Collective Action: Building efficient public-private partnerships – an UNGASS side event
This virtual side event at the 2021 Special Session of the General Assembly against Corruption (UNGASS) explored the scope and possibilities of anti-corruption Collective Action, which the UNGASS Political Declaration 2021 recommends and encourages.
What does Collective Action mean for governments, companies and citizens? Does it work in practice? Is it an efficient way for the public and private sectors to partner? What benefits can it bring?
The speakers explained how partnerships between the public and private sectors are helping address systemic corruption issues in their countries and sectors.
The Basel Institute on Governance co-hosted the event in collaboration with the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs. H.E. Ambassador Stefan Estermann made opening remarks.
The Basel Institute's Gemma Aiolfi moderated the panel, featuring:
- Klaus Moosmayer of Novartis
- Cecilia Müller Torbrand of the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN)
- Pana Ratanabanangkoon of the Thai Private Sector Collective Action against Corruption (Thai CAC)
- Gilbert Sendugwa of CoST – the Infrastructure Transparency Initiative in Africa
