Conflicts of Interest Toolkit
As we grapple with numerous conflicts of interest situations in public life the Corruption and Governance Programme at the Institute for Security Studies has compiled a Conflicts of Interest Toolkit.
The toolkit is designed to provide journalists and researchers with a quick introduction to conflicts of interests and South Africa`s regulatory system.
It also introduces Who Owns What? – an online database of Politicians` Assets and Interests, the database contains approximately 9000 financial disclosure records submitted between 2004 and 2010 by elected members in the National Assembly, National Cabinet, nine provincial legislatures and metropolitan councils. The database has been updated with the latest disclosure forms from these institutions, including the Presidency. It has also been extended to include the latest financial disclosure records of elected local councillors from municipalities across South Africa.
