National Integrity System Assessment Serbia 2011

The main activity within this project is research, based on the methodology designed and developed by Transparency International, known internationally as the National Integrity System, or "NIS" for short. NIS research has so far been conducted in over 70 countries around the world .

NIS methodology envisages, among other things, analysis of legal solutions, current practice of their application and mutual relations of a wide range of institutions relevant for the successful functioning of the fight against corruption in a society. The NIS methodology starts from the institutions and examines whether they have the appropriate powers, financial and other resources to fulfill their role in the fight against corruption, but also whether the mechanisms provided by law work in practice. Institutions are seen as "supporting pillars" of the system of social integrity. Starting from the assumption that the weakness of any pillar reflects on the stability of the whole system, the aim of the research is not only to determine where the problems lie, but also, to the extent possible, how these problems could be overcome. In parallel, NIS research usually contains recommendations for amending strategic anti-corruption acts, enactment or amendment of relevant regulations, but also other suggestions concerning the practice of law enforcement.

The following have been identified as "supporting pillars" at the international level:
Executive authority
Judicial power
State Administration
Political parties
Election body
Supreme Audit Institution
Prosecution and police
Specialized anti-corruption agencies
The media
Civil society
Business sector
Within each country, it is possible to extend the research to other relevant groups (eg local government, regional authorities, other specialized bodies dealing with anti-corruption issues).

The project lasted 12 months (June 2010- June 2011). The final analysis with the findings of the NIS research was published in a special publication in Serbian and English:
