undermines democracy and the rule of law,
leads to violations of human rights, distorts
markets, erodes the quality of life and allows
organized crime, terrorism and other threats to
human security to flourish.”*

6
CODES OF CONDUCT

 A moral obstacle
 Parliament may opt to impose penalties (moral,
financial, procedural etc.)
 Different codes for different roles
 Members of Parliament (e.g. ethical code)
 Parliamentary professionals (e.g. researcher code)
7
SUGGESTIONS
 MPs: Be part of regional & international
networks
 Parliament: Start developing a CoC

corruption and can act as a wider moral
compass
 Can be jointly developed with international &
civil society organizations
 Needs to be aligned with domestic and
customary practices
