VIDEO: EXPERT FORUM AND ROUNDTABLE – HOW TO INCREASE TRUST IN PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS IN LATVIA

Transparency International Latvia and the United States Embassy in Latvia invite to participate in an international online expert forum and roundtable discussion “How to  Increase Trust in Public Institutions in Latvia”. The event will took place on September 10, 2021 at 14.00–16.30 (EET)..  The event is in Latvian with simultaneous interpretation into English.

EXPERT FORUM

DISCUSSION

 

This expert forum and roundtable is the third in a series concerning GRECO recommendations and Latvia’s progress in combatting corruption and advancing transparency.  The aim of this event is to increase awareness and better understand why public trust in public institutions matters, the drivers of distrust, and what can be done to increase a public trust. The lack of trust, especially in government institutions, makes finding and implementing solutions to our communities’ greatest challenges – like national security, economic growth, and COVID-19 responses— even harder.

The event will convene Members of the 13th Saeima (Latvian Parliament), representatives of civil society, subject-matter experts from Latvia and abroad, and the public to debate and propose recommendations on increasing public trust in Latvia. During the public discussion we will cover the COVID-19 management in Latvia and erroneous actions of the Latvian government in the pandemic. We will discuss the impact of this pandemic on public trust in public institutions and mention long-standing democracy problems in Latvia.

This event is open to the public.

Agenda of the event.

 

The event is supported by the United States Embassy in Latvia and Transparency Fund.
