Institutional Integrity: An Essential Building Block of Sustainable Reform
Tetra Tech sponsored a study of institutional integrity, looking beyond its own experience to examine academic research and international practice. The study resulted in this institutional integrity report, which examines a promising approach for addressing a particular aspect of change—the fundamental need for competent, fair, and accountable public institutions to achieve good governance.
Societal change is a long-term process that requires participatory analysis to establish goals, the capacity to communicate those goals, and persistent effort by a broad range of stakeholders with continuous monitoring of progress and flexible adaptation to respond to lessons learned and changing conditions.
The report examines the concept of institutional integrity, describes how it has been applied in practice, presents a case study of experience in Latin America, and offers recommendations for international cooperation to contribute to sustainable progress in public integrity.
