- Presentation of the Government Defence Anti-Corruption Index (GI)
The Flemish Peace Institute organises in cooperation with Transparency International the presentation of the Government Defence Anti-Corruption Index (GI). The GI assesses the existence and effectiveness of institutional and informal controls to manage the risk of corruption in defence and security institutions and of their enforcement. The 2015 NATO report publishes the country risk rankings derived from the gathered data and examines the trends across member and partner states of NATO.
The seminar takes place in the Flemish Parliament, Room Jan Van Eyck, entrance and reception desk at Leuvenseweg 27 1000 Brussels.
