Amidst the current COVID-19 pandemic, democracies worldwide have been confronted not only with the sanitary and economic effects of the crisis, but also with serious challenges for democratic institutions. The crisis has disrupted the regular functioning of institutions, and therefore undermined the government’s effectiveness in the recovery. This led public servants to accelerate administrative processes related to the delivery of goods and services, has affected the balances in terms of accountability, transparency and access to information, in particular, the lobbying disclosure.
Considering the current development of the pandemic, with forthcoming new sanitary measures and the deployment of massive vaccination programs worldwide, the question of transparency and access to public information is relevant for social accountability. This webinar intends to explore how governmental institutions are already preparing (if they are) for the aftermath of the crisis, focusing on how they will confront the future to ensure transparent, accountable and responsive mechanisms, to restore confidence in their own democratic processes.
