Much of Delna’s work involves awareness raising about issues related to the development of the rule of law and democracy.



  • ADVOCACY. A crucial core principle of Delna’s work is advocacy. Delna advocates for its anti-corruption policies lawfully and ethically, doing so in collaboration with policy activists, government and municipal bodies, in order to create an environment free of corruption. Delna’s major partners include other NGOs and private initiatives. An important part of the passage of draft legislation, legislative amendments and Delna’s other policy initiatives is participation in Saeima committees, sub-committees and working groups, in order to ensure the traceability and improve the quality of decisions, and reinforce the rule of law.


  • CITIZEN EMPOWERMENT THROUGH ACCESS TO INFORMATION. The principle of information transparency is an instrument that society uses to control the work of government, thus improving the quality of public administration. Transparency helps society to engage in decision-making. Moreover, it reduces the risks of corruption, collusion, and unlawful or ineffective conduct or both, as well as increasing society’s confidence in public administration.


  • MONITORING DECISION MAKING. Delna has proposed and effected several improvements in the effectiveness of public administration. In addition, Delna actively observes and publicly evaluates political and public administration decision-making (in selection committees and tenders, etc.). Without Delna’s active monitoring of the processes by which public officials are appointed and procurements are organised, there would be no transparency. The absence of such monitoring not only generates public suspicion and distrust, but also conditions in which corruption can flourish.


  • RESEARCH. Delna’s reports, papers and guide books in English are available on our publications page.
