Workshop 3.7 Combating Corruption through Private Sector "Collective Action"

Stream 4 Sustainable Globalisation

Coordinator: Michael Fine, Director of Private Sector Initiatives, Transparency International-USA
Date: Friday 14:00 to 16:00
Location: Conference 1

This workshop will describe evolving strategies and practices for private sector anti-corruption engagement, with particular attention to integrity pacts and model business principles within the framework of collective action. The audience will hear about recent developments/emerging trends, from an expert panel currently engaged in private sector anti-corruption initiatives. Presentations will provide views from various perspectives - both developed countries and emerging markets, as well as large companies, multinationals, and small and medium-sized enterprises.

Collective action deals with engaging companies with their competitors in the fight against corruption, as well as strengthening working anti-corruption relationships between the private sector, NGOs, governments, and other stakeholders. The broader purpose of the workshop is to raise awareness of the role that the private sector can play in combating corruption and explore innovative programs that TI chapters and others can integrate into their own work.
