Over the years, Transparency International has conducted many studies in European states on how their legal and political systems address corruption risks and integrity gaps. However, while these studies revealed much about potential risks in individual states, they only hinted at such possible weak points for the European Union institutions.
In 2013 and 2014, the Transparency International EU Office has been conducting a study of the EU’s integrity system. This project looks at corruption risks in 10 EU institutions, examining the rules and practices designed to prevent corruption occurring internally in these institutions, as well as how each institution is fostering public sector integrity, and also contributing to the wider fight against corruption in Europe. In April 2014, the first EU Integrity System Report was published.
