Corruption affects young people as a result of their involvement in almost every aspect of society — as students, activists, citizens, workers, customers and voters. At the same time young people are a powerful force of change. Panellists will discuss how young people experience corruption and through inspiring stories of change hear about the tactics of youth in the fight against corruption.


Coffee break


From activism to politics?
Anna Ascani, Member of Parliament, Italy
Tamar Chugoshvili, Assistant to the Prime Minister of Georgia on Human Rights and Gender Equality Issues
Duarte Marques, Member of Parliament, Portugal
Cobus de Swardt, Managing Director, Transparency International
Moderator: Natalie Sedletska, Journalist, Vaclav Havel Fellow, RFE/RL (Ukrainian Service)

Young Members of Parliament and politicians who have recently entered politics - often after engaging in protest movements or other types of social activism in their country or internationally - will discuss what motivated their decision to enter politics and what their experience has been. Are young people entering politics in their country? What have they been able to achieve and what impediments have they experienced to incorporate the views and interests of young people into the policy making process?

17.00-17.15 Concluding remarks
Anthony Gooch, Director of Public Affairs and Communications, OECD
