Implementing integrity practices in GCC private and public businesses

The aim of the project is to influence the behavior of business leaders, government representatives and students across the Gulf Region. It works through education and incentivization, and by building a local community that is sharing good integrity practices, leading the way in the implementation of better standards, and actively encouraging others to do so. The project is developing practical tools to be implemented by companies, particularly first-time adopters of such higher levels of integrity and transparency.

The project has three key objectives:

  • Develop a GCC Integrity Measure and publish it widely to provide businesses with a tool to measure integrity and thereby foster integrity and transparency within businesses in the region.
  • Facilitate the creation of a Collective Action community, and enhance dialogue between the business community, civil society and government, highlighting the business benefits to align interests and incentives in implementing higher standards.
  • Reach out to future business leaders by encouraging universities in the region to include practical experience of integrity practices in their curricula and by actively engaging students with activities such as projects and case study competitions.
