Lobbyists, Governments and Public Trust, Volume 3

Implementing the OECD Principles for Transparency and Integrity in Lobbying

This report takes stock of progress made in implementing the 2010 Recommendation on Principles for Transparency and Integrity in Lobbying – the only international instrument addressing major risks in the public decision-making process related to lobbying. The review process found that although there is an emerging consensus on the need for transparency to shed light on lobbying, new regulations are often scandal-driven instead of forward looking.

In countries that have regulations in place, the degree of transparency in lobbying varies considerably across OECD members. Moving forward, it will be essential for countries to focus efforts on the implementation of the Recommendation, in order to strengthen confidence in the public decision-making process and restore trust in government. It will also be crucial to strengthen the implementation of the wider integrity framework, as it is the prime tool for safeguarding transparency and integrity in the decision-making process in general and lobbying practices in particular.

Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter analyses the regulation of lobbying in Hungary. It focuses, in particular, on the lessons learned from Act XLIX of 2006 on Lobbying Activities, which – as a result of its largely insufficient application – was repealed in 2011. It also describes the 2013 integrity management regulatory system introduced in place of the repealed Act.
