The LGBT+ community: Easy Prey for Extortionists?
This session will be an interactive workshop starting with a brief overview of the historical prevalence of bribery targeted at LGBT+ citizens. From there, we will take an in-depth look at the situation in Nigeria to talk about how homophobic private citizens are using gay hook-up apps to lure gay men into meetings at which they face extortion, forced outing and physical violence, thus addressing this issue through a business lens. The last part of the session will be use to find solutions and approaches to the challenges identified.

Bribery by state agents and private citizens continues to make LGBT+ people vulnerable in many places around the world. Wherever LGBT+ lives are criminalised or LGBT+ human rights are violated, we see an increased prevalence of bribery and corruption targeted at LGBT+ individuals. This creates a precarious situation for all LGBT+ people living in such societies, effectively denying them full citizenship. It also restricts the development of civil society space, and impacts negatively on business.

Film Festival Screening: Crime & Punishment
Trailer
111 mins. 2018

Crime + Punishment goes back stage at the US’s' most powerful police department through the brave efforts of a black and latino active duty officers, labelled the NYPD12. Risking their careers and safety, they bring to light the pressure they are under to meet now-illegal “numbers” quotas. Officers are expected to target vulnerable minority communities, arresting young people on low-level charges, mainly later dismissed, making more than $900 million of the department’s annual budget on associated fines and fees.

Post-show speakers: Edwin Raymond is one of the NYPD 12 and features prominently in the film. His decision to join the NYPD was motivated by a desire to "help fix many of the issues and perceptions of the cops" and remains committed to exposing corruption and hypocrisy in what he sees to be an "inherently racist" force. Director Stephen Maing is an Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaker and visual journalist based in Brooklyn, NY. We will hear about the ongoing NYPD12 and how the film can be used to support whistleblowers and those seeking to expose injustice from the inside.

Trust - a Nordic Currency
The Nordic countries, and not least Denmark, have been heralded as uniquely trust based communities. It is generally perceived that a high degree of trust, and an implicit understanding among the citizens that the interests of the community come before personal interests, have contributed to the generally low levels of corruption in the Nordics. In Denmark references to “trust” and “culture” has been used to dismiss calls for whistleblower protection, and generally low political investment and interest in the anti-corruption agenda. In other countries, such as Norway, a string of serious corruption cases has proven that the Nordic trust may be a weak currency faced with the challenges of corruption. In order to maintain the many benefits of a trust-based society, the challenge is to strike the right balance between informality and a more disciplined and legalistic approach to corruption.

Anti-Corruption & Business Integrity: How to Increase the Impact of Separate Initiatives into Coordinated Collective Action
Many collective action initiatives and fora on anti-corruption involving business have been initiated over the last 15 to 20 years at global level providing an important space for exchange on good practice and joint commitments on anti-corruption. This has led to an unprecedented prominence of anti-corruption on the global agenda and contributed to the development of important global frameworks such as the UN Global Compact’s 10th Principle on Anti-Corruption, the UN Convention Against Corruption or the OECD Foreign Bribery Convention. In addition, smaller collective action initiatives have developed influential standards such as Transparency International’s Business Principles for Countering Bribery or worked on sector-specific solutions.
 
While a lot has been achieved through collective action initiatives on local and global level over the past decade, significant cases of business failure to tackle corruption keep making headlines. This has prompted the notion that after an important phase of developing anti-corruption codes and guidance, the time for action has come. Concurrently, the Sustainable Development Goals, and SDG 16 in particular, provide a global framework and a clear societal expectation towards business to turn commitments into action by 2030.
 
How can global collective action initiatives address this need and become a catalyst for concrete impact on the ground?

Corruption, Conflict and Development: Delivering Development Results in High-Corruption Risk Environments
A growing number of countries falls today under the definition of fragile or in conflict. To develop and implement policies aimed at promoting peace, stability and inclusive growth is a challenge because of the volatile and complex political conditions on the ground. This challenge is further exacerbated by the lack of transparency and accountability policy-makers and donor practitioners face in these countries and by the frequent abuse of power. The limited success in supporting inclusive growth and accountable institutions in countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, Haiti, Sierra Leone and CAR is a sobering reminder of the urgency of this challenge and of our collective vulnerability when it comes to address corruption in these contexts, and more broadly to establish the foundations for inclusive growth and development.

The proposed high-level panel will bring together the experience of policy makers and development practitioners to highlight some of the initial lessons that are emerging and to emphasize the areas where our collective response is needed to push this agenda forward. Some lessons are emerging: (i) the importance to understand the context and have a long-term vision; (ii) the (often greatly underestimated) risk associated with the existing corruption networks; (iii) the limited understanding of how corruption networks operate in these contexts; (iv) the critical role of accountability and rule of law systems and the biased toward reconstruction of physical infrastructure rather than of governance systems; (v) the need to focus on building capacity and skills within the government systems on the ground. All these risks undermine stability and the peace process. The proposed high-level panel will be complemented by technical panels and practitioners’ discussions that will zoom in on specific dimensions of the challenge to address corruption in fragile environments.

Fighting Corruption in “Post-Truth” America: What Have We Learned, What Are We Doing About It?
This panel addresses the new (and not so new) corruption challenges America is facing as well as new responses to fighting corruption in the US beyond the traditional toolbox.  Bringing together leading anti-corruption leaders working at state and federal levels, from conservative, nonpartisan, and progressive points of view, we will debate:

1) What does Trumpian politics or the rise of Bernie Sanders “Our Revolution” movement tell us about how        Americans are experiencing corruption in their daily lives?
2) How are American anti-corruption activists re-assessing the current corruption challenges in the US?
3) How well is the traditional evidence-based advocacy toolkit working and what else is needed?
4) What are the most promising new approaches to tackling corruption in America?

The panel brings new and powerful voices to the IACC. Speaking will be Renaldo Pearson, a leader of the Democracy Spring movement, whose 7 Deadly Sins of American Democracy speech at the Unrig the System Summit became a touchstone of thousands of anticorruption and pro-democracy activists around the country. Danielle Brian, leader of one of the most influential nonpartisan federal corruption NGOs in the country, POGO, will be speaking, focusing on their latest efforts to engage Americans across party lines on contemporary corruption issues. Nora Gilbert, director for strategic projects and partnerships of Represent.Us, which is awakening a powerful anticorruption movement targeting state-level corruption across the US will be speaking. And Pablo E. Carrillo, will be speaking. Pablo served as Chief of Staff to US Senator John McCain and was responsible for the development and implementation of the Senator's legislative and congressional oversight strategy. Pablo led investigative counsel on some of the most high-profile Senate investigations into federal corruption such as the Jack Abramoff Tribal lobbying scandal and the Boeing tanker scandal. He also serves as a Board Director of R Street.Sarah Chayes, author of Thieves of State: Why Corruption Threatens Global Security, will share some of her latest thinking on how American corruption fits into the global phenomenon of transnational kleptocractic networks.

How to Counter the Backlash Against Transparency in the Age of Fake News & Data Breaches
With fears around facebook’s data scandal and fake news, many transparency campaigners are facing a tough backlash from politicians and the general public. This is especially concerning because they believe transparency and privacy are mutually exclusive. This misperception presents the transparency and open data space with an alarming challenge. We want to host a community brainstorm on the most powerful arguments to counter this belief and crowdsource the most impactful case studies from the IACC community.

Screening Hidden Beneficial Owners to Combat Corruption in Oil, Gas and Mining
Experience has shown that the extractive industries are particularly prone to corruption, given the large revenues and associated risks. Developing countries lose significant economic resources each year as a result of corrupt or illegal deals involving anonymous companies. A recent review of over 100 oil, gas and mining corruption cases found that over half involved companies with problematic hidden beneficial owners.

In this session, the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI) and Transparency International’s global Mining for Sustainable Development (M4SD) Programme join forces to present the latest research and tools on uncovering and tackling corruption risks using beneficial ownership disclosures and screening mechanisms.

You’ll also hear from practitioners in industry, government and civil society, who will talk about their approaches and experiences using beneficial ownership data - why they use it, how they use it, and what they think needs to change for such information to contribute to more effective anti-corruption efforts.
There will be plenty of time for discussion and to share experiences, lessons and advice in this hands-on and dynamic workshop as we build a more complete picture of how to tackle problematic hidden extractive company ownership and combat corruption in this major industry.

EITI sets the global standard for the good governance of oil, gas and mineral resources. 51 countries have signed up to implement the EITI Standard. By 2020, extractives companies applying for or holding licenses and contracts in EITI countries must disclose their beneficial owners.

NRGI provides technical advice, applied research, policy analysis, and capacity development to innovative agents of change within government, civil society, the media, the private sector, and international institutions to promote accountable and effective governance in the extractive industries.

Transparency International’s global M4SD Programme uses evidence-based dialogue and engagement with key stakeholders to enhance transparency and accountability in decisions to grant mining licences and contracts. The programme is implemented by local partners in twenty countries in Africa, the Asia Pacific and the Americas.

