Outcome of the latest GRECO Plenary Meeting (19-23 March 2007, Strasbourg)

19-23 March 2007, Strasbourg

GRECO adopted its Seventh General Activity Report (2006) – including a chapter on “the protection of whistleblowers”, which represents an important tool for combating corruption in public administration. The section also addresses a number of issues for Member States who are seeking to create a whistleblowing culture.

For the second part of the meeting devoted to a Start-up training seminar on the transparency of party funding (Theme II of GRECO’s Third Evaluation Round), GRECO’s representatives were joined by their national Evaluators nominated in the framework of the Third Evaluation Round. The enlarged audience (more than 100 participants) heard presentations from international experts specialised in this field, focusing on transparency, supervision and sanctions. The conclusions of the workshop will provide valuable guidance to evaluators and to GRECO, in particular in view of the first wave of Third Round on-site visits to be organised during June/July (Finland, Slovakia, Slovenia and the United Kingdom).
