This NIS country report aims to assess the performance of the formal legal provisions safeguarding corruption as well as their actual institutional practice, by analysing their strong and weak points. Not only does the study highlight specific areas in which reform is needed, but it can be also used to compare performances across institutions or sectors. Even though the Netherlands is frequently considered to be a corruption-free society in the eyes of international business, yet there are signs of a lack of transparency, of integrity, of accountability even in the country, as recent examples in this study for sectors as different as real estate, education and public procurement show.
