Film recording: Transparency and Lobbying
Transparency in the EU has been of increasing interest in recent years, with questions raised about the accountability of EU institutions, the influence of lobbyists, the distribution and purpose of Community funding, and the code of conduct within European institutions.
Diana Wallis MEP, who has been instrumental in establishing the Transparency Register, delivered a keynote presentation setting out the aims of the Register and discussing some of the problems that remain to be addressed with regard to transparency in the EU. Michael Shackleton (Head of the European Parliament Information Office in the UK) provided a response, before a Q&A panel discussion. The event was chaired by Professor David Coen (UCL Political Science).
