Conference - Building a stronger EU integrity framework

Vidéo 09:45 - 12:30

Hôte : European Ombudsman

Lieu :  Bruxelles, Belgique

Paul Henri Spaak Room, Sofitel Hotel, Place Jourdan 1, 1040 Brussels

A strong EU integrity framework is essential for public trust in EU decision making. The current system is complex, with several oversight authorities and multiple, overlapping rules applying to each institution. As the recent Qatargate revelations have demonstrated, the system remains vulnerable to serious breaches. With this in mind, the European Ombudsman has invited high-level speakers from the main oversight authorities as well as the European Commission and European Parliament to discuss the gaps in the architecture of, and compliance with, the integrity framework. What changes are needed to make it stronger? The discussion will also focus on proposals to create an Independent Ethics Body and its potential role in further improving the integrity of the EU administration.

Registration for the event is now closed.
The conference will also be webstreamed on the day, on this page.
