This brief summarises the key insights arising from the Expert ‘Think-Ins’ on Measuring Integrity which took place in October 2022. In this workshop, the participants explored why measuring integrity might be preferable to measuring the prevalence of corruption,

This background note explains why a focus on integrity could potentially help address gaps in corruption measurement, bringing fresh momentum to this endeavour.
