70 percent of EU citizens believe the EU institutions to be corrupt. In fact, with no mandatory lobby register in the EU, financial and corporate lobbyists have unregulated access to influence EU decision-makers.
Democracy International calls for a new transparency law that introduces a mandatory lobby transparency register. Democracy International is invested in defining what such transparency rules ought to look like, how the influence of lobbying can become more transparent to citizens, and how conflict of interest of public officials can be controlled.
