Event description
Frontline perspectives on the value and limits of locally-led approaches to addressing corruption.

About this event

Corruption persists because it suits the interests of powerful players, and because anti-corruption initiatives often fail to unlock the political-economy drivers that hold corruption in place.

Our aim with this event is to contribute to an open, ongoing and globally inclusive conversation about the value, and limits, of locally-led approaches to unlocking the drivers of corruption, and how such approaches can best be supported.

We will do this by facilitating a conversation about countries’ policy journeys, the implementation and impact of policy commitments, the value of external assistance, and the role that Global Summits can play in advancing effective and locally-led approaches to tackling corruption.

Our hope is that such conversations - which put the first-hand experience of people on the front lines of the fight against corruption center stage - will increasingly inform policy commitments and investments to address corruption, so that they contribute to effective anti-corruption initiatives, with strong local leadership.
