Twenty participants representing parliamentary self-regulatory bodies, national parliaments and external oversight bodies from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia and Republic of Moldova exchanged opinions with the Council of Europe experts at a regional workshop on the code of conduct as an anti-corruption instrument and as a tool to promote good conduct among the Members of Parliament.

The participants discussed the specificities of rules of conduct for elected officials, the current practices in Europe and internationally in regulating issues such as conflicts of interest, gifts and lobbying, and possible oversight models over the conduct of parliamentarians.

Subsequent to the regional workshop, the participants will be provided with a toolkit to support the efforts in drafting Code of Conduct for the Members of Parliament, including reference material on good practices and examples on management of conflict of interest.

The regional workshop was organized within the EU/CoE Partnership for Good Governance II Regional Project “Strengthening measures to prevent and combat economic crime” (2019-2021).
