Foreign Policy wrote a piece on how Lviv is fighting corruption and the role of Governance & Integrity in that fight:

“Samopomich, and specifically its fixation with corruption, are precisely why Geraedts is in Lviv. He and his colleague, Ruud Meij (also a Dutch philosopher, also grey-haired, but more reserved, and wearing a wide-brimmed hat), are on a pro bono assignment from their firm, Governance and Integrity Nederland, to instruct employees of the city government how to cultivate a mysterious yet vital quality called “integrity.”

Geraedts and Meij first came to Lviv three years ago after concluding that it offered fertile ground for their ideas. Sadovyi was looking for a way to get beyond the dysfunction of the city hall’s bureaucracy, dominated by local power brokers and virulent nationalists. Geraedts and Meij seemed to offer a suitably unconventional solution. The mayor’s chief of staff at the time, Oleh Bereziuk (now the leader of the Samopomich fraction in parliament), recognized this and brought them onboard.”
