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. One of the main issues emerging from our research is that there is a systematic discrepancy between the scores for legal framework and actual practice and performance of different institutions in the anticorruption field. Second, some institutions are marketed as anticorruption fighters, when actually their primary functions are different or have changed over time. Finally, another paradox has been demonstrated by the anticorruption activities in Bulgaria: the continuing reforms aimed at tackling corruption have not brought back the trust of the people in institutions.
