On Friday, 18 January 2019, Prof. Thomas Conzelmann presents key results from the PROM research projects at a conference by the OECD.
The conference is organised as seminar where participants engage with the peer review procedure in the Economic and Development Review Committee of the OECD. The goal of the seminar is not only to inform about the peer review in the OECD but to also show best practices of peer review mechanisms in international organizations. In fact, the WTO, the United Nations or the Council of Europe make use of peer mechanisms to uphold fruitful communication or as tool to address various issues through peer pressure.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn from the conclusions of the Peer Review Observatory Maastricht: What precisely gives a peer review de facto authority and why would member states listen to peer advice? These and other questions will be adressed in an open discussion at the EDRC symposium.
The event is one good example how the PROM project contributes to the practical assessment of peer review mechanisms worldwide.
