Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will discuss how contracts, registration data, regulatory filings and beneficial ownership data can help change the incentives and feedback loops inherenet in the current systems that enable corruption. The UK will start releasing beneficial ownership data from June, making it the first dataset of it’s kind. The transparency and business community has lobbied hard to see this data being collected and published publicly - as open data. The question we will discuss in this session is - was it worth it? The participants will also get a chance to get a sneak peek into the Global beneficial ownership register project by OpenCorporates, Global Witness, Open Contracting Partnership, The B Team, The Web Foundation, and Transparency International.
