2024 OECD Global Anti-Corruption & Integrity Forum

Session 6: Insights from the OECD Public Integrity Indicators

Mar 26, 2024 | 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Parallel Session

Description

A record breaking number of countries, representing 40% of the world population, will hold national elections in 2024. With the rise of economic and geopolitical tensions, the classic forms of liberal democracies are under existential threat. Because corruption erodes public trust and undermines the legitimacy of institutions, developing public integrity policies and implementing anti-corruption measures can reinforce democracies by fostering trust, accountability and transparency, and enable an environment where citizens can confidently participate in the democratic process. This session will present insights from the OECD Public Integrity Indicators on the measures countries implement, and the tools they use in practice, to strengthen the resilience of their democratic systems towards corruption risks. The panellists will discuss evidence on various public integrity topics that should be adequately managed to strengthen democracies, such as conflict-of-interests, political finance, legislative procedures, transparency of public information and internal audit.
