What is the Integrity Audit?

Political party integrity audit tool is a practical, online self-assessment resource to guide political parties from southeastern Europe in identifying challenges and opportunities for increasing internal integrity-related mechanisms and practices. The assessment helps parties in strategic action planning in this regard. The audit will not only support the development of the internal party strategies to promote political integrity, but will also encourage development of sensitivity towards core principles of political integrity throughout its organizational environment, including headquarters and local party branches promoted by its members and public officeholders. 

In the Integrity Audit section, representatives of political parties are able to take the questionnaire and automatically receive the feedback including recommendations aimed to help parties to address identified gaps. The questionnaire consists of 5 sections covering key areas of political parties’ integrity.

We sat down with Ms. Khushbu Agrawal, Programme Officer at International IDEA, to discuss why transparency in political finance is critical for democracy. Stay tuned!
