    Making the Most of Public Investment in the Eastern Slovak Republic

    The Slovak Republic joined the European Union in 2004, the Schengen area in 2007 and the euro in 2009. These events, coupled with decentralisation reform and the creation of administrative regions, have brought significant change. While overall growth has been impressive compared to OECD countries overall, benefits have not accrued equally across the country. Public investment could potentially improve regional conditions and attract private funding, but governance bottlenecks stand in the way. This case study shows that the main obstacles to effective public investment are linked to high local fragmentation as well as the challenges national and subnational administrations face in designing and implementing investment strategies that correspond to local needs. Drawing on a detailed set of indicators, the study provides recommendations to address these challenges and make the most of public investment in the Slovak Republic.

    Committing to Effective Whistleblower Protection

    Whistleblower protection is essential for safeguarding the public interest, for promoting a culture of accountability and integrity in both public and private institutions, and for encouraging the reporting of misconduct, fraud and corruption wherever it occurs. While many countries are increasingly developing legal frameworks to protect whistleblowers, more can be done to mainstream integrity and promote open organisational cultures. This report analyses whistleblower protection frameworks in OECD countries, identifies areas for reform and proposes next steps to strengthen effective and comprehensive whistleblower protection laws in both the public and private sectors.

    Recommandation de 2015 du Conseil de l'OCDE sur l'égalité hommes-femmes dans la vie publique

    La Recommandation de 2015 du Conseil de l'OCDE sur l'égalité hommes-femmes dans la vie publique plaide en faveur d’une stratégie interministérielle de réforme en faveur de l’égalité hommes-femmes, des mécanismes solides de responsabilisation et de pérennisation des initiatives dans ce domaine, ainsi que des outils et des indicateurs appuyant des décisions politiques inclusives. Elle encourage dans le même temps une approche prenant en compte l’ensemble de la société afin de contribuer à la réduction des stéréotypes, d’inciter les femmes à participer à la vie politique et de supprimer les dispositions qui, explicitement ou implicitement, contrarient l’égalité entre hommes et femmes. Cette Recommandation est sans équivalent. Elle fournit en effet aux gouvernements, mais aussi aux parlements et aux systèmes judiciaires, des orientations claires, opportunes et faciles à mettre en application, en vue d’une réelle égalité entre hommes et femmes, de la prise en compte des initiatives en faveur des femmes, et d’un accès plus égal aux fonctions publiques d’hommes et de femmes de conditions diverses.
