Global Contribution to Governance Culture

Our Chairman of Trustees, Dr. Yılmaz Argüden was elected as the Head of the Governance Committee in the OECD in February 2022, and 2022 priorities were set to improve the quality of the value created by the Governance Committee.

Global Contribution to Governance Culture

1 February 2022

According to these priorities;

  • It is important to develop business priorities regarding good governance and regulatory policies. In communicating these priorities to the OECD and member governments, it is necessary to broaden and strengthen the membership of the Governance Committee.
  • For a more effective and efficient utilization of resources, decision-making processes should be more participatory, integrated and data-driven. In this way, it can pave the way for economic growth and prosperity. To achieve this goal, it is important that governments consult the private sector as a key stakeholder and focus on implementation, monitoring and evaluation processes. Therefore, the OECD Governance Committee will support the adoption of appropriate RIAs, final assessments, regulatory oversight and international regulatory cooperation as critical pillars of regulatory quality.
  • The “OECD Recommendation on Agile Regulatory Governance to Harness Innovation” should be supported and encouraged. The pace, scope and complexity of innovation poses interrelated regulatory challenges for governments in four broad categories:
    • Feed rate issue
    • Designing relevant regulatory frameworks
    • Regulatory enforcement challenges
    • Cross-border challenges

Therefore, the OECD Governance Committee will support “Agile Regulatory Management” to prioritize solving the most pressing social and environmental challenges, while innovation drives growth.

The Governance Committee focuses on the Public Administration Ministerial Meeting to be held on November 18 with the theme of “Reinforcing Democracy”. The meeting will be shaped around three priorities:

  • Information in the Digital Age (including combating misinformation)
  • Participation and Representation
  • The Capacity of Governments to Address Global Challenges

These three priorities will be addressed in two horizontal themes:

  • Climate and democracy
  • Digitization and democracy

In order for the Public Administration Ministerial Meeting to create more effective value, importance is given to the quality and diversity of participation. This meeting is therefore scheduled for the day after the OECD Global Forum on 17 November. The meeting is aimed at a multi-stakeholder dialogue, including civil society, the private sector and the wider OECD community. After the meeting, outputs on the following subjects are aimed:

  • Trust government survey report
  • Action Plan on Mis/Dis information
  • Representation and Participation Action Plan
  • Managing Green Action Plan
  • Public Institution Officer Scoping Document
  • Scope the paper/background paper on Digital Democracy
  • High Level Political Commitment
