Manual on Preventing Corruption and Promoting Integrity

Dear colleagues,

On the International Anti-Corruption Day, EPAC/EACN proudly presents the final publication of the EPAC/EACN working group “EU Integrity”.

EPAC/EACN set up the working group “EU Integrity” on the occasion of the 18th EPAC/EACN Annual Professional Conference and General Assembly in 2018. “EU Integrity” had the objective to promote integrity by sharing experiences and developing standards and strategies, as well as to exchange best practices. To ensure a comprehensive approach, “EU Integrity” consisted of four sub-working groups. Each of them covered different aspects of integrity: “Support and protection of whistleblowers”, “Interagency cooperation and common standards for its improvement”, “Educational and value management measures” and “Integrity and anti-corruption standards”. The Austrian Federal Bureau of Anti-Corruption (BAK) carried out the overall coordination of the “EU Integrity” working group.

The Manual on Preventing Corruption and Promoting Integrity comprises the overall outcome and key findings of the working group. With this manual, EPAC/EACN provide a publication of significant relevance in the fields of integrity and anti-corruption. The publication was developed in the context of anti-corruption authorities and police oversight bodies but is applicable to all other sectors across the EU.

We wish you a happy International Anti-Corruption Day!

Your EPAC/EACN Secretariat
