PROFILE OF THE FAIR-PLAY ALLIANCE

The goal of our organisation is to push for ethical, transparent, professional and effective public administration and polical representation. We use two main tools for it:

  1. increasing transparency of public affairs
  2. monitoring and investigation that lead to public disclosure and systematic change.

Increasing transparency of public affairs

We built a unique database of all flows of public money to private hands (state subsides, privatisation, tax and custom remissions, grants, european funds, debtors to the public sector….) and lists of public representatives (managements of state institutions, governments, elected positions, judiciary, self-governments, parliament, advisors to political leaders…). This database is freely accessible and searchable on our website. It provides media and NGOs with tools for monitoring and makes public administration realise that their decisions are easy to monitor. This database helped media to disclose couple of important cases that lead to extensive public pressure on political represenation.

Monitoring and investigation that lead to public disclosure and systematic change

Based on our analysis we investigate cases of unethical or illicit political practices, we disclose them in media and lobby for systematic changes in written rules that should prevent these practices from happening again. We provide media with 2 – 3 important case studies a year, we serve as an important consultant for journalists and as an independent arbiter. E.g. Thanks to our findings, media were able to point out couple of concrete cases of illicit practices regarding political party finance (false donors of Prime-minister`s party, non-transparent party loans…). The public debate on party finance started to be concrete and long-term based and managed to create pressure on politicians. We drafted necessary party finance reform, took part in its preparation as a member of a working group within the Ministry of Interior and the law was later passed by parliament.
