An Introduction to Public Affairs - Presenting the various actors, history, ethical standards and transparency register

The first course of the programme will take place on Friday, 1 June 2018, at FEB headquarters. It will start by charting the history of public affairs (asking where it is coming from and also where it is headed) and present the various actors (asking who is doing the lobbying and who is being lobbied). It will then go on to examine the rules governing this activity (transparency register, code of conduct, ethical standards and other constraints).

 

 

 

 

 

 

The course is open to all and is designed for anyone intent on making their voice more clearly heard. It will be the first in a future series of in-depth courses on public affairs organised by the Brussels School of Competition (BSC).
