PACE SUPPORTS DEGEPOL’S INITIATIVE FOR A “INTERESSENBEAUFTRAGTER” at DEUTSCHER BUNDESTAG

P.A.C.E – Public Affairs Community of Europe – is pleased to support de|ge|pol’s initiative towards implementing a “Interessenbeauftragter” at Deutscher Bundestag – a new transparency initiative with the aim of appointing a Commissioner for the Representation of Interests at the German Bundestag.

PACE considers this initiative to be a landmark project to the discussion about transparency in interest representation and Lobbying in Germany.

PACE members expect it brings a new approach in discussing the heavily biased public debate. It might also showcase a shift of perception on how professional and transparent interest representation empowers political transparency.

The German initiative, as well as the public debate it already has stimulated, will be closely watched all over Europe.

All members of PACE support this initiative and wish de|ge|pol good luck in implementing the „Interessenbeauftragter“ at Deutscher Bundestag.

5th Annual PACE meeting | Vienna, Austria

5th Annual PACE meeting | Vienna, Austria

Transparency and regulation in lobbying: these are the topics that lobbyists’ national associations coming from all around Europe discussed in their fifth conference that took place in Vienna on May 7th and 8th, 2015. 

The meeting was promoted by the Public Affairs Community of Europe (P.A.C.E.), the only platform gathering national organizations of European public affairs professionals and lobbyists. The Austrian Public Affairs Association (OePAV) hosted this year’s meeting, which gathered representatives from national associations from 16 European countries, as well as speakers from the OECD, Transparency International, and Brussels-located organizations (SEAP, EPACA).

P.A.C.E. members actively spoke about the misbalanced criticism on lobbying while a political discussion about how a modern and open democracy works should be established. Furthermore, EU-member countries should take the European Joint Transparency Register as a blue-print for potential national lobbying-regulations and promote balanced guidelines for national regulations and good practices.
