4th International Collective Action Conference: How to mainstream Collective Action to achieve a clean, fair and sustainable business environment for all

This short conference report explains and illustrates the main insights emerging from the 4th International Collective Action Conference and Awards, which the Basel Institute on Governance hosted on 30 June and 1 July 2022 in Basel, Switzerland.

The conference offered a platform for participants to re-engage with one another in person, take stock of anti-corruption Collective Action efforts, and exchange on how the private sector, civil society and government can work together better to address shared issues of corruption through Collective Action.

The report includes several infographics and graphic recordings illustrating Collective Action’s central role in corruption prevention and compliance and what different stakeholders bring to the table - from the perspective of governments, businesses and civil society/academia.

It also features quotes and examples from among the 200+ participants, many of whom are at the leading edge of efforts to promote and operationalise anti-corruption Collective Action approaches and tools.
