About Us

Our expertise …

… is in the overall area of governance, political systems, public administration, service delivery and anti-corruption. Based on thematic and regional focus, the overall coordination of assignments is assumed by Francesc Bellaubi or Heike Scherff.

Our team members have worked with leading international development, academic and anti-corruption organisations, among them Transparency International (TI), the European Commission (EC), the German Development Cooperation (GIZ) and in projects with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), World Bank (WB), Department for International Development (DfID) and Foundations. Core and network members have additional expertise in addressing gender equality.

Our team has:

  • A strong track-record in achieving public trust & cooperation as well as reputational gains for leaders and organisations across countries, sectors and issues
  • Extensive experience with governance and anti-corruption approaches, training, risk-assessments and integrity measures for a number of sectors, with a particular focus on water
  • Links to leading forums and networks, as well as an international expert pool

Much of our experience has been gained at the frontline of change, with local communities, civil society organisations and ‘champions’ in Government. In the development and application of innovative tools we have benefited from our cooperation with other actors at local, national and international level. This included accountability tools designed to deliver on¬†integrity, inclusion and responsiveness in public-decision-making. In a number of challenging contexts, our approach successfully demonstrated a business case for integrity.
