Our relations with Institutions
- Central national institutions: Parliament, Government, Ministries, Public Administration;
- local institutions: Regions, Provinces, Municipalities, Metropolitan Cities, Mountain Communities and their representative associations.
- the Italian Communications Authority (AGCOM), the Italian Competition and Market Authority (AGCM) and the Italian Data Protection Authority;
- Consumers Associations;
- European and international institutions: the European Commission and its regulation committees, the Council and the European Parliament, BEREC (Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communication), the OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development);
- the United Nations (UN): particularly the Global Compact, UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change), ITU (International Telecommunication Union) and the other UN agencies (e.g. UNHCR)
Transparency in the relations between the public and private sectors is a key element for modern society to work properly: pressure groups that focus on the institutions in the interests of single issues are a democratic resource if they act in the general interest, but must not become a source of privilege
Transparency International has measured the health of
democracy in 176 countries of the world, applying the 10 principles of
integrity drawn up by the OECD. This is the result: 69% of the countries analysed
in the Corruption Perceptions Index calculated for the public and
political sector in 2016,
achieved a score of less than 50 on a scale from 0 (very corrupt) to 100 (not
corrupt in any way).
Since 2012, the year the Severino Law was approved, Italy has risen 12 places, from 72nd to its current 60th: this is assuredly a great improvement, but too much still remains to be done to be satisfied.
