Annual T.M.C. Asser Lecture 2016

On 8 December 2016, Onora O'Neill (University of Cambridge/House of Lords, UK) delivered the Second T.M.C. Asser Lecture on "Accountable Institutions, Trustworthy Cultures" at the Gotische Zaal in The Hague. 

In her speech, O’Neill focused on the need to include culture when seeking to develop further accountability mechanisms and trustworthiness. While noting the need for law, she highlighted that law in and of itself may be insufficient to address problems of accountability and trust and that further laws and regulations may rather prove to be regressive in promoting trust. The lecture was followed by a lively debate, focusing on key points raised in the lecture.

The speech by Onora O’Neill is now published as a book. Download the text of the Second Annual T.M.C. Asser Lecture.