The Iceberg and the Canary: How Wildlife Crime Corrupts - from Human Rights to the Ecosystem
We are in the midst of a global poaching crisis. Environmental crime, of which wildlife crime is part, is the world's fourth-largest crime sector. Wildlife crime is a development issue; it undermines the rule of law, threatens peace and security, aggravates human rights violations and is facilitated by corruption. It depletes the natural wealth of many poor countries, puts at risk the livelihoods and human rights of local communities. It attracts organised crime and feeds illicit financial transfers. It relies heavily on cross-border trafficking and therefore depends on and stimulates corruption. It implicates the responsibilities of States but frequently evades their jurisdiction. Globally, it endangers an ecosystem, already destabilised by mass production and global consumption patterns, on which all life depends including humans. For these reasons, it is critical for our future to track and control it both locally and internationally. It is at once the iceberg and the canary.

Why Youth Matters: Young People in the Fight Against Corruption
3.1 billion people around the globe are younger than 25 years. About 90 percent of them live in the global south ─ often representing the absolute majority of the population. With the 2030 Agenda, the world community has committed itself to realize the rights of children in all sectors and to address the key issues of young people. Corruption in particular threatens the development of young people in education and employment. At the same time, young people are agents of change. They are more open to social transformation, they use modern ways of communication, and they engage in social entrepreneurship.
This workshop discusses what drives young people today, what they think, and how they learn. Panellists come from different groups of society that have an impact on the development of young people.

Anti-Corruption Contribution to Accellerate Progress on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
Corruption is a major development challenge. It impacts all five pillars of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – people, prosperity, planet, peace, and partnerships. It is a significant bottleneck to achieving sustainable development in all its three dimensions – economic, social, and environmental.
Every year the developing world loses more than US$1 trillion in illicit outflows[1] through government corruption, criminal activity, commercial tax evasion and mispriced commercial transactions. Many forms of illicit financial flows (IFFs) divert resources away from development efforts. These resources could otherwise be used to ensure that everyone has equal access to basic services like education and health, with dignity and without engaging in corruption.
Anti-corruption efforts, including the timely return of stolen assets, can significantly contribute to accelerating progress on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In particular, SDG 16 and its targets on reducing corruption, developing effective, accountable and transparent institutions, ensuring responsive, inclusive, participatory and representative decision making, and strengthening access to information are not only valuable and important aspiration in their own right, they are also important conditions for a successful achievement of the entire sustainable development agenda.  Moreover, the United Nations Conventions against Corruption (UNCAC), with its 186 parties (as of 26 June 2018) is the only legally binding universal anti-corruption instrument. The effective implementation of its comprehensive provisions can make an important contribution to the 2030 Agenda.
This high-level session has the main objective of sharing experiences, good practices, and challenges in terms of building synergies between anti-corruption and asset recovery efforts and the implementation of 2030 Agenda.
The panel will be comprised of representatives from governments, UN agencies and other international organisations, the private sector, and civil society. The facilitated discussion will give participants the opportunity to contribute and discuss on a range of issues:
What are the challenges regarding implementing Goal 16 and its anti-corruption targets? What are the linkages between development financing on one hand and, fighting corruption, preventing illicit financial flows and asset recovery on the other? How can the implementation of UNCAC contribute to accelerating progress in achieving the SDGs? and What are the different roles of the public sector, the private sector, civil society, and international organisations for effectively integrating anti-corruption efforts in the SDG implementation?
The facilitated discussion will provide insights into the way forward for key stakeholders: public sector, private sector, civil society, and international actors, and into how each of them can contribute to anti-corruption efforts (e.g. mainstreaming, measuring, monitoring) and how they can support and build synergies with each other, so as to address the issues of corruption and asset recovery more comprehensively and accelerate progress on the SDGs.

Busting the Silos: Combating Corruption with an Effective Alliance
Stemming illicit financial flows (IFFs) is key to achieving sustainable development. This requires serious efforts to combat financial crimes that emanate from criminal activities like tax evasion and corruption. Unless there is an effective response, these IFFs undermine domestic mobilisation efforts in a country and hence are an impediment to the sustainable development goals. This is particularly harmful to the developing countries, where IFFs divert resources that could otherwise be invested in long-term development.

But law enforcement structures in place to combat financial crimes have not evolved at the same speed to keep pace with highly sophisticated criminal activities like tax evasion and corruption. Modern technology is enabling criminals to covertly move substantial sums between multiple jurisdictions with relative ease and great speed. Layers of offshore opaque asset ownership chains can obscure and frustrate the efforts of law enforcement, as can emerging technology like crypto-assets.

Anti-corruption authorities cannot combat this alone. As crimes cross agencies’ mandates, more integrated models of co-operation between agencies need to be developed. An effective Whole of Government approach is the key to meet these challenges, with anti-corruption agencies, tax authorities, customs, police, prosecutors, anti-money laundering agencies and regulators working effectively and on the same side. Each of these must not only discharge their immediate obligations with integrity, but have a mandate and the resources to fight financial crime more broadly.

Neither can individual countries combat this alone. As crimes cross international borders, countries need to co-operate to share intelligence and information. In a globalised economy, criminals will have an advantage over law enforcement by quickly moving beyond national borders, unless countries are working together to level the playing field. For example, transparency and international exchange of information on beneficial ownership is critical to preventing and exposing corruption and illicit financial flows. The gains made in reducing bank secrecy need to be realised. Although mechanisms for international co-operation exist, they need to be used more effectively if financial crimes are to be tackled.

Concrete action can be taken – but it requires a sustained commitment from the political leadership and senior government officials. Some countries have proven the benefits of a domestic whole of government approach, and the importance of international co-operation. For example, the OECD and World Bank will present the findings of their joint Report on Improving Co-operation between Tax Authorities and Anti-Corruption Authorities in Combating Tax Crime and Corruption, which shows that when the many
opportunities for cross-agency co-operation are used, they can have a big impact on financial crime. But these are generally not being pursued domestically, and even less so internationally – and it needs to change.

This session will explore the political and practical challenges in busting the silos and fighting financial crime co-operatively, both domestically and internationally. It will identify what needs to change within governments as part of galvanising the global response to tackle corruption and financial crime.

Code to Integrity: Digital Avenues to Anti-Corruption
Technology is neither good nor bad. It’s just a tool—a very powerful tool—and what matters is how the world uses it. It can be used as an avenue to help tackle corruption [1]The next couple of years will see artificial intelligence, automated processes and machine issued official documents enter states everywhere. Power to make decisions on issues is shifting from public sector workers to algorithms. E-governance applies digital tools in interactions between government, citizens and private business, and in internal government dealings. It is a digital venue to tackle corruption by making public sector processes paper and cashless and to accelerate SDG 16 implementation towards strong institutions marked by integrity.

But behind every opportunity are risks. In a world of digital divide, where large parts of the world population, especially women, do not have access to new technology, these new digital avenues to tackle corruption are only open to some. In addition, the code underpinning digital states risks being manipulated or corrupted. No code is more immune to corruption than the integrity and cleverness of the humans who wrote it.

It requires leaders to navigate to the frontiers of technology, of policy and of thinking to mitigate new types of corruption risks. The scale, spread, and speed of change made possible by digital technologies is unprecedented, but the current means and levels of international cooperation are unequal to the challenge.
Co-chairing the session, the Danish Minister for Development Cooperation Ulla Tørnæs and the Norwegian Minister of International Development Nikolai Astrup invite you to further explore the tension between risk and opportunity arising from applying new digital tools to combat corruption.

Introducing the session’s topic, the Danish Minister will present the publication “Code to Integrity”, an easily accessible overview of some current cases of using digital tools for anti-corruption that are available to governments today. Her Norwegian co-chair will introduce Norway’s Digital Strategy for Development Policy that sets out to support partner countries to apply digital tools, including for anti-corruption., and present United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ newly established High-Level Panel on Digital Cooperation in which Minister Astrup is a Panel Member.

Following these introductions, the panellists will share concrete experiences and emerging practices of deploying digital tools to combat corruption, keeping in mind both benefits and costs, opportunities and risks.

During the session, a few selected entrepreneurs from the ‘Code to Integrity’ publication will present their digital tools, inspiring the discussion with concrete use cases and exposing the participants to real examples of digital avenues to anti-corruption.

Corruption, Fragility and Conflict
Corruption in countries dealing with conflict or fragility is particularly destructive, as it undermines the ability of governments to provide even the most basic public services, steals from the most vulnerable, and widens inequalities. It exacerbates social unrest and conflict and can contribute to violent extremism. Confronting corruption in these fragile environments is critical for long-term stability and shared prosperity. But this work is extremely challenging and is made more so by a lack of transparency and accountability along with low trust in already weak institutions. The successes and disappointments of the last decades have been instructive in how to effectively address corruption in these difficult and varied contexts. How can we leverage the latest innovations together with what we have learned from past engagements? How can we make sure that efforts to address corruption in fragile and conflict states are most likely to succeed?

