Integrity Action Plan. A handbook for practitioners in defence establishments (2014)
While there are innumerable cases of reported corruption in the defence sector worldwide, there is very little scientific research and few specially designed instruments to help ministries and governments prevent and reduce the risk of corruption. This handbook aims at helping practitioners in defence establishments produce real and lasting change by developing an Integrity Action Plan.
