The Commonwealth Integrity Commission is an opportunity for once-in-a-generation nation building reform, but we must ensure it’s built on solid foundations.
Looking at ten key areas of social, political and economic life affected by covid-19 – from reduced checks and balances to the role of big tech.
POSITION PAPER: This position paper explains why Australia needs a strong national integrity commission and what it needs to be fit for purpose.
Australian aid should help our neighbours respond to covid. In every crisis, corruption thrives. We should keep good governance squarely in focus.
Even with the Covid-19 crisis understandably dominating the agenda, the ‘Sports Rorts’ scandal just won’t go away, and with good reason.
At the start of the covid-19 pandemic we raised concerns that emergency powers could be used to undermine accountability and wind back regulatory oversight.
This essential reform must be prioritised, as a well-functioning, clean, and accountable government is a fundamental pre-requisite for good policymaking.
TIA supports this bill, it is part of a much-needed package of pro-integrity reform.
The Government must not waste its historic opportunity to create a better form of politics and kick-start the Commonwealth Integrity Commission.
Any crisis brings an increased risk of corruption, bribery, fraud and integrity violations – COVID 19 is no different