The proposed panel discussion will focus on (i) the contextual challenges that must be addressed when confronting corruption in fragile and conflict states; (ii) the core elements of successful engagements and the critical role of ensuring accountability; (iii) the challenges of managing risk and the importance of balancing longer-term sustainable impact on corruption, as well as more immediate successes; (iv) the need to focus on both building capacity and skills within government systems, and building coalitions among civil society and other stakeholder groups; and (v) the untapped potential for transformative interventions rooted in new technologies.

Envisioning the Future of Integrity in Infrastructure: Holistic Approaches for Managing Corruption Risks Across the Public Investment Cycle
Infrastructure projects carry a multitude of positive benefits to economies and societies as a whole.  Investment in public infrastructure allows governments to respond to policy challenges, foster sustainable economic growth, and ultimately improve the well-being of citizens. Yet, infrastructure projects are notoriously vulnerable to corruption and fraud due to their size, complexity and investment value. When corruption risks materialise in infrastructure projects, the environment, economy, and citizens may suffer. With investment constituting 20% of gross domestic product (GDP) in OECD countries[1], governments are expected to manage corruption risks in order to ensure that resources are used effectively, and that projects are implemented to the highest standards of quality and integrity.

 Throughout the life cycle of an infrastructure project, governments are required to navigate various sectors and industries, bringing together a multitude of actors that may pose different corruption risks. Indeed, the OECD foreign bribery data[2] shows that 57% of cases involved bribes to obtain public procurement contracts, and state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in particular are vulnerable to corruption also resulting also from their close relationship with decision makers.

Due to their complex nature and evolving timescale, large infrastructure projects bring with them considerable integrity and corruption risks at each stage of the investment cycle. From the exercise of undue influence or capture during the preliminary stages to opaque practices in the procurement cycle and suboptimal performance in the implementation and operation phases, corruption risks can derail the effective delivery of infrastructure projects and divert public investment from its intended use. Corruption in infrastructure can cause environmental, safety and health risks. Moreover, it has a significant opportunity cost: at a global level, a country with high levels of corruption tends to invest less in education and health systems and more in prestigious infrastructure projects that do not always have obvious benefits for society.

This session will explore the strategies and mechanisms by which governments, contractors, and other key actors involved in the selection, design and delivery of public infrastructure can effectively address corruption risks. From ensuring due diligence is undertaken in the preliminary selection phase to designing resilient procurement and management strategies and tools, the session will offer a holistic perspective on effective risk management of corruption risks in public infrastructure. Drawing from the panellists’ own experience and the OECD’s standards and evidence base, participants will consider the main challenges for managing risks across the project cycle, as well as the tools and measures that can be adopted to ensure that public infrastructure projects are delivered in line with the principles of integrity, effectiveness, efficiency, and transparency. Among other initiatives, this could include e-procurement, collective actions, applying the High-Level Reporting Mechanism, as tools for safeguarding integrity and combating corruption in infrastructure.

Tackling Corruption Through Open Government
Tackling corruption is an essential part of to ensuring that governments are responsive to, and effective in, delivering for all citizens. Open government approaches – promoting more transparent, responsive, and participatory governments - make it harder for corruption to flourish. They ensure that information is made available and that citizens have explicit ways to monitor, thereby not just facilitating prevention of corruption but also facilitating ease of investigation and prosecution where necessary. Open government approaches to tackling corruption also recognize that civil society can be a partner to governments, lending their expertise to advance implementation, and mobilizing citizens to be the eyes and years of government.

This session, co-led by the Government of Georgia and the Open Government Partnership, explores some innovative ways that countries have used open government approaches to tackle corruption Over 75 national and 20 local governments are part of the Open Government Partnership, through which they are working with civil society to advance their anti-corruption agenda. For example, OGP countries have made commitments related to open contracting, transparency in natural resource governance, citizens monitoring of budgets, institutionalizing social accountability for delivery of public services to identify and plug leakages in essential government programs. The Government of Georgia, having just completed its tenure as the Co-Chair of OGP, will share experience of developing innovative ways to prevent and fight against corruption in public services.

The panel will also explore how countries piloting different anti-corruption reforms are linking their OGP commitments to other global dialogue on anti-corruption, such as SDGs, G20, OECD, or using their OGP action plans for promote accountability for implementation of their 2016 UK anti-corruption summit announcements. The conversation led by ministers, senior civil servants, civil society leaders, experts from international organizations will explore challenges and opportunities of tackling corruption through open government approaches.

Towards a Global Norm of Beneficial Ownership Transparency
Secretly owned companies, where the identity of the real owners – the ‘beneficial owners’ – are unknown, are the favoured getaway vehicles of the corrupt. According to World Bank research[1], these companies are used 70% of the time to launder the proceeds of grand corruption. These companies also enable fraud, tax evasion, organised crime and terrorist financing, at great cost to citizens, particularly in the developing world. There is increasing realisation that transparency of beneficial ownership is a critical tool to prevent and tackle corruption and other illicit financial flows; and as a global issue, there must be a global effort to eliminate the secrecy that provides a safe haven for corrupt money.
In the last three years, there have been significant moves towards greater global transparency:
  • The G7 and G20 have made transparency in beneficial ownership a key priority;
  • At the London Anti-Corruption Summit in May 2016, 38 countries made commitments to improve beneficial ownership transparency[2], several of which included commitments to national public registers;
  • Beneficial ownership transparency became a requirement of the EITI Standard for all oil, gas and mining companies in over 50 countries;
  • The European Union is requiring all member states to establish public registers;
  • Countries, including Denmark, Ghana, Norway, the UK, Ukraine and Zambia, have passed national legislation enabling beneficial ownership transparency and are working towards, or already have established, public registers; and
  • The World Bank is publishing the beneficial owners of any company winning a contract on any large Bank-funded project from 2018.                                                                                                                                              
However, international architecture lags behind these developments, and the capacity, tools and technical assistance needed to develop national and public beneficial ownership registers are not yet in place.

This session asks how these obstacles can be overcome and what the challenges are at a country level in creating national registers and making them public. Looking further ahead, it asks what is needed to achieve a global norm of beneficial ownership transparency and how can we harness international and national leadership to this end?

The world is witnessing the erosion of good governance and the rise of populism and extremism and with it a sharp increase in human right violations and violence. Good governance is central to preventing corruption and the rise of non-democratic regimes. The aspiration of people from all continents to live in peace and stand against injustice is no longer possible. This plenary session aims to identify and call for urgent actions that government and international organisations must implement in order to support citizens, activists, and journalists who fight for their rights and the rights of their people and face threats, coercion or worst.

The Fight against Corruption as a Threat to Democracy
The session will focus on the possible side effects of large-scale corruption investigations in contributing to the rise of populist and/or anti-establishment radical movements. The session will discuss whether and under which circumstances the exposure of corruption networks may fuel radicalism, populism and/or legitimacy crises and what the consequences for the anti-corruption movement may entail. The anticorruption movement has dedicated a great deal of effort to developing mechanisms aimed at exposing corruption networks and prosecuting the corrupt. The proposed workshop innovates by drawing attention to the “day after”: the difficulties that may emerge in the wake of major corruption scandals. The workshop challenges the generally accepted theory that fighting and eventually diminishing corruption will necessarily strengthen democracy by itself. The unveiling of criminal activities in government and political parties is sometimes followed by great political instability, which may be attributed to: (i) the creation of a power vacuum due to the reputational damage suffered by traditional leaderships and parties; (ii) the fueling of cynicism towards the political establishment or, in extreme cases, towards public institutions themselves; (iii) the entrenchment of the idea that corruption is inevitable and merely a “part of the game”. Activists and institutions should take such negative consequences in consideration when designing its strategies in the fight against corruption. The session will be run in three parts, beginning with a presentation of three concrete cases and their lessons learned. From there, we will facilitate an open debate with the participants to incorporate other cases, experiences and views from different regions of the world. Finally, we will introduce the comparative balance sheet and propose strategic guidelines for future actions.

My Friend, My Cousin, My Business Partner: How to Prevent Misuse of Entrusted Power in Small Societies
Greenland, Iceland and Estonia all have tiny populations, which means few people to fill all of societies’ positions from politicians to business people, from media to civil society. We are all connected - the next person over is for sure either a friend of the family, a cousin, a business partner, a neighbour or a former girlfriend.

This provides a special challenge in ensure that entrusted power is not misused in the form of nepotism or beneficial treatment. Iceland and Estonia both score lower than the Nordic countries in the TI Corruption Perception Index – Iceland is ranked as number 13 and Estonia as number 21, while there is no data for Greenland.

All three countries have seen examples of the negative consequences of the loss of trust when politicians or business people are – or are perceived to be – misusing entrusted power to benefit themselves or their personal networks.

Many smaller countries are facing significant challenges with nepotism and the misuse of entrusted power. The session addresses these issues from a distinct small country perspective to clarify what is unique to this setting.

In addition to the benefits gained from bringing people together in the workshop for a fruitful discussion, we are also planning to use the workshop as a communication platform to raise awareness of the issues. As a preparation for the workshop, the three TI Chapters will draft a short publication focusing on the topic and the main challenges we see. This will be used as a starting point for the workshop, and following the workshop, the article will be updated with inputs from the workshop and released broader in all three countries and beyond. We are planning to use the workshop and joint article as a platform for a social media campaign, and potentially as a foundation for joint fundraising for a project to help understand and address the issues further.

