Valencia, September 8, 2021.- The VI edition of the International Transparency Congress will be held between September 27 and 29. In last year’s edition it had to be held only online due to the situation caused by the coronavirus crisis, but this year the organization has also wanted to promote the face-to-face modality so that it will be possible to participate in the congress in both modalities.
The VI International Congress on Transparency will serve as a space for the exchange of experiences and research related to the field of transparency, as well as related topics, such as accountability, public integrity, participation, regulation of lobbies and the fight against misinformation.
The Congress will be inaugurated by the president of the Generalitat Valenciana, Ximo Puig i Ferrer, the rector of the University of Alicante, Amparo Navarro Faure, and the president of the Council for Transparency and Good Governance of Spain, José Luis Rodríguez Álvarez.
It will consist of round tables, conferences and working groups.
Also within the framework of this congress, the VIII Meeting of the State Network of Anti-Fraud Agencies and Offices will be held, which will make an institutional statement as well as a workshop on the transposition of the European Directive for the Protection of Complainants as a key opportunity in our country for the creation of a national anti-corruption strategy.
The Congress already has more than 600 registered people from more than 21 countries (Spain, Mexico, Brazil, among others). The registration period will be open until September 20 and this can be done through the event website. In the CIT 2021, more than 180 papers will also be presented in 22 working groups that will address important issues, such as transparent language, public procurement and the evaluation of transparency, among other topics.
