To date, Global Integrity has conducted six rounds of research on the United States — including three rounds of the Global Integrity Report, two Local Integrity Initiatives, and one round on Money, Politics, and Transparency.
Global Integrity Report
The Global Integrity Report is an essential guide to anti-corruption institutions and mechanisms around the world, intended to help policymakers, advocates, journalists and citizens identify and anticipate the areas where corruption is more likely to occur within the public sector. The Report evaluates both anti-corruption legal frameworks and the practical implementation and enforcement of those frameworks, and takes a close look at whether citizen can effectively access and use anti-corruption safeguards.
Local Integrity Initiative
While most of Global Integrity’s assessments are national in nature, for some projects research is conducted at sub-national levels. The State Integrity Investigation is a collaboration with the Center for Public Integrity that assesses corruption risks in all fifty US states.
Money, Politics and Transparency
The Money, Politics and Transparency research was conducted on a set of “Campaign Finance Indicators” designed to assess the current state of political finance transparency and regulation in 54 countries. The MPT research was undertaken to provide fresh data for understanding the relative strengths and weaknesses in global practices around political finance regulation, transparency and enforcement.
