Is corruption and lack of transparent governance at the root of the EUs crisis?
Fraud and corruption have been at the heart of Europe’s sovereign debt crisis, highlighting deep flaws in the integrity systems of  the public and private sector. The EU’s response to these events has also raised concerns about the nature of democratic governance and accountability at this level. Could increased transparency have prevented these problems? Looking forward, how can the EU combine greater transparency, more effective decision-making and a zero-tolerance approach to corruption?

Assessing the state of corruption in the EU

Just how big a problem is corruption in the EU? Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) is perhaps the best-known tool for assessing the state of corruption, but other tools and methods exist. The European Commission will also provide a comprehensive overview with a new anti-corruption report beginning in 2013. What do these existing tools show? How can they be combined to greatest effect? What is their role in fighting corruption on the ground?

Chair: Hugo Brady, Senior Research Fellow, Centre for European Reform (confirmed)
Jakub Boratynski, Head of Organised Crime Unit, DG Home Affairs, European Commission (confirmed)
Luis de Sousa, President, Transparencia e Integridade, Associacao Civica (TIAC) (confirmed)

Q&A session
12:00-12:45
Integrity and transparency in EU financial sector reform

Lack of transparency was at the heart of the 2008 financial crisis – it allowed poor corporate decision-making,, conflict of interest and excessive risk-taking to thrive. It was aided and abetted by the opacity of financial markets and instruments. In response to this analysis, the EU has launched an ambitious programme of financial reform. Will this really result in a more accountable, transparent and sustainable financial system or will it be business as usual?

Chair: Carl Dolan, Policy Officer for private sector, Transparency International Liaison Office to the EU (confirmed)

The EU as a global anti-corruption actor

The wave of popular revolts that swept North Africa and the Middle East showed that the EU cannot ignore the existence of pervasive corruption beyond its borders.  Its role in setting corporate standards, trade and development – as well as its increasing diplomatic reach – can have a direct effect on the fight against corruption and improving the welfare of billions. How can the EU ensure a coherent anti-corruption strategy in its external policies?

Eliminating waste and corruption in EU funds: the role of public procurement
Goods and services procured by public authorities account for approximately 17% of the EU’s GDP and can be an important lever of economic growth. Yet is also an area fraught with corruption risk. EU legislation has an important role in ensure that these funds are used fairly and efficiently, but how effective are the procedures and sanctions? Looking beyond the EU framework, what can member states do and how can they learn from each other?
