In 2013, Transparency International Vanuatu commenced a National Integrity System assessment. This is the third National Integrity System assessment that has been done in Vanuatu, with previous assessments occurring in 2004 and 2006. The assessment focuses on an evaluation of the key public institutions and non-state institutions in a country’s governance system with regard to (1) their overall capacity, (2) their internal governance systems and procedures, and (3) their role in the overall integrity system. The assessment examines both the formal legal framework of each pillar and the actual institutional practice. The analysis highlights discrepancies between the formal provisions and reality on the ground, making it clear where there are gaps in the integrity system.

It is Transparency International’s hope that the Vanuatu assessment will generate a set of concrete recommendations for the country’s key institutions and other local stakeholders to pursue in order to strengthen transparency, accountability and integrity. It should also provide a set of good governance benchmarks for the citizens of Vanuatu to hold their government and elected officials to account through public dialogue, policy engagement and voting.