Civil Society for Development: Opportunities Through the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC)
Corruption is a cross-cutting issue with far-reaching negative impacts on development, from the distribution of resources to erosion of public trust in institutions and the rule of law to hampering investment. To achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development corruption must be tackled given the linkages across all the goals and its real life impacts.

 UNCAC and its review mechanism is the only internationally binding instrument and can measure progress towards the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 16. Therefore, UNODC has developed a manual on how CSOs have successfully contributed to the Convention and how they can further develop their expertise. Panelists  from Eastern Africa, Southeast Asia and Southeast Europe will present their cases in a workshop shared by UNODC. The event will be an opportunity to launch the publication which informs CSOs, governments and other interested parties on the potential entry points and best practises for engaging on the UNCAC.

How OECD's Principles on Water Governance Promote Accountability, Sustainable Development and Social Justice Together
Under the leadership of the OECD and the multi-stakeholder Water Governance Initiative (WGI), the 12 OECD ‘Principles’ were promulgated in 2015 to promote good governance in the water sector through improving effectiveness, efficiency and trust and engagement; Principle 9 focuses on Integrity and Transparency. These Principles are supported by the 35 OECD member countries, 7 non-member countries and 140+ stakeholder groups, including Transparency International. Since then, the WGI has catalyzed governance success stories as well as developed and tested indicators (in 12 countries and 4 continents) to support the implementation of the Principles, consistent with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Going forward, the WGI aims to widen its focus and reach, to include capacity development, and a substantial number of African countries. The aims of this session are to: (a) demonstrate how the OECD ‘Principles ‘ provide a framework for promoting accountability, sustainable development and social justice in the water sector; and (b) engage new stakeholders in the Principles’ implementation.

The water sector is vulnerable to corruption because of: (a) its fragmented governance; (b) its high investment requirements; and (c) high levels of involvement of the corruption-prone construction sector in implementing hydraulic infrastructure investments. Thus, it is appropriate to review the approach of the WGI to address these and related challenges, including the implementation of Water Governance Principle 9 and its relevance in meeting the SDG 16.5 targets “substantial reduction in bribery and corruption”.

The session’s target group includes stakeholders interested/involved in: promoting good governance in the water sector i.e. advocacy CSOs and other water sector actors, agencies engaged in anticorruption reforms and programs; supreme audit institutions and private sector institutions; sectoral initiatives i.e. the media and development partners/donors; and improving governance in other SDGs, where water plays a critical part e.g. Affordable and Clean Energy and Life on Land.

The Business Case for Civic Rights
This session will explore how business benefits from citizens defending democracy and the rule of law. Based on a number of case studies, participants will discuss how civil society and companies can better work together in the fight against corruption and for citizens’ rights to participate in and control governments.
 
Beginning with a panel comprised of representatives from civil society and businesses, we will explore what ‘closing space' really means, what it looks like, and why businesses and NGOs should care about this—including highlighting work that is already being done by companies to take action. Following this, we will simulate an interactive, role-play workshop where groups of participants will receive a ‘real’ scenario in which civic space has been closing. Acting as the board of a hypothetical NGO and a relevant department within a business (sustainability, legal etc). Participants will need to identify the mechanism by which the government is repressing civil society and identify 3 strategies companies and civil society can take to curtail government action that violates civic rights or closes civic space.

Film Festival Screening: Dead Donkeys Fear No Hyenas
Trailer
90 mins. 2017

Ethiopia is one of the most profitable destinations in the global rush for farmland, the new green gold. Hoping for export revenues, the Ethiopian government leases millions of hectares of allegedly unused land to foreign investors. This drive for prosperity has resulted in the most massive forced evictions in modern history, harsh repression and a vicious spiral of violence. EU, the World Bank and DFID, contribute to this disaster by providing billions of dollars in development money. Dead Donkeys Fear No Hyenas investigates these foreign land-investments and exposes their impact on people’s lives.

Post-show speakers:
Argaw Ashine is an Ethiopian journalist specializing in media and development issues covering Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa for major news agencies including  Nation Media Group (Daily Nation) and Mail and Guardian. He founded Ethiopian Environmental Journalists Association (EEJA) to bring more journalists to work on development and environment issues. Argaw left Ethiopia in late 2011 after the government attempted to arrest him and EEJA was shut by government. There have been positive developments since the release of the film. Saudi-Ethiopian billionaire Mohammed Al Amoudi owner of Saudi Star who featured heavily through the film, was arrested in November 2017. Environmentalist Omot Agwa Okwoy who also features in the film was held in the infamous Kilinto prison for nearly two years. In April 2018, all charges against Omot were dropped.

'Golden ticket' or 'Get of jail free card'? How to Stop the Corrupt from Buying Citizenship
Global Witness and the Global Anti-Corruption Coalition (GACC) are joining forces to ensure that citizenship- and residency-by-investment are not open to abuse by the corrupt and the criminal.

The panel discussion will: raise the awareness of the global anti-corruption community to the multifaceted risks posed by the citizenship- and residency-by-investment schemes on offer in the European Union and other jurisdictions; discuss our recommendations for reducing risks (e.g. enhanced due diligence, transparency standards, application of AML regulations); test our policy recommendations and understanding of the schemes with a global audience; and showcase the investigations, methodology and success of the GACC.

This will be the first time that the full gamut of risks posed by CBI and RBI schemes - and the means to tackle them - will be discussed on a world stage. It will also be the first time that an active GACC campaign will be profiled.

To reach safe haven many corrupt officials avail themselves of "citizenship by investment" or "residency by investment" schemes. We contend that these schemes are a key part of the ‘corruption toolkit’ that enables the corrupt to enjoy the proceeds of their crimes, avoid red flags, and evade prosecution. As such, these schemes are effectively a ‘get out of jail free’ card that allow nefarious individuals to continue their corrupt activity in their jurisdiction of choice, enjoying global mobility and the additional rights and safety conferred by new residency and citizenship. These concerns are borne out by numerous investigations that have published over the past year. Stories uncovered by the GACC have revealed how these schemes risk enabling the corrupt to achieve safe haven and have the potential to corrupt the state itself when these schemes are poorly run and too-easily exploited by corrupt figures.

As a result of the panel:
  • Attendees will find out how CBI & RBI schemes form part of the ‘corruption toolkit’.
  • Campaigners will be inspired by the GACC methodology and equipped to lobby governments to review their exposure to the risks posed by CBI & RBI schemes and call for stronger due diligence and transparency measures.
  • Investigators will be informed of the policy and advocacy context surrounding CBI & RBI schemes.
  • Due-diligence professionals will be informed of the due diligence needed to identify risks associated with CBI & RBI applicants.
  • Government officials will be made aware of the risks involved the schemes and how to mitigate them.
  • Campaigners and investigative journalists will be empowered to connect with Global Witness and the GACC in order to grow the campaign worldwide.
After the panel, participants will be able join a mailing list to receive new research and campaign updates and will be invited to take part in social media advocacy efforts focused on the 2019 European elections.

From Korea to Kenya: Following the Billions for Climate Finance to the Frontline
With the Paris Agreement, countries committed to mobilising USD 100 billion dollars per year to assist developing countries in tackling climate change. This money is funnelled through international mechanisms like the Green Climate Fund, and then relies on national or multilateral climate institutions to ensure it is used effectively on the ground. Along each stage, there are a myriad of opportunities for corruption to seep in and syphon off or redirect this money, threatening today’s vulnerable and all future generations. This workshop brings together the Green Climate Fund Integrity Unit, the Open Contracting Partnership, GIZ, Transparency International chapters and national level institutions to discuss new tools and partnerships for ensuring that climate flows to get to where they are needed to improve the living conditions and life options of some of the world’s most vulnerable. It will also capture concrete good practices and initiatives to mainstream SDG 16 into SDG 13.

Gone but Not Forgotten: Beyond the legacy of the Anti-Corruption Summit
In 2018, the conversations at international convenings focused to a large extent on tackling corruption. Whether it was in the African Union, the OECD forum in March, the Summit of Americas is on “Democratic Governance against Corruption” in Aprile, to the OGP Global Summit in Georgia in July, and now on to the IACC. Summits of this kind are typically important moments to secure high-level political commitment the the anti-corruption agenda, yet more often than not, global summits result in little follow through or accountability for implementation. 

This panel discussion will look at commitments made at the 2016 Anti-Corruption Summit in London, and speak to the progress made by a number of governments on implementing these commitments. The panel will seek to highlight success stories since the Summit, showcase champion countries and share lessons learned – on national, regional and international levels – turn into action (e.g. through the use of the OGP National Action Plans). It also seeks to surface ideas on how to make stronger linkages between global forums (including the IACC) and domestic reform agenda. It will also look at the role civil society will play in reinforcing and monitoring governments in implementing these commitments. 


