Corruption threatens democracy, turning governments into tools of the few and the connected. Transparency — specifically data on what elected officials own and to whom they’re working — is a necessary part of the solution.

The OGP Support Unit partnered with the Global Data Barometer and other organizations to produce one of the first global analyses of the state of political corruption-related data—covering areas such as lobbying, asset disclosure, and contracts. This session will explore the challenges and opportunities in Africa and the Middle East, based on the research findings. A slate of thematic and regional experts will then contextualize the findings in a panel discussion.

Then, we want to hear from you. The session will have small group discussions on how to use OGP’s new flagship report on political corruption to improve action plans and help us move more towards fair and transparent decision-making.
