Please join us for the launch of a landmark report outlining what needs to be done to strengthen Australian democracy – including a national integrity commission, greater protection for whistleblowers and press freedom.
30th November, 12.00 – 1.00pm
TIA has been proud to be a lead partner in this Australian Research Council-funded assessment, and its comprehensive report findings. It outlines 10 actions in five focus areas for Australia’s governments and wider community to lift Australia’s performance in public sector corruption control.
The five focus areas are:
– Build and implement a comprehensive national integrity plan
– Establish a strong national integrity commission
– Ensure trustworthy decision-making
– Safeguard fair and honest democracy, and
– Protect public interest whistleblowing.
The webinar launch will include opening comments by Chief Political Correspondent Ms Karen Middleton of The Saturday Paper, and a briefing from the lead author of the report Professor A. J. Brown, Griffith University. This will be followed by an expert panel discussion moderated by TIA CEO Ms Serena Lillywhite. Panellists include QLD Crime and Corruption Commission Chairman Mr Alan MacSporran QC and President of the Law Council of Australia, Ms Pauline Wright.
