Collective Action Conference 2018: Evolution to Revolution

The Basel Institute on Governance held its third biannual Anti-Corruption Collective Action Conference on 14-15 November 2018 in Basel, Switzerland. The theme was "Evolution to Revolution".

Over 200 participants from 40 countries across five continents were present, including representatives from 95 businesses of all shapes and sizes, government and public sector officials, key members of international organisations and financial institutions, lawyers and law enforcement experts, academics and civil society activists.

All came together to share their wide-ranging experience in using Collective Action to tackle corruption and prevent bribery. 

The 2018 conference reviewed the evolution of the concept of multi-stakeholder approaches to tackling corruption. It also looked to the future with a view to establishing Collective Action as a go-to anti-corruption tool for companies who want to engage with others in revolutionary ways to stop bribery.

In doing so, the conference built on the previous two events, which looked at success factors of Collective Action and explored the different Collective Action formulas employed so far.
