Commodities and Corruption
October 18, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The commodity trading sector has historically been vulnerable to multiple forms of corruption, including bribery, mispricing, embezzlement, and trade-based money laundering. Today, these longstanding risks are compounded by the fragmentation of the global trading system in an era of rising populism, and by global shocks to commodity markets like climate change and the war in Ukraine.
As part of the Global Integrity Anti-Corruption Evidence (GI-ACE) Programme, an experienced team of anti-corruption researchers have analysed the emerging corruption risks surrounding global trade in food, energy and cryptocurrencies to identify opportunities for future research and policy intervention in a changing landscape of global trade. This panel will share their findings, and open a discussion on trade, corruption and commodities with researchers, academics, and key stakeholders in government and civil society.
The event will be held from 16.00 to 18.00 BST on October 18 at 18 Clerkenwell Green, London. The panel discussion will last from 16.00 -17.00, and will be followed by a reception with light refreshments from 17.00 – 18.00.
Please register early because seating is limited to 40 people.
