The purpose of the National Integrity Study on Ireland is to assess the National Integrity System, in theory (laws and institutions) and practice (how well they work). It provides a benchmark for measuring further developments and a basis for comparison among a range of countries. It studies signal areas requiring priority action and also form the basis from which stakeholders may assess existing anti-corruption initiatives. This study helps explain, for example,which institutions or sectors,otherwise known as `pillars? have been more successful and why, whether they are mutually supportive and what factors support or inhibit their effectiveness. This creates a strong empirical basis that adds to our understanding of strong or weak performers.
