Anti-corruption and integrity in the public sector

Coalition of Influencers on Integrity in Public Decision-Making


Like a game of snakes and ladders, some interests can gain considerable influence on public policy-making processes, whilst others lose out. This has inevitable impacts on the outcome of public policies and people’s lives.

The Coalition welcomes stakeholders from government, business, academia and civil society working on integrity related to decision-making. It is designed to serve as an inclusive and non-discriminatory platform to constructively examine the tools and effects of vested interests’ influence on public policy. All coalition members have the opportunity to provide inputs, and the OECD promotes a balance of views, interests, and opinions by involving entities with different viewpoints.


Third meeting of the Coalition of Influencers

27 March 2020

OECD, Paris

Influence is a part of public decision-making processes in all countries, but the capacity of powerful interests to shape the outcome of public policies has raised concerns over governments’ ability to tackle challenges such as climate change, financial stability, and internet freedoms, and to promote effective food and nutrition policies.

Join the third meeting of the Coalition of Influencers on
27 March 2020 to discuss policy solutions, business initiatives and civil society’s role to ensure integrity and equity in public decision-making.
