Transparency in public realms: taking stock and the challenges from the viewpoint of civil society


December 13 OF 2016 from 07:30 PM to 09:00 PM

Corruption, one of the issues of greatest concern in Spain, has burst onto the country’s political agenda. To eradicate it, it is essential for transparency and good governance to become cornerstones in the management of public affairs. One year after the Transparency, Access to Information and Good Governance Act came into force and as a new parliamentary term gets under way, this is a good time to take stock and come up with new proposals. Is the Spain of today more transparent? Are its institutions responding to calls for greater transparency? What challenges face this new term of office?

The ESADE Alumni Public Management Club invites you to this session where we will examine these questions and more from the viewpoint of the civil society, the driving force in Spain today for demands for greater transparency from the powers that be.