Objectives
- Ensure these commitments remain a priority for the implementing governments/partners
- Identify anti-corruption leaders who can generate momentum/re-energise others across different global forums
- Maintain visibility and profile of the commitments made at the London Summit and other relevant global forums

How Can We Help Reduce Corruption - Guidelines, Practise and Culture
As Danish companies are players internationally they meet challenges regarding corruption all over the world. Corruption has the potential to undermine people’s trust in political and economic systems, institutions and leaders. It might discourage investments and distort international competitive conditions. It can cause negative impacts on human rights, cost people their freedom, health, money - and sometimes their lives.  The concrete dilemma may be the following:

If a company operates in a country where it is common practice to make payments to public officials, and you just said no, but are advised by the official that it will lead to a delay of 2 weeks, which will have serious consequences for your company, what do you then do?

Why is the anti-corruption work so important?
The importance of the global business community and trade for Danish business and for Danish companies – and why anti-corruption is important.

Can international guidelines be helpful? Presentation of the Danish Contact Point to the OECD.
OECD Guidelines on Multinational Enterprises includes a chapter on anti-corruption. One of the fundamental principles of the guidelines is an obligation to risk-based due diligence in order to help companies to implement anti-corruption practices. The Danish Contact Point to the OECD deals with cases of whether Danish companies, public authorities etc. act in compliance with the principles set up by the OECD Guidelines, including anti-corruption and has an obligation raise awareness about the OECD guidelines [1]. The special system of mediation, complaints and due diligence will be presented by chairman of the Danish National Contact point for OECD Professor Linda Nielsen.

How can enterprises play a role in combating corruption – examples of good practise
Representatives from important Danish sectors as pharma and shipping will share their experiences on anti-corruption and share their views on who to address: Management, CSR specialists, employees in general. We will learn more about what are the tools in their toolbox and what about incentives and organization culture? Presentations will be made by Cecilia Müller Torbrand, Program Director, Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN) and Jesper Lund Bredesen, HQ-PARC Chair, Senior Director Lundbeck.

Which are the challenges and ways forward to reduce corruption?
A panel composed by business representatives will discuss challenges and ways to move forward. How can decision-making include anti-corruption focus and practice?

Session Rapporteur: Prof. Linda Nielsen

Using Data to Counter Corruption and Money Laundering
Corruption and money laundering are complex crimes, driven by networks of individuals, professional intermediaries and companies. In order to tackle it effectively, we need to spot the patterns and dismantle these networks. Many corruption schemes leave their mark on government held datasets, and rely on the ability to secure ownership of companies, land, and assets to launder corrupt proceeds.

In recent years, open data - data that can be freely used, modified and shared by anyone for any purpose - has emerged as an important instrument in tackling corruption. Company registers, public contracts, asset disclosures and interest registers are all important sources of information for detecting corruption. To harness this opportunity, information needs to move out of its silos, be cross-referenced with other data sets, and new technologies need to be employed for screening it. This workshop explores some of the latest approaches for analysing large quantities of data for anti-corruption and anti-money laundering purposes and facilitates a conversation about the value of open data for tackling these crimes.

This workshop will:
i) Encourage civil society organisations, journalists and others to use and build on existing approaches for analysing large quantities of data (i.e. beneficial ownership registers; PEPs databases, offshore leaks).
ii) Share learning and contrast methods with law enforcement and the private sector’s approach for analysing data for AML purposes.
iii) Encourage civil society orgnaisations and others to advocate for open data sets (e.g. beneficial ownership) and provide them with concrete examples to use in their advocacy.

Special Pre-Release Screening: #pinkhairwhistleblower
During Plenary 3

25 mins. 2018

Christopher Wylie, the so-called ‘data whistleblower’ who worked for Cambridge Analytica, reveals how, in early 2014, 87 million Facebook users information was taken without authorisation to build a system to profile and target US voters with personalised political advertisements. At the time the company was owned by the hedge fund billionaire Robert Mercer and headed by Donald Trump’s key adviser, Steve Bannon. Using the architecture Wylie helped to engineer, people are perceived as observable, measurable data sets, allowing for the prediction and modification of behaviour. No longer ‘simply’ about privacy, it has the capacity to create an entirely new level of social inequality. This short film acts as a beacon to investigate a system that is on its way to becoming an all encompassing new power structure that we currently know far too little about.

After the screening the Plenary 3 speakers will discuss the issues raised in the film with Jess Search.

Plenary 3: Exposing the Corrupt, Knocking out Impunity
The role of media and particularly of investigative journalists have transformed the fight against corruption: leaks, whistleblowers, cross-border investigations and the use of new technologies, and data have played a significant role in it. On the other side, social media manipulation and the emerging phenomena of fake news counterbalance the impact of media on the benefit of those who cling to power due to corrupt interests. This plenary session aims to highlight how exposing has changed the anti-corruption fight and identify the necessary measures to deal with media manipulation and fake news.

The Unintended Consequences of the Fight against Corruption
This session will discuss the unintended consequences of corruption measures being experienced by financial institutions/intermediaries and CSOs, why they are important to address (if not, they can pave the way for deeper issues such as money flowing outside of the formal banking channels) and open the door to discuss ways in which this can be addressed.

Corruption is estimated to cost more than 5% of global GDP (US 2.6 trillion). Corruption undermines sustainable development, has a chilling effect on investment, damages the rule of law, and exacerbates inequality while enricheing dictators, traffickers and terrorists. Measures need to be taken to tackle this issue. Around the world civil society organisations (CSOs) play a crucial role in exposing corruption, revealing vested interests and holding the powerful to account when the rule of law fails. However, in our attempts to tackle corruption, sometimes more harm than good can be done. For instance, cracking down on online illicit funding should not undermine internet freedoms, strengthening financial regulation should not be at odds with the sustainable development agenda on financial inclusion, the costs of compliance should not shut out CSOs from access to funds. The very regulation designed to combat corruption should not emasculate the very institutions which seek to address it.

Nordic Anti-Corruption Strategies
The ‘good’ results of the Corruption Perceptions Index in the Nordic countries can be misleading. In the Nordic countries there is increasingly a recognition that such single metrics can conceal serious corruption, mismanagement and irregularities. In recent years National Integrity Studies have thus been carried out in many developed countries, which have highlighted that there is a need for Nordic countries to take greater responsibility for combatting corruption both internationally and domestically. Furthermore, with the adoption of the SDGs, it has been emphasised that all countries- both developed and developing countries have a responsibility for cross border effects of their policies and setting goals and targets for reaching the SDGs in their own countries.A recent research has concluded that most developed nations are actually well aware of the need for a broader approach to anti-corruption but few have yet formalized their strategies. (http://www.statecraft.org.uk/sites/default/files/documents/EMEA_2384_Bespoke%20brochure__Countries%20Curbing%20corruption%20final%20report_V3....pdf[1]). Of the 26 top-ranking countries in the CPI index, only two – Estonia and the UK – havea formal, published anti-corruption strategy while Finland has a draft strategy. This workshop will focus on both the process and outcome of AC-strategy. What is a good process? Who should be involved? How do we set priorities? Which are the high-risk sectors? What should a good strategy look like? The session will then move on to a discussion on the possible positive outcomes. Have any positive outcomes of anti-corruption strategies in Nordic countries been detected so far? The workshop has an interesting mix of panelists from governmental departments responsible for drawing up anti-corruption strategies as well as civil society activists and researchers, who have been involved from the outside. It is expected that participants from Nordic as well as non-Nordic countries can get inspiration from this session for how to draw up anti-corruption strategies in their respective countries.

Confronting Tax Evasion and Other Illicit Financial Flows – Time to Translate Commitments into Action
This session will take stock of recent years’ efforts to curb tax evasion and other illicit financial flows, including the follow-up to the Panama Papers, settlements with Swiss banks and other major cases, targeting of enablers of tax evasion constructs, and tax policy and administration related steps taken to prevent evasion. The presenters will provide different perspectives, highlighting their countries’ political, fiscal, and enforcement experiences. The questions posed to the panelists are: (i) What have we learned from recent years’ fight against international tax evasion; (ii) Will exchange of information be a game-changer; (iii) How do we ensure a truly international effort to combat tax evasion; and (iv) How do we strengthen the capacity in developing countries to ensure effective enforcement mechanisms and increased tax revenue?

New Impetus for Anti-Corruption Institutions: UNCAC, Jakarta Principles and Beyond
The last two decades have witnessed a significant growth of Anti-Corruption Agencies (ACAs) around the world. Today there are more than 100 anti-corruption agencies in the world. Despite their increasing numbers at present, ACAs across the world show only a patch work of successes.  This may be due to a lack of independence, inadequate resources allocation, low capacity of its officials, as well as low level of public trust and support.   Therefore new tools and approaches are needed to make ACAs more accountable to their stakeholders.

The 7th COSP UNCAC Resolution 7/5 calls on state parties to take note of the Jakarta Principles to ensure the necessary independence and competence for anti-corruption agencies (ACAs) in accordance with the Article 6 of the UNCAC. The Jakarta Principles, comprising 16 key principles derived from country experiences and challenges from around the world, provide a roadmap for strengthening ACA independence and effectiveness.

