Image of publication cover

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. The overall picture in Latvia shows a general weakness in the party-political sphere and the business sector. The former is exemplified by the relatively low scores of political parties and the legislature. The latter manifests itself in the score of the business and, in part, also the media. Imperfect as they are, it is the executive and judiciary, which, together with the CPCB and the SAO, form the stronger part of the state apparatus.
