 Parliamentary Dilemmas on Integrity and Anti-Corruption.
Organised by OSCE/ODIHR
The Session aims at highlighting how integrity and anti-corruption standards for elected members of parliaments are constantly changing over time, with the need for parliaments to change the rules governing their behaviour as to avoid the risk of increasing the damaging gulf between public expectations and parliamentary conduct. Tools to promote institutional integrity, such as the adoption of codes of conduct, can enhance democratic governance and improve accountability to the society. Through the use of tailored case studies and the support of a Member of Parliament, the Session will encourage an interactive brainstorming exercise with all participants on selected integrity dilemmas that parliamentarians might face during their functions, discussing specific country practises and general approaches. The Session will also benefit from the findings of the upcoming Second edition of the OSCE/ODIHR Background Study on Parliamentary Integrity, as well as from the ODIHR experience in supporting national parliaments across the OSCE region in the adoption of parliamentary integrity mechanisms in more than 15 countries, also encouraging a broader reflection on the relationship between integrity and anti-corruption approaches.

Helping Local Business Benefit from Tech Innovation
Organised by The Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE)
Highly complex and innovative technologies are revolutionizing how large companies in sophisticated markets battle corruption. Smaller firms in emerging markets struggle to employ these same advances due to high costs and local operating constraints. Businesses that operate in countries with high levels of corruption often have the least access to innovative systems. In those countries, in order for effective anti-corruption efforts to be sustainable, it is crucial for family-run to mid-sized firms to embrace integrity, compliance and public monitoring regardless of system sophistication. The Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) has two partners working in this area. The Thai Institute of Directors’ Coalition Action Coalition Against Corruption and Institut arabe des chefs d’entreprises of Tunisia have developed mechanisms for integrating local businesses and their technologies into the fight against corruption. Globally, CIPE works at the intersection of democratic and market development supporting local businesses to advocate for reforms to reduce corruption and hold government accountable.

Building towards Institutional Integrity: An Australian Case Study
Organised by Blavatnik School of Government, Oxford University
The integrity regime of the Australian Public Service (‘APS’) is already well-regarded internationally. However, in a once in thirty year, root-and-branch review, the government has commissioned research to explore how to take it to the next level: institutional integrity. This research was undertaken by the Building Integrity Programme (‘BIP’), a centre within Blavatnik School of Government, Oxford University, in conjunction with the Australian and New Zealand School of Government. BIP has developed a novel framework for conceptualising and evaluating the integrity of public institutions. This framework starts from understanding integrity as an institutional quality, and only derivatively as a quality of public officers.
This panel present the results of this evaluation, and its recommendations to improve the values, code of conduct, embedding practices, invigilating mechanisms and integrity institutions of the APS. In particular, we explore the value of ‘stewardship,’ the challenges of promoting integrity in a devolved environment, and the need for twin ‘integrity commissions.’
