Analysis of Greenland’s ethical contingency (NIS assessment)

In the period from August 2011 to October 2011, the independent consulting firm Nordic Consulting Group conducted a study of Greenland’s ethical contingency.

An “NIS assessment” (National Integrity System assessment) comprises a study of the integrity, transparency and accountability of various social institutions. It is a holistic approach to the study of society, and therefore focuses on both the public sector, civil society and the market. More information

The intention is that this study should form the precursor to a full NIS assessment, and the study therefore initially focuses on the public sector. Through an analysis of Greenlandic legislation, official documents and interviews with respondents, the aim is to identify weaknesses in Greenlandic law and its administration in relation to transparency. The study will then make recommendations regarding how these weaknesses can be remedied.
