April 2019 (#244)



We thank everyone who attended, supported, and shared news of our conference last week.

Tackling Corruption Together brought together people dedicated to strengthening transparency and accountability across Australian business and government, and we thank everyone for the energising and constructive discussions.

The day covered a wide range of topics from the day-to-day work of investigators, to sharing insights in establishing a zero-tolerance approach to corruption in different sectors, to the challenges of doing business with integrity not only in Australia but also in countries like Cambodia and the Pacific islands.

We will capture the highlights from these conversations to share in a short report.

We also thank all those who attended, supported and engaged with our National Integrity Forum, conducted in partnership with Griffith University. This public-sector focused workshop drilled into the details of a draft report we launched last Thursday Governing for Integrity: a blueprint for reform.

In this draft report we present the architecture of a new system – one that goes beyond punishing corruption and fosters the highest level of integrity across our government and parliament.

We invite everyone to this conversation about how we can bring about the best of our democracy. Read the report and join the discussion here.

For those of you in Canberra, registrations are still open for our next National Integrity Forum, hosted in partnership with the Accountability Round Table and Griffith University next Monday
