OECD Integrity Week and Global Anti-Corruption and Integrity Forum (GACIF)

The Basel Institute is pleased to be a Knowledge Partner to 2024 OECD Global Anti-Corruption and Integrity Forum. Members of our Private Sector team will be present during the Forum and entire OECD Integrity Week.

Look out for:

1. Addressing governance and corruption risks in infrastructure development through Collective Action

Our Knowledge Partner session will explore the role of Collective Action approaches, bringing together public and private sectors and civil society, in safeguarding infrastructure from corruption risks and increasing transparency and accountability.

Vanessa Hans will moderate a panel discussion featuring:

  • John Hawkins, Programme Director, CoST – The Infrastructure Transparency Initiative
  • Hentie Dirker, Chief ESG & Integrity Officer, AtkinsRéalis
  • Kaunain Rahman, Business Integrity Specialist, Transparency International

26 March | 09:30–11:00 CET | Auditorium | Live streaming available (register here)

2. Tackling corporate corruption together: harnessing the power of peer learning

Vanessa Hans will speak at this side event, which explores the transformative impact of peer learning in fostering a corporate culture of integrity and preventing corruption.

Specifically, the session will delve into innovative initiatives like Compliance Without Borders, where collaborative efforts between state-owned enterprises and the private sector have yielded practical and concrete organisational change in anti-corruption compliance.

25 March | 16:00–17:30 | Room CC18

3. Workshop on assessing corporate anti-corruption compliance measures

Vanessa Hans and Lucie Binder will participate in this OECD-led workshop, including by preparing a background paper and facilitating one of the breakout sessions.

This workshop will take stock of approaches and methodologies used for assessing corporate anti-corruption compliance measures, and to examine the challenges faced when assessing the effectiveness of corporate anti-corruption compliance.

The topic is a vital one, considering that the 2021 OECD Anti-Bribery Recommendation encourages law enforcement and other government agencies to provide guidance on assessing the adequacy and effectiveness of corporate anti-corruption compliance measures when using incentives for fostering anti-corruption compliance.

26 March | 09:00–16:00 | Room CC7

4. Anti-Corruption Leaders Hub

Gretta Fenner will participate in and moderate a session of the Anti-Corruption Leaders Hub, an annual meeting of corporate Chief Compliance Officers and anti-corruption and integrity leaders from government and civil society.
