THE GOALS OF THE ALLIANCE

.

The vision of the Alliance: LATVIA IS A TRANSPARENT STATE.

.

Where there is responsible transparency, there is considerably less corruption, fraud, shadow economy, cartels, etc.

.

The Alliance aims to:

.

– Achieve a statistically significant increase in negative public attitudes toward corruption, positive attitudes toward whistleblowing, as well as personal readiness to raise an alarm – blow a whistle.

– Improve the performance of the Latvian Corruption Perception Index (Transparency International Corruption Perception Index, or the Corruption Perception Index): to reach at least 70 points by 2023. Since 2014, Latvia’s score has grown by only 3 points – 58 points in 2018.

.

THE ALLIANCE’S ACTIVITIES

.

The tasks of the Alliance are based on three pillars:

.

1. Anti-corruption education: Informing and educating, raising public awareness of corruption and whistleblowing.

2. Whistleblowing promotion: Company and employee education on internal whistleblowing mechanisms and support for their implementation and maintenance. Informing the public about whistleblowing options, encouragement to raise the alarm – urging people not to remain silent about irregularities that they may notice.

3. Introduction of the principle of transparency: Develop the principle of transparency and promote its implementation in state and local governmental institutions, enterprises and people’s everyday life.

.

In order to fulfil these tasks, the Alliance:

.

– Organises various educational events (seminars, discussions, etc.) for young people and adults as well as for enterprises;

– Organises conferences, discussions, public debates, workshops;

– Communicates with the public via social networks, sends out newsletters, publishes information on websites, as well as using the media;

– Analyses public opinion on corruption and whistleblowing;

– Analyses laws and proposes new laws or changes;

– Promotes whistleblowers’ identity protection drawing on Delna’s experience. This is especially important in cases where the whistleblower does not feel safe to go to another competent body.

.

The Alliance actively engages supporters and partners as much as possible in its activities. The Alliance maintains ongoing close communication and cooperation with its partners, regularly informing them of progress, meeting in a broader forum to discuss achievements and planned activities, inviting them to participate in the Alliance’s projects with advice and work, as well as forming an advisory board of partners and supporters.

.
