The Centre

Terje i samtale
The Centre for Integrity in the Defence Sector (CIDS) was established in 2012 on the initiative of the Norwegian Ministry of Defence.
The centre seeks to promote and enhance professional integrity and good governance in the defence and security spheres. CIDS’ approach is comprehensive and its dedicated team of experts applies a variety of tools in their efforts to build competence, raise awareness and reduce risks of corruption.
CIDS contributes to several training programmes, seminars and conferences, and implements in-country projects in collaboration with local experts. As part of our effort we also publish handbooks and guidance documents on building integrity and good governance. The centre contributes to a number of international integrity building initiatives and serves as Department Head for NATO’s Building Integrity (BI) programme.
CIDS is located in the center of Oslo, together with the Norwegian Institute for Defence Studies.
