Speaker information

Diana Wallis, MEP, Vice-President of the European Parliament
Professor Tony Wright, UCL Political Science

Organised in conjunction with UCL Public Policy and the European Parliament Information Office in the UK. Transparency in the EU has been of increasing interest in recent years, with questions raised about the accountability of EU institutions, the influence of lobbyists, the distribution and purpose of Community funding, and the code of conduct within European institutions. In light of the UK's continuted debate over Europe, with a notable Eurosceptic voice among citizens and Government, these questions of transparency are increasingly important as issues of democracy and accountability in the EU are fiercely debated and the Union faces some of its toughest challenges as a result of the global financial crisis.
