Most funding for the accountability, anti-corruption, transparency and integrity building sector comes from traditional sources; a small number of bilateral, multilateral aid agencies and foundations. The amount of available funding from these sources has grown over the past ten years or so and the sector has expanded to include hundreds of organisations throughout the world.

In countries and firms where people trust their leaders and colleagues trust one another, there’s more innovation and better business and social outcomes. Mistrust and politics are expensive, time-consuming and dispiriting. Like most things, business works better when the energy spent on doubt, fear and suspicion are reduced. For most people, the feeling of being trusted leads to an increased desire to be trustworthy. This virtuous cycle can take your team to great interdependent heights.

The challenges of maintaining integrity in academic environments have always been considerable. Now, more than ever, questions are being asked about what institutions are doing to ensure that their processes are free from corruption, fraud, and cheating.
