Unlocking corruption: Frontline perspectives on locally-led solutions
December 8, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
Corruption persists because it suits the interests of powerful players, and because anti-corruption initiatives often fail to unlock the political-economy drivers that hold corruption in place.
Join the conversation! This session will focus on the value, and limits, of locally-led approaches to unlocking the complex challenge of corruption. The speakers will draw the first-hand experience of civil society and government representatives from around the world. This is a hybrid event held online, with the option to attend at OGH (with refreshments).
We will do this by facilitating a conversation about countries’ policy journeys, the implementation and impact of policy commitments, the value of external assistance, and the role that Global Summits can play in advancing effective and locally-led approaches to tackling corruption.
Our hope is that such conversations – which put the first-hand experience of people on the front lines of the fight against corruption center stage – will increasingly inform policy commitments and investments to address corruption, so that they contribute to effective anti-corruption initiatives, with strong local leadership.
