The Global Integrity Report is the world’s leading assessment of the existence, effectiveness, and citizen access to key national-level anti-corruption mechanisms used to hold governments accountable. Over 300 quantitative indicators inform detailed country assessments that are written and peer-reviewed by local on-the-ground experts, not international analysts. Key findings from this year’s report include the following: foreign aid may not help anti-corruption enforcement in aid-dependent countries, even with donor emphasis on good governance; despite robust elections, Ukraine still faces significant overall challenges; and power sharing agreements in Kenya and Zimbabwe still ignore conflicts of interest reforms. The presentation will focus on these and other findings of the 2009 Global Integrity Report.
Nathaniel Heller has split his time between social entrepreneurship, investigative reporting, and traditional public service since 1999, when he joined the Center for Public Integrity. At the Center, along with Marianne Camerer and Charles Lewis, he helped develop the Integrity Indicators and conceptual model for what would become Global Integrity. In 2002 he joined the U.S. Department of State, focusing on European security and transatlantic relations. He later served as a foreign policy fellow to the late Senator Edward Kennedy in 2004. In 2005, Heller returned to stand up Global Integrity as an independent international organization and has led the group since.
