Example in practice
The Netherlands’ most recent NIS report reveals that its modern civil service system deters corruption.
The parliamentary system holds government accountable; administrative law guarantees decision-making is in the public interest; and a free press works to expose instances of public corruption.
However, the lack of public disclosure and rules for elites, as well as other institutional weaknesses, demand an independent body be created to protect public integrity and promote related policies.