The Jakarta Principles provides key elements that ACAs should have to be able to perform effectively. It contains recommendations on the importance of adequate authorities and resources, accountability and transparency, and also cooperation and collaboration to ensure independent and effective ACAs. However, more discussion on practical examples on how to implement the principles is required.

This workshop aims to define the practical steps to implement the Jakarta Principles as an accountability framework for ACAs in order to create independent and well-functioning ACAs. The workshop also will identify challenges in the application of these principles and also identify how collective action can contribute to strengthen and improve the independence of the ACAs. This IACC workshop invites experts and practitioners from around the world to discuss about the importance of independent and effective anti-corruption agencies (ACAs) in the anti-corruption movement. This workshop also explore the application of the Jakarta Principles as the prospective framework in implementing Article 6 and 36 of the UNCAC

The Battle Inside the War- What Stands Between Women in Conflict Situations and Help?
Wars and other conflict situations have been recognized as an aggravating factor in Women’s vulnerability, inflicting peculiar kinds of suffering. These include trafficking, kidnappings, sexual slavery and forced prostitution. Realizing these dangers, development and humanitarian assistance are regularly deployed to conflict zones with an emphasis on cushioning women and other vulnerable groups and shelter them from the worst of the effects of conflicts and war. The Workshop will review the situation of Women in Conflict situations and how efforts at alleviating their distress are undermined by corruption, impacting negatively on peace efforts, social justice and ultimately, development for not just the women but also other persons for whom they have a degree of responsibility

This will be a first time effort to address the gender dimensions of humanitarian assistance in conflict situations which are often ignored or lost in the broader narratives of war and corruption.

Trends and Strategies to Protect and Reclaim Civic Space
The civic space for activists in the natural resource sector has seen increasing restrictions and attacks on activists are growing. Civil society and activists have seen strategies employed to undermine their credibility and legitimacy, to surveil and intimidate, and legislation which has restricted access to funding, and shifts in donor priorities has restricted civil society’s ability to work on anti-corruption issues. At the same time, developments and proliferation of digital technologies have provided new opportunities and new challenges for civil society - we have seen Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) used to communicate and mobilise people both within and from outside a country in support; to document and communicate abuses by state and private-sector actors. On the flip side, we have seen technologies used to surveil, intimidate, profile activists and conduct smear campaigns to undermine the legitimacy of civil society working in an already difficult sector.

This session will be an interactive workshop where participants will discuss and share their experiences in relation to the following three questions:
  1. How is civic space changing in the country that you work in? How has this affected your work?
  2. What positive and negative experiences relating to civic space have you had with technology in your work?
  3. What strategies and tactics have you used to make the most of the opportunities or counter these threats?
The conversation will be kicked off by a number of named speakers before workshop participants will be invited to join the conversation. This will be a highly participatory session - please come prepared to join the conversation!

Trends in Combating Corruption in the Private Sector
International anti-corruption standards and domestic anti-bribery laws with extra-territorial reach have highlighted the crucial importance to the private sector of proactively confronting and combating corruption. Public expectations for business to be conducted fairly and with integrity, and for governments to be transparent about public commercial deals, are rising worldwide in the face of repeated corporate corruption scandals and state capture by economic elites.

Private entities represent not only the victims but also the perpetrators of corruption. Dealing with this multi-faceted problem therefore requires a broad range of often complementary anti-corruption measures both on the individual and collective levels, as well as in terms of dealings with public actors and investors. On the corporate level, implementing integrity and compliance programmes is an important step towards preventing corruption. Measures such as anti-corruption due diligence on third parties and the supply chain can help to strengthen integrity in the wider business environment. Collective Action can enable multiple companies to work together and with other actors, including civil society. Interactions with the public sector are also crucial: for example, tackling corruption in large scale investment projects requires multiple actions by governments and the private sector to enable competition and transparency to flourish so that public procurement processes are not tainted by corruption. The potential consequences of engagement by each one of these actors increases exponentially when individual actions are connected and reinforced through collaboration with other state and non-state groups.

This workshop will therefore bring together a panel of experts and practitioners to share their experiences, challenges and lessons learned in order to explore the pathways to strengthening private sector integrity.

Women’s Political Participation and Corruption -- Does Gender Matter? Female’s Politicians’ Engagement in Anti-corruption Efforts
There is evidence that corruption affects women and men differently and hits the poor and vulnerable groups the hardest, especially women, who represent a higher share of the world’s poor. But women are not only victims of corruption; they are also part of the solution. Greater female participation in political life is consistently associated with less corruption in many countries of the world. This has led some countries to promote women’s participation in political life as an anti-corruption tool. However, while few studies reject this correlation, there is no conclusive evidence that substantiate the underlying assumption that women will behave in ways that are less corrupt than men once they overcome barriers to political power.  In fact, the mechanisms at play and the factors likely to support or inhibit the correlation between women’s political participation and reduced levels of corruption are not yet very well understood. There is no consensus on what effects to expect when the number of women in parliament, political parties or other political institutions increase and what women’s representation in political life is likely to affect and how.

At the same time, some studies have shown that corruption hinders women’s political representation and prevent them from accessing the leadership positions that would allow them to influence the policy debate. This is particularly true in corrupt contexts. In clientelistic environments, women are more likely to be excluded from male dominated election networks - often referred to as “old boy’s networks”-, which makes it more difficult for them to enter the political sphere.

This could represent a missed opportunity for the anti-corruption agenda. While very few studies specifically investigate the effect of women participation on anti-corruption policies, there is evidence that women’s political representation tends to influence policy outcomes, with greater investments in traditional women’s’ concerns such as child care, water provision, health and environment.

So what are the potential benefits of women’s political empowerment for the anti-corruption agenda? To which extent and under which circumstances are female politicians likely to champion anti-corruption issues? Are they likely to do things differently than male politicians once in political office?  What are the factors that support or hamper their successful engagement in anti-corruption? What is likely to work (or not work) in engaging women female politicians in anti-corruption? These are some of the questions that this workshop will contribute to answer.

Drawing from cutting-edge research and forthcoming publications exploring the linkages between women political participation and corruption, leading experts and practitioners will present findings from recent studies, discuss the state of research on the topic and identify knowledge gap and further needs for research.

We hope that the discussions will contribute to bring the debate further and provide some element of answers to these questions, with the view to:
  • raising awareness on the potential of engaging female politicians in anti-corruption
  • improving our understanding on whether and under which circumstances female politicians are likely to support and engage in the fight against corruption
  • identifying knowledge gaps and further research needs on the linkages between women political empowerment and anti-corruption
  • informing interventions aimed at promoting female politicians’ leadership and engagement in anti-corruption
  • bringing together academic experts and practitioners to bridge the gap between academic research and practitioners’ knowledge needs

Film Festival Screening: A Thousand Girls like Me
Trailer
76 mins. 2018

Khatera is 23 and pregnant. Both this unborn child and her young daughter were conceived following sustained sexual abuse by her father.  Her fight to bring her father to justice exposes the lack of legal protection in a country where women rarely attempt to seek justice for themselves. The courts finally take notice of her case, after she tells her story on television, leading to a landmark conviction using DNA evidence. Yet this action turns her family and the community against her and she is forced into hiding. Her uncles believe only the death of Khatera and her children will end the shame on their family and exonerate their brother.

Post-show speakers:   Khatera was smuggled out of the country for her own safety and now lives in France with her fiance and her children. Both Khatera and Sahra Mani the film’s director and founder of Afghanistan Doc House are using the film to support women who are forced to keep silent about violations against them. The post show discussion will bring Khatera and Mani together with other women’s rights activists (to be announced) to share experiences and discuss the power of the film as an inspiring and urgent advocacy tool for women’s rights and human rights activists

Film Festival Special Pre-Release Screening: The Trial of Ratko Mladic
Mladic was one of the most infamous figures of the Bosnian war of the 1990s and was synonymous with the murder of over 7,000 Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica in 1995 -- the worst crime on European soil since World War II.  Filmed over five years with unprecedented access to the prosecution lawyers, the defence, witnesses who came to give evidence, and Mladic's supporters and family members in Bosnia, The Trial of Ratko Mladic tells an epic story of justice, accountability and a country trying to escape from its bloody past.

Post-show speakers: Peter McCloskey, the lead prosecutor in the trial of General Ratko Mladic, and Branko Lukic, Mladic’s lead defense lawyer have their first face-to-face meeting since the trial’s end to discuss the work of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, the tension between justice and reconciliation, and the future, if any, of international criminal justice.  McCloskey and Lukic tried a combined thirteen cases at the ICTY, culminating in the Mladic trial.  They will be joined on the panel by the filmmakers Rob Miller and Henry Singer.

Is the American Anti-Corruption Model Broken? Global Impact and Prospects
Since the end of World War Two, the United States has sought to promote democracy, human rights, press freedom and justice across the world, based on values and models that find their basis in the US Constitution and the perspectives of the founders of the United States. BUT, rarely before have there been so many simultaneous challenges to this model in the United States as today and the impact, at home and globally on anti-corruption is already significant and could become far more sinister.

