Towards managing conflict of interest

Croatian conflict of interest system has numerous deficiencies that contribute to declining levels of citizens’ trust in public institutions. Media are quick to report on scandals arising from undeclared and non-managed conflict of interest, as it is embedded in an increasing number of corruption cases against persons in high politics. Croatian political elite is facing declining trust of citizens in politics, political actors and political processes in general that may result in the instability of the political system.

Conflict of interest is an extremely complex social, political and legal concept which has recently been gaining importance in numerous countries.

Opportunity for meaningful management of conflict of interests

Decision of the Constitutional Court regarding the Act on prevention of conflict of interest reflects GONG’s and civil society organizations gathered in the Platform 112 attitude, which states that the current law defines and addresses the issue of conflict of interests in completely the wrong way. With this decision the Constitutional Court opened the path for acquiring new and more adequate legal solutions, that would not only prevent and sanction conflict of interest, but it will be systematically identified and managed among officials, civil servants and all other political decision-makers at all levels and all aspects of Government.
