The Rapid Reaction to Anti-Corruption Project: Swiftly Framing Public-Private Solutions
September 16, 2016 | 12:00pm to 2:00pm
Center for International Private Enterprise
On Friday, September 16th, the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) will host a panel discussion on the need for rapid response in countries where a significant opportunity has appeared for achieving anti-corruption progress. CIPE’s Rapid Reaction Anti-Corruption Project is designed to address this need by deploying a team of anti-corruption experts with international stature to countries in transition. The experts, with NGO, business and law enforcement backgrounds, would be swiftly deployed to countries which have governments newly empowered to address corruption and a strong economic interest from foreign firms previously repelled by corruption risk.
Panelists include anti-corruption practitioners with hands-on experience in Afghanistan and Ukraine, as well as one of the NGO community’s thought leaders on kleptocracy issues. Please join them in a discussion of the Rapid Reaction Anti-Corruption Project, and its promise to deliver a road map for shock anti-corruption reform, framed in terms that voters can understand and based on sophisticated analysis that the private sector and policy makers will respect.
