Introduction to Korea's Anti-Corruption Initiative Assessment
USPC co-authored a practical publication which presents the Anti-Corruption Initiative Assessment (AIA) tool of the Republic of Korea's Anti-Corruption & Civil Rights Commission (ACRC). AIA combines qualitative and quantitative assessment with a systematic scoring system through a regularized process, and serves to evaluate how participating organizations have followed-up on ACRC’s anti-corruption guidelines to introduce various institutional mechanisms to prevent corruption. Every year, all scores are publicized and organizations are ranked. In this way, AIA becomes a motivational tool for the heads of public institutions to put in place and improve institutional measures for preventing corruption.
As a practical tool, this publication details the actual assessment methodology including ACRC’s assessment indicators and templates. The Spanish, Arabic and Russian versions are forthcoming.
