05 Déc 2016 -Les Mafias en Belgique: cliché ou véritable présence ?

À l’occasion de la Journée Internationale contre la Corruption, Libera Bruxelles organise une table ronde publique sur le thème:

Les Mafias en Belgique: cliché ou véritable présence ?

On a tendance à relier le mot « mafia » uniquement à la zone géographique de l’Italie. Un cliché usé qui porte à occulter l’agissement des mafias sur le territoire belge.

Pour comprendre quelles sont les principales organisations mafieuses actives en Belgique, où et comment elles agissent, l’antenne belge de l’association italienne Libera. Associations, noms et chiffres contre les mafias a invité des experts pour tenir une table ronde à ce sujet.

Modérateur: Jozef De Witte, ancien directeur Unia, centre interfédéral pour  l’égalité des chances.

  • Bart Staes – Eurodéputé, membre de la précédente commission spéciale sur le crime organisé, la corruption et le blanchiment d’argent en Europe; auteur du dossier “La mafia des hormones”. Il présentera le contexte Européen en le reliant à la situation en Belgique ;
  • Ken Weckhuysen – Commissaire à la Police Fédérale en charge du service de lutte contre le crime organisé. Il décrira les caractéristiques principales des groupes criminelles plus actives et les actions mises en place pour les combattre;
  • Eric Bisschop – Procureur Fédérale Adjoint, section crime organisé, il nous informera sur la gestion du Parquet Fédéral, les points force et les contraintes;
  • Salvatore Di Rosa – Co-auteur – avec Raf Sauviller – du livre “Maffia” (2016). Il parlera de la présence des mafias Sud-italiennes en Belgique et dans le reste de l’Europe. Il proposera également la stratégie nécessaire à niveau européen pour lutter contre la criminalité mafieuse, qui dépasse les frontières;
  • Gudrun Vande Walle – Chercheur de l’Université d’Anvers, Depart. Droit, Equipe de recherche: Gouvernement et Droit. Elle parlera de “la criminalité organisé et  la criminalité des organisations: des marchés connectés”.

Suivra une session de questions / réponses ouverte à tous les présents.

La rencontre se tiendra en Français et Néerlandais avec traduction simultanée

The media as watchdog for transparency in healthcare


Date : 25/10/2016

Media plays a crucial role in exposing and holding those accountable who abuse their power for personal gain. Often, taking up this role is much easier said than done. Various stakeholders might exercise pressure on agents, such as journalists, impeding on their independence and subsequently, harming the quality of journalism.

Transparency International Belgium has the honour to invite three esteemed speakers from various backgrounds related to media and communications in the field of healthcare, to shed some light on the possible challenges they face in their daily work.

Reporting mainly on Health & Consumers, Sarantis Michalopoulos, will tell us more about his work as journalist for Euractiv. He will use a few cases to illustrate the temptations journalists have to resist in order to not betray their ethical principles.

Jean-Paul Marthoz, with his unrivalled track record in defending media freedom and pluralism, will share his views on this important topic as advisor to the Ethical Journalism Network (EJN) – the international network of media professionals whose aim is to advance education in and around the principles of ethical journalism.

Director of Communications at EFPIA (European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations), Andy Powrie-Smith will provide us with some insights from the industry addressing the issue of transparency and ethics.

Both NGOs, like Transparency International, and the media play a similar role as providers of reliable information and as creators of awareness. They act as watchdogs in the healthcare ecosystem aiming to reduce corruption and promote transparency, integrity and accountability. During our debate, we will try to answer important questions such as: the role of journalism and free media in preventing and/or making public cases of corruption in the healthcare ecosystem? Is the media subject to the pressures from various stakeholders, both internal and external? How does the industry tackle the issues of transparency and ethics when dealing with the media?

Speakers:

– Jean-Paul Marthoz, a Belgian journalist and longtime press freedom and human rights activist. He teaches international journalism at the Université catholique de Louvain and is a columnist for the Belgian daily Le Soir.

– Sarantis Michalopoulos, Journalist at EurActiv.com covering Health & Consumers

– Andy Powrie-Smith, Director of Communications at EFPIA (European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations)
