New book out: Integriteit van het Lokaal Bestuur

by Zeger van der Wal on May 17th, 2011

A new book on local integrity policies in the Netherlands was recently published by Boom|Lemma.

The book, that was co-authored by myself and a number of colleagues from the research group Integrity of Governance, reports on a survey study among raadsgriffiers and municipal secretaries of Dutch municipalities, with a response rate of nearly 60%.

It provides a recent overview of the integrity policies in place, their visibility and effectiveness, as well as an account of integrity problems during the last two years.

The book is highly relevant for practitioners as well as academics and students that are interested in local government, ethics and integrity.
