TI Anti-Corruption Handbook (ACH): National Integrity System in practice

The ACH is a practical guide which aims to assist the process of designing and applying anti-corruption measures – from legal reform to institution-building. Intended as a one-stop reference for practitioners around the world, it provides a unique and up-to-date overview of key reform elements, developing guidelines for their effective implementation illustrated by examples of good practice.

The ACH is based on TI’s National Integrity System approach to countering corruption, which offers a framework for assessing the adequacy and effectiveness of national anti-corruption efforts. The ACH seeks to build on this approach, addressing the key elements of anti-corruption reform in a useful and practical way.

The Handbook features key measures for tackling corruption, grouped into six main areas:

1. Country strategies and policies, including:

  • government anti-corruption strategies
  • access to information
  • anti-corruption education

2. Oversight and control bodies, including:

  • supreme audit institutions
  • anti-corruption agencies

3. The public sector, including:

  • public sector codes of conduct

4. The political system, including:

  • party political and campaign financing

5. The legal system, including:

  • anti-corruption conventions

6. Non-governmental actors, including:

  • media
  • private sector
  • corporate governance
