European Union Integrity Study 2.0

An update to our 2014 study on the transparency, integrity and accountability of the main EU institutions

Transparent and accountable institutions, with strong integrity policies to prevent conflicts of interest, are the very foundation of a political system that serves citizens. Transparency International has developed the national integrity system methodology to evaluate countries’ overall resilience to corruption risks.

In 2014, we adapted this methodology to the supranational institutions of the European Union, leading to the publication of the EU integrity system study covering the EU’s main institutions, as well as the EU’s bodies working in the areas of justice, investigation and prosecution of fraud, and good governance, namely: European Commission, European Parliament, Council of the EU, European Council, Court of Justice of the EU, European Court of Auditors (CJEU), European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), Europol, Eurojust, and the European Ombudsman. This was followed by further studies of the EU’s economic governance institutions.

On the occasion of a new European Parliament and Commission to be elected in 2019, we are preparing an update of the 2014 assessment – with three studies zooming in specifically on the European Parliament, the European Commission, and the Council of the EU.
