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.

Implementing whistleblower protection in Peru

There is a general consensus among policy makers that effective whistleblower protection is needed to promote transparency, promote integrity, and detect misconduct. To this end, Peru, like a number of OECD countries, has enacted a dedicated whistleblower protection law. This chapter provides a review and analysis of Peru s whistleblower protection system and proposes a set of actions for consideration. Although important steps have been made in protecting whistleblowers and safeguarding integrity, the present section recommends that Peru make additional efforts in order to strengthen protections, enhance awareness and systematically review and evaluate its whistleblowing system.
