What is our understanding of conflict of interest?

Conflict of interest is an extremely complex social, political and legal concept which has recently been gaining importance in numerous countries. The number of public functions encompassed by conflict of interest management policies is increasing as well as the number of instruments used and the density of regulation. General public is becoming more interested in this topic and there are several reasons for those trends.

Trust is good, control is better

What kind of "engineering" of anti-corruption activism do we need, if any? How to expand the circle of actors and policies? How to strengthen the citizen-CSO's-institutions relationship? How to ensure autonomous, professional and engaged action of the media? How to encourage professional associations and trade unions, and what to do with activism on the local level? What is going on with public financing of the media and what happened with the protection of whistle-blowers? Participants of the thematic discussion  "CSO's, anti-corruption activism and cooperation with institutions" held at the conference "Right to Good Administration in Croatian Practice" organised by GONG, attempted to find answers to these open questions.

Citizens caught in a trap of the transparency surrogate

Budget openness (transparency) provides a possibility for citizens to access  complete, relevant, accurate, timely and comprehensible information on budgets of state institutions, which rightfully belong to citizens to use - it has been pointed out during a thematic discussion "Transparency of the budgetary and public procurement process" at the conference "Right to Good Administration  in Croatian Practice" organized by GONG.

Managing agencies - without legislative wrong-doing and political pressures

In Croatia, agencies, councils, committees and similar entities appear like mushrooms after rain. Given the fact that their existence is accompanied closely by politicization, clientelism and low efficiency while communication with the public is not their strong side, the citizens wonder if there is another purpose to them apart of providing "sinecure" to the favoured ones. On the other hand, the "agencyfication" phenomenon  is present in many other countries and the existence of these bodies is not meaningless if they are professional and out of reach of political control - it was concluded at the thematic discussion "Good Governance in Public Agencies" held at the conference "Right to Good Administration in Croatian Practice", organized by GONG.

Good governance, the glue of democracy

Citizens have the right to good administration, working for the goal of maximising common good, and not particular interests of politicians alienated from citizens. The only meaningful solution for finding a way out of this situation is the cooperation of the entire society and good governance as the  glue without which there is no democracy - it was pointed out at the opening session at the conference "Right to Good Administration in Croatian Practice", organized by GONG, whose Research Centre presented the results of the Index of Good Governance in Croatia (DUH Index).
