Fighting corruption

The program initiative supports changes to laws on conflict of interest in the public sphere, advocates their adoption and public control over their implementation. We want to make government revenues and spending, as well as that of civil servants, as open as possible. We support the desire of the public to have free access to all public registers in order to more effectively fight conflict of interest and make government revenues and the personal incomes of government officials more controlled.

Investigative journalism

The program initiative supports investigative journalism agencies because they are the most effective tool civil society has in combating corruption and gaining open access to socially important information.
