Never have questions of honesty and integrity in Australia’s national government been more important. This seminar reviews proposals for what should be involved in any new federal anti-corruption reforms. Analysis will be drawn from the current Australian Research Council-funded National Integrity System Assessment of Australia, and new public attitude research conducted through Transparency International’s Global Corruption Barometer survey, which was recently piloted in Australia.

The results offer new insights into how corruption perceptions and experience can be measured around the world, their relationship with trust and confidence, and their meaning for currently proposed reforms.

A J Brown is Professor of Public Policy and Law in the Centre for Governance and Public Policy, Griffith University; a board member of Transparency International and Transparency International Australia; former senior investigation officer for the Commonwealth Ombudsman; former Associate to Justice G E Tony Fitzgerald AC, Queensland Court of Appeal; Member of the Commonwealth Government’s Ministerial Expert Advisory Panel on Whistleblowing; and a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Law.

This seminar is jointly hosted by the Transnational Research Institute on Corruption and the Development Policy Centre.
