Collective Action as a Game Changer – Private Sector Opportunities in the Fight Against Corruption

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Collective Action to combat corruption is gaining traction, but it could be more widespread in most countries and business sectors. The game changer opportunity arises at a unique moment when new governments are elected with a mandate to address issues of systemic corruption. In turn this demands that both the private and public sectors have to be genuinely proactive, and embrace the possibilities that Collective Action can offer as a means to mitigate corruption risks. The aim of the workshop will take a good hard look at how to overcome lack of trust and other dialogue failures between potential stakeholders in Collective Action. As well as featuring positive encouragement through Collective Action success stories from the region, the workshop experts will discuss how civil society, businesses and the public sector can capitalise on opportunities presented by a change in government to signal new forms of sustainable collaboration.
