Are there rules to prevent ?

EU rules range from temporary lobbying bans to forbidding officials from taking private sector posts if there is a strong conflict of interest risk.
The problem is they are not always enforced properly.

So what needs to change?

The 🇪🇺 administration should become more aware of how certain actions are perceived. This can help reduce problematic cases.
This would benefit both the EU administration and the public.
