OECD Global Forum: Building Trust and Reinforcing Democracy

Plenary Session 3: Reinforcing integrity and countering undue influence in democracies

Nov 17, 2022 | 10:30 AM - 12:20 PM

Plenary room


Integrity is an inherent value of democracy that ensures that the government responds to the interests of the people. From elections to policy implementation, integrity ensures that everybody has a voice, that elected officials properly represent and respond to the interests of their constituencies, that there is no undue influence of government policies, and that overall the action of government is aligned with the public interest. Solid integrity systems also help to strengthen the resilience of democracies to foreign interference by non-democracies. This session will unpack how governments can further strengthen integrity in elections, political affairs, and policymaking.
