The Institute for Politics and Society is organising a debate called "Evaluation of Governments Transparency and Anticorruption Laws." The debate will be held in Czech.
Corruption deprives the state and reduces public confidence in democracy. A fight against corruption will include defining a new party in the long term and civic initiatives.
What is the political landscape a year before parliamentary elections? Has the current government had success in fighting corruption? How have the newly adopted rules been operating? Do we need to only tune existing measures or are major changes needed? Which area of corruption should be addressed by the next government?
