The Centre for Integrity in the Defence Sector (CIDS) and Transparency International UK’s Defence and Security Programme (TI-DSP) are proud to present the first-ever practical handbook on how to develop an integrity action plan for the defence sector.
“This new handbook shows that building integrity and countering corruption are important issues for the Norwegian Ministry of Defence”, says Secretary General in the Norwegian MoD, Erik Lund-Isaksen. “Norway has been an active contributor to NATO’s Building Integrity programme since 2007, and the establishment of the Centre for Integrity in the Defence Sector under the Norwegian MoD proves our active commitment. Our collaboration with Transparency International UK’s Defence and Security programme has been particularly valuable, and the co-production of the handbook reinforces the close working relationship between Norway and the United Kingdom on defence-related issues. I am convinced that the handbook will be well received and used extensively by the various defence institutions”.
