Speaker information

Diana Wallis, MEP, Vice-President of the European Parliament
Michael Shackleton, Head of the European Parliament Information Office
David Coen, UCL Political Science

Organised in conjunction with the UCL European Institute and the European Parliament Information Office in the UK.

The European Transparency Initiative led by the European Commission has offered one response to some of these questions; more recently a new Transparency Register will act as a common register for interest representatives in Europe, aiming to promote transparency with regard to interest groups and lobbyists.

Diana Wallis MEP, who has been instrumental in establishing the Transparency Register, will deliver a keynote presentation setting out the aims of the Register and discussing some of the problems that remain to be addressed with regard to transparency in the EU. Michael Shackleton (Head of the European Parliament Information Office in the UK) will provide a response, before a Q&A panel discussion.

The event will be chaired by Professor David Coen (UCL Political Science). Followed by a drinks reception.
