Public sector integrity is crucial for sustained socioeconomic development. This report assesses Peru's integrity system at both the central and subnational levels of government. It provides a set of recommendations to strengthen and consolidate this system, instil a culture of integrity, and ensure accountability through control and enforcement. Beyond reviewing the institutional arrangement of the system, the report analyses the policies and practices related to political finance, the promotion of public ethics and the management of conflict of interests, lobbying, whistleblower protection, internal control and risk management, as well as the disciplinary regime and the role of the criminal justice system in containing corruption.

Enhancing Peru's political finance framework

This chapter reviews the legal, administrative and institutional framework upon which political campaigns are financed in Peru. It also discusses the challenges to effective oversight of these laws and regulations, and potential means by which to strengthen the system against impropriety. Due to the fact that political parties solely rely on private funding, the risk of policy capture by powerful private interests is high in Peru. Introducing balanced funding of political parties and election campaigns is a key policy lever to mitigate the risk of policy capture and increase integrity in the public sector.
