WATCHDOGS AND WHISTLEBLOWERS
Integrity and openness are necessary for public faith in decision makers and our public institutions. Anti-corruption legislation, institutional governance, ethics and conflicts of interest all play a role in shaping open and transparent governments of high integrity.
Improvements to public access to government, controls on special interest groups and professional lobbyists, planning and electoral reforms, a new MP Code of Conduct and a Judicial Conduct Commissioner, a strong ICAC and more visibility around political donations all help make a more open, transparent and accountable government.
A number of reforms and new legislation are on the way to help prevent the conditions which predispose corruption. It is important for legal practitioners and influencers to keep abreast of these measures.