The workshop aims to inform and educate – and increase understanding among anticorruption fighters of the global economic, political, strategic and humanitarian consequences of the evolving dangerous situation in the United States.

The workshop will explore some of the following issues and explain their international significance:
Never before have the core institutional pillars of U.S. democracy been as gravely under siege as they are today. Conflicts of interest and unethical activities are a

Defenders at the Front line: Corruption and the Crisis of Attacks on Environmental Defenders
We will hear from key representatives of the indigenous rights movement, investigators, anti-corruption campaigners and frontline environmental defenders a session that explores impunity and corruption that lie at the heart of many illegal resource exploitation deals. Showing present examples of how corruption often contributes to indigenous land rights being ignored for the benefit of business and big landowners. The session will focus on high-level resource grabbing and corruption driving conflict in South Sudan, criminalisation and sand smuggling in Cambodia, and the struggle of an indigenous community in Ucayali, Peru to secure their land rights in the face of death threats and murder. 

This session will allow participants to gain better understanding the reality of the risks, and the barriers that prevent defenders from accessing justice, defending their rights and making their voices heard. This will also create the opportunity for activists to connect with anti-corruption practitioners, criminal investigators, human rights groups and other supporters to identify key points of leverage to influence companies and governments, where corruption and collusion drive attacks. The anticipated outcome is to establish connections between experts and practitioners from different sectors and to plant the seeds of new strategies to meet the needs of frontline activists.

Multilateral development banks (MDBs) commonly finance projects and activities in post-conflict and weak governance environments at significant risk of corruption and the potential misuse of funds.  Following IACC’s theme of “Together for Development, Peace, and Security: Now is the time to Act,” the MDBs will share insights from investigations of fraud, corruption, and other forms of misconduct in high-risk environments. Topics that will be covered include:

•    What challenges do the integrity offices of MDBs face when conducting investigations in post-conflict and weak governance environments?  
•    How can these challenges be addressed to facilitate oversight and investigative activity in capacity-constrained environments?
•    What insights can be shared through investigations of projects in high-risk environments? How can these inform investigative strategy and tactics to better protect funds?

From Buenos Aires to Tokyo: B20 Policy Actions on Integrity & Compliance Moving From Intent to Action
The B20 is the private sector's voice of the G20 community. It aims at building consensus amongst business leaders, international organizations and civil society regarding global challenges, including on anti-corruption. Over the past months, the B20 Integrity & Compliance Cross-thematic Taskforce has generated – with the contribution of civil society and other stakeholders – ambitious policy action to the G20 in three areas that are central to the fight against corruption. In addition, the Taskforce calls upon G20 members to make a concrete Commitment to Integrity and Ethical Standards (CIES) underpinned by strong efforts in education and capacity building. A few weeks ahead of the G20 Summit in Buenos Aires and the hand over to the Japanese Presidency, this workshops will share the outcome of this work and discuss how recommendations can be translated into concrete action on the ground. Also, how can collaboration between business and civil society be strengthened for greater impact.

Parliamentarians Acting Now in Partnerships
The Global Organization of Parliamentarians Against Corruption (GOPAC) represents parliamentarians from around the world who are committed to tackling corruption. While the corrupt are adapting new technologies and strategies to strengthen their gains, parliamentarians are committing to smarter partnerships across their communities to circumvent corrupt practices. In this session, GOPAC’s regional and national chapters share some of the creative partnerships that are making an impact in preventing and interrupting corruption.
GOPAC aims to highlight the importance of parliamentarians engaging with their constituents and working collaboratively with civil society to raise awareness of corruption issues and lobby for legislative and administrative changes at combatting corruption. It focuses on the representational role of parliamentarians in ensuring that the voice of the people is heard by government and reflected in appropriate anti-corruption legislation.

Social Media, Apps, Blockchain – The Anti-Corruption Heroes of Tomorrow?
Digitalisation has transformed the public and private sectors in many ways, affecting both the speed and scale at which tasks like communication or data analysis can be carried out. This is just as true for the field of anti-corruption, where ICT has opened new doors for the prevention, detection, and prosecution of corruption. While perpetrators get more creative in finding ways to corrupt or be corrupted, so do anti-corruption tools. From beneficial ownership registers, eProcurement systems to distributed ledger technologies, many digital ways of fighting corruption exist. However, are they really that adequate and effective? Designing the future of the fight against corruption also means to know how we best utilize and further develop the potential of digitalization. In this workshop we will discuss the pros and cons of tech-based approaches to anti-corruption, their strengths, weaknesses and lessons learned so far.

The Azerbaijani Laundromat: A Case Study in Journalists and Advocates Partnering to Accelerate Impact in the Global Fight Against Corruption
This session will profile the work of the unprecedented partnership between journalists and civil society activists in the Global Anti-Corruption Consortium (GACC) spearheaded by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and Transparency International (TI). We will spotlight a major investigation in the consortium’s first year that underpins crucial advocacy efforts today: the Azerbaijani Laundromat, by Berlingske and OCCRP, looks into a complex $2.9 billion money and reputational laundering operation via four shell companies registered in the UK. Our aim is to show how global corruption fuels the repression of human rights, the impact achieved through bridging this non-traditional divide, and challenges and lessons learned on the mechanics of this kind of unique collaboration as a model for others embarking on similar partnerships. We will also highlight investigations beyond the GACC, raising similar questions about and opportunities for journalists and advocates partnering on cases of grand corruption. Through this discussion, we hope to identify and engage potential new partners and session participants in hurdles to avoid and ways these alliances can work, while illustrating why they are worth the effort.

The Poorest Feeding the Richest?: New approaches to foster recovery of stolen assets from developing countries and support Domestic Resources Mobilization
It is estimated that 1 trillion US$ illegally flows out of developing and emerging countries per year, instead of being invested into sound infrastructure, education and health systems. In 2017 a landmark decision of a French court revealed the lavish fortune of the Vice-president of Eq. guinea highlighting the need to increase the control of outflows in Africa and inflows in Europe. Even though efforts to trace confiscate and return stolen assets have risen significantly since the entry into force of the UN Convention against Corruption, the amounts returned to victim states still are vanishingly small. As acknowledged in the Financing for Development discourse, accelerating asset recovery bears a significant potential for Domestic Resource Mobilization and can help to finance the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. In the proposed panel, CSOs representative and activists will talk about the impact of an emblematic case such as the one of Eq. Guinea in citizen’s lives. Kenyan and Indonesian law enforcement practitioners and CSOs will exchange on best practices including policy approaches and legislative measures to improve asset recovery. The role of CSOs in ensuring safeguards to prevent new illegal flows and monitor the return of the assets will be also object of discussion as well as the best practices from Indonesia from law enforcement point of view.

ANGLE TO CORRUPTION:
Corruption is one the most important sources of the illicit financial flows undermining the trust into the state institutions and Rule-of-Law principles as well as hindering inclusive growth and sustainable development. UNCAC prescribes the fundamental principle of returning stolen assets and the key role of CSOs in preventing and eradicating corruption. A key anti-corruption tool would benefit from an open exchange between practitioners and CSOs. Effective asset recovery acts as a clear sanction and as a deterrent for future corrupt officials.

TARGET AUDIENCE:
Anti-corruption and asset recovery practitioners, other financial investigators from developing, emerging and developed countries, national policy makers, NGOs as well as national and international donor agencies.  

WHAT IS THE INVISAGED IMPACT & HOW WILL YOU FOLLOW UP:
The workshop will give insights on the importance of asset recovery laying out the impact examples and most recent national and international experiences in recovering and returning stolen assets compare and analyze the pros and contras of different approaches. It aims at inspiring active exchange and producing further searching questions to foster the current asset recovery discourse.
The session report will be publish on the GIZ Intranet News side; also on EGJustice website and network and TI networks on Asset recovery; key messages of the workshop will be fed into the social media like Facebook and Twitter including the partner institutions.

Using International Human Rights to Address Corruption: Proposals for a Mutually Beneficial Approach
 Corruption affects the enjoyment of human rights globally in as many ways as there are corrupt practices. The connection between the two is simple and linear in some cases, in others complex and interwoven with many other governance issues: crime, economic development, business regulation. Might human rights provide a normative and evaluative framework for assessing anti-corruption policies?
The call for a “Human Rights Approach to Anti-Corruption” is gaining traction among states, but what does that mean? Just as importantly, what needs to happen for the call for Human Rights Approach to Anti-Corruption not to become an empty shell, yet another element of agreed language in international agreements?

The aim of this workshop is to assess recommendations for the human rights and the anti-corruption communities to work closer together and connect all the elements of a human rights approach to anti-corruption:
  • What could human rights mechanisms do to address corruption in a meaningful manner for anti-corruption practitioners?
  • What could anti-corruption practitioners provide to human rights mechanisms to improve understanding of the many forms corruption take and the myriad of ways it impacts on human rights?
  • Can a human rights approach to anti-corruption help break the myths and stereotypes (corruption is as inevitable as disease is; human rights protect only the powerful and corrupt) that engender scepticism about the relevance of human rights for anti-corruption?

