Pushing for more and better | G20 Action on Beneficial Ownership & Public Procurement Transparency, Open Data and More

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will provide an area for discussion and reflection around the implementation of last year’s civil society advocacy wins under a Turkish presidency and a look ahead to what could be achieved when China hosts next year.

In 2014 Transparency International and partners played an instrumental role in the adoption of a G20 Anti-Corruption Action Plan 2015-2016. It committed the G20 to focus on integrity in public procurement, as well as open data. To learn and reflect upon these efforts, an update will be provided on both issues by Maggie Murphy who coordinates TI’s advocacy work at the G20.

TI and partners have also successfully advocated for a formal mechanism through which civil society can engage with the G20; the “Civil 20” or C20. Current steering committee member, Oya Ozarslan will provide an update of civil society’s efforts to influence the G20 this year and provide some tips for future civil society hosts.

A second major win of 2014 under the Australian presidency was the adoption of the G20 Beneficial Ownership Transparency Principles. This year an assessment of how well each G20 country is implementing those Principles to highlight areas of improvement is being conducted. Maira Martini who has led a G20 research project will share  some preliminary findings for discussion. The group will have the opportunity to chat over the findings and discuss the next steps with a view to ensure greater implementation across all G20 countries.

Finally a discussion concerning G20 advocacy in 2016 and beyond will take place, casting an eye towards China’s presidency next year. Participants interested in advocacy, partnership building and G20 outcomes are encouraged  to attend and join the discussion.

Let's talk about accountability for the grand corrupt... And the illicit financial flows that are sent ping-ponging around the world to buy mansions, jets and yachts. Who would you nominate as the worst of a bad bunch?
