Fighting corruption in the public sector

Restoring Trust in Government: Addressing Money and Influence in Public Decision Making

 

 

Venue

OECD Conference Centre, Paris

Date

14-15 November 2013


The worst global financial and economic crisis in recent history has taken a toll on the very fundamentals of our society: today, a majority of citizens surveyed within 26 countries distrust government. This feeling of mistrust is heightened by concerns about fairness of fiscal consolidation measures and the sacrifices required for structural adjustments: is the burden shared fairly? Are governments adequately protecting the general public interest?

 

What did the Policy Dialogue Forum address?


The Forum provided a unique opportunity for key actors and stakeholders to discuss and share experiences, lessons learned and good practices in promoting a comprehensive approach to safeguarding the policy making process from undue influence. In co-operation with key partners and stakeholders, this Forum aimed at shaping a common understanding of the policy road ahead in the realm of political finance.

 

Objectives

The Policy Dialogue (i) took stock of the key challenges and trends in regulating money in politics; (ii) identify emerging risks and opportunities; (iii) shaped, within a wider good governance agenda, a common understanding of the policy options ahead and trade-offs in enhancing fairness, integrity and transparency in decision making including in the realm of political finance; and (iv) mobilised partners to work together and promote synergies in the future agenda.