Film Festival Screening: The Silence of Others
Trailer 
95 mins. 2018

Seven years in the making The Silence of Others tells the story of victims and survivors of Franco’s 40-year crimes against humanity, who continue to fight for justice against state-imposed amnesia of his reign of terror. The film’s rollout in Spain – starting with major Spanish film festivals in October, cinemas nationwide in November and a likely national TV broadcast in the next spring – coincides with the fall of the conservative government.  The centre-left administration is receptive to “historic memory” issues making this documentary the right tool, in the right place, at the right political and cultural moment to catalyse public support for justice.

Post show speakers: José María “Chato” Galante is one of the victims/activists featured in The Silence of Others. He spent his youth fighting for democracy in Spain, earning him a total of 7 years in prison and brutal torture. In 2010 he and former activist colleagues formed an association to fight for justice. In 2012 they joined the Argentine Lawsuit calling for the extradition of perpetrators of state sponsored crimes. Originally from Philadelphia, film-maker Robert Bahar relocated to Spain to make The Silence of Others in collaboration with Almudena Carracedo.

The Nordic Myth revisited
The Nordics brand themselves as having an embedded ethical approach to doing business and hence have no need for strict regulations or policies. But is this still the case when Nordic companies operate abroad, especially in emerging markets with higher risks of controversial practices? Is it possible to duplicate the "Nordic Model" or is this way of doing business only possible within Nordic national structures making it unsuitable for export? This workshop will question the "Nordic Model" and discuss how Nordic business principles are adaptable, or not, in changing environments.

Many companies and countries look to the Nordics for their achievements in lowering their level of perceived corruption – at least according to internationally-accepted ratings – within their own countries. But is this a true reflection of the practices of Nordic businesses abroad? Is this Nordic model an approach to anti-corruption systems that can be shared and copied from one county to another? We will address how Nordic companies deal with operating in countries with different practices and whether this has been as successful abroad as it has been at home. The outcome of the workshop is to share tools and experiences to maintain strong anti-corruption practices in a global business environment, especially in challenging, yet lucrative markets.

1Mdb, the Khmer Rouge and Cambodia’s Hostile Takeover – How Corruption Kills Democracy – the Cases of Malaysia & Cambodia
Over the past few years the Prime Ministers of Malaysia and Cambodia became immensely rich from looting their countries’ wealth, and proactively sacrificed their democracies in their efforts to protect their power and to avoid being held to account.

Following a surprise loss in recent elections former PM Najib Razak, wife and others were charged with stealing millions of dollars from Malaysia’s sovereign wealth fund, 1MdB, and laundering this money to buy high end real estate, yachts, works of art and funding the hit movie Wolf of Wall Street. When the story broke Najib tried to close down the investigations into him by sacking the Attorney General and presiding over attacks on and closure of media outlets and NGOs – a war on civil society.

Following the UN’s biggest peacekeeping intervention, the results of the first ever UN organised elections, which helped bring an end to Cambodia’s long-running civil war, were ignored by the loser, incumbent and former Khmer Rouge cadre Hun Sen. He has maintained power ever since via a coup in 1997 and rigged elections;  his  family have a stranglehold over all economic sectors in Cambodia. In the last two years Hun Sen dissolved the main opposition party and closed down virtually all independent media outlets and activist NGOs. Meanwhile prominent politicians and government critics and have been imprisoned and gunned down. Cambodia is now a dictatorship.

The panel will discuss the threat that corruption poses to democracy, lessons learned and what to do about it.

A Bright Future? Challenges and Opportunities of Cross-Border Investigative Journalism Exposing Corruption
Two years from the Panama Papers, investigative journalism is at a shift. Many promising, larger and smaller initiatives saw journalists working cross-borders, helping each other writing new stories, protecting each other, exposing the corrupt. The impact of these initiatives was often huge.
With this interactive event we aim to start a debate on opportunities, lessons learned and challenges in current cross-border investigate journalism exposing corruption. We will look at how journalists can work in difficult environments, with limited resources, and how we can involve new journalists to join us. We will also aim to look at initiatives to support investigative journalists and discuss the impact that their work has on law enforcement practitioners. Finally, we aim to look at how actors from the public and CSO sectors who benefit from investigative journalism can work more closely with journalists in exposing corruption.
This workshop proposal is a cooperation of GIZ, CiFAR, and GIJN

Corruption and the Post Election Challenge
There are a variety of cases where political parties have been elected on an anti-corruption ticket but have then stalled in action for lack of a coherent and manageable programme or have undertaken an ill-considered programme which can be seen to have failed a few years later. Such cases include Georgia, Nigeria, Uganda, and Peru. Comparable cases have occurred in the City, Province or State level as in Rome and Delhi State. It is high time for anti-corruption movement to analyse past experience and challenges and propose guidelines for such incoming governments which have the power to implement an effective anti-corruption programme.

Managing the Risk of Corruption in Development Co-operation
Recognising the common interest of development actors in fighting the risks of corruption in development assistance, in 2016, the OECD Council adopted a new Recommendation for Development Actors on Managing the Risks of Corruption in Development Cooperation (“the Recommendation”). The Recommendation calls on countries to set up or revise their systems for managing risks of corruption and formulating responses to corrupt practices in the management and delivery of aid. It promotes a broad vision of how international development actors can meet their international and regional commitments in the anti-corruption area, including in relation to the bribery of foreign public officials. 
 
Corruption poses serious threats to development goals and affects the way in which donors respond to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16 of Agenda 2030. The objectives of this session are thus two-fold: (i) identify progress made and lessons learned in corruption risk identification, assessment and mitigation practices, and strategies for effective responses to actual instances of corrupt practices in development cooperation; and (ii) discuss the challenges faced and possibilities to make further progress in strengthening anti-corruption measures in the activities conducted or funded by development actors.

No justice – No peace: Tackling Corruption in the Justice sector as a Critical Condition to Achieve Goal 16 on Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
Article 11 of the UN Convention against Corruption calls on countries to strengthen integrity and prevent opportunities for corruption in judiciaries, and the internationally recognized Bangalore Principles of Judicial Conduct are in place. While many countries have embarked on numerous reforms and set encouraging examples, the problem persists and more should be done to strengthen judicial integrity.

The 2018 Rule of Law index of the World Justice Project suggests that judges and judicial officials soliciting and accepting bribes remains a serious concern in more than half of the 113 countries covered. All efforts to achieve not only Goal 16 but eventually to realize the entire 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda hinge directly or indirectly on our ability to establish the rule of law both at domestic and the international level. This cannot be achieved unless we identify effective remedies for judicial corruption and successfully multiply them across all jurisdictions.

The workshop will seek to get to the bottom of why more than 60% of citizens worldwide believe that corruption and political interference continue to undermine the justice system (Rule of Law Index, World Justice Project).

Against this backdrop, the workshop will explore the secrets of success and good examples in the area of strengthening judicial integrity. Using an interactive circle, the moderator will, through targeted and thought-provoking questions, seek ideas from expert participants and the audience.

Apart from providing a space to discuss local efforts, reforms, successes and challenges in the area of judicial integrity and prevention of corruption in judiciaries, the workshop will discuss how the freshly launched Global Judicial Integrity Network provides opportunities for different stakeholders to be engaged in enhancing independence, impartiality, accountability, transparency and integrity in the judiciary.

The Global Judicial Integrity Network, and by extension the workshop, will seek to contribute to this effort and solicit the active engagement and contribution of civil society and academia in the process. The workshop is a unique opportunity to ask diverse participants about their views on how national and international efforts can be strengthened and how to best use the Network as a platform for cooperation.

Promoting Accountable and Transparent Institutions at all Levels
Promoting public integrity is necessary to achieve SDGs and is key in the achievement of SDG16 to foster accountability and transparency in public life. Such a culture of accountability and integrity is powerful to prevent corrupt practices and participates in the efforts to fight against corruption.
Confronted for instance with the “Lava Jato” case involving public officials and SOEs, commitments and innovative projects emerged to strengthen public accountability and financial transparency. They cover commitments and actions within the OGP, but also national or local public integrity and financial transparency initiatives and reforms. The Network for integrity –14 institutions worldwide working to strengthen public integrity, transparency, and ethics– is a platform to discuss best practices of members & partners.
Discussions will cover presentations of experiments fostering a public culture of accountability. This will be an opportunity to recall the commitments to supporting SDG16.

Time to Clean Up the Act: Preventing Corruption in State-Owned Enterprises
State-owned Enterprises (SOEs) are at the centre of current international attention. With news of SOE corruption cases making headlines over the past years (Petrobras, Telia), the international policy community has made integrity in SOEs a clear priority. This workshop will serve as the platform to discuss recommendations for government, business and civil society to improve integrity and transparency of SOEs. The discussion will concretely feed into the OECD and G20 processes, amongst others, in developing international guidance for governments on integrity and anti-corruption in their SOE sectors. At the same time, it will showcase practical examples from around the world on how SOEs can stay free from corruption and better fulfil their purpose of acting for the public good. The workshop is hosted by three organisations that have made significant contributions to the topic: the EBRD, Transparency International and the OECD who has led the SOE discourse for many years.
