Corruption Risks in Hungary 2011: National Integrity Study (Executive Summary)

The National Integrity System (NIS) assessment approach provides a framework which anti-corruption organisations can use to analyse both the extent and causes of corruption in a given country as well as the effectiveness of national anti-corruption efforts. Based on the 2007 NIS report Hungary can be characterised as a country with a moderate National Integrity System overall, but with notable areas of weakness. The NIS assessment suggests that the electoral management body, and the ombudsman are the strongest pillars, while the political parties, the business sector and the anti-corruption agencies are the weakest. Unfortunately, there are very few areas where we can see a real breakthrough since the last NIS.
