5th November, 10:30 – 14:00 (including lunch)

Room A5E-1, European Parliament, Brussels

During the 2019 European elections, over 600 candidates signed Transparency International’s pledge to renew the EU’s values and put integrity at the core of its mission. With numerous signatories having been elected to office, now is the time to take concrete action and stand up for integrity in the new European Parliament.

In this round table discussion, organised in conjunction with Transparency International Netherlands and EPACA, we will hear the views of elected pledge signatories and take stock on the progress made in implementing our key recommendations. Particular focus will be given to the establishment of a permanent anti-corruption intergroup.
