Visit us at the Conference of the States Parties in Abu Dhabi

COSP8 booth

The Basel Institute is looking forward to seeing many of our partners in the fight against corruption at the 8th Session of the Conference of the States Parties to the UNCAC (COSP) in Abu Dhabi from 16–20 December.

If you're at CoSP, here are some events for your calendar:

  • Friday 20 December, 9am-10am: Our International Centre for Asset Recovery is hosting a side event on Living up to the spirit of articles 43 and 46 UNCAC. The panel, organised by the Basel Institute's International Centre for Asset Recovery (ICAR) and chaired by Oscar Solórzano, will explore how principles of Articles 43 (international cooperation) and 46 (mutual legal assistance) of the UNCAC can provide answers to countries that are victims of corruption and seeking to recover assets through non-conviction-based confiscation. See full details and the concept note here.
  • Tuesday 17 December, 9am-10am: Our Managing Director Gretta Fenner will be a discussant in the Stolen Asset Recovery Initiative (StAR) Day – Opening & High-Level Conversation on Asset Recovery: achievements, challenges and the road ahead.
  • Thursday, 19 December, 5pm-6pm: Gretta Fenner is a panellist in a side event on "Utilization of recovered asset for the realisation of SDG 16.4".

All three events are in conference room CR1.
