There is a renewed international focus on combating grand corruption. In particular, momentum is building for new accountability and enforcement mechanisms to build more integrity in the public sector. On June 3, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime launched the GlobE Network to strengthen international cooperation in anti-corruption efforts, and the G7 Ministers indicated that they will address corruption at the next Ministerial meeting in September 2021. U.S. President Biden announced the same week that the U.S. would make combating corruption a core national security priority, and the U.S. also established a bipartisan Caucus against Foreign Corruption and Kleptocracy. Furthermore, over 100 influential leaders signed a Declaration calling for the creation of an International Anti-Corruption Court.

In this context, it is essential that governments, civil society, and the private sector harness this renewed interest in combating corruption and strengthening good governance to move multilateral engagement forward. To facilitate this, the International Chamber of Commerce and Integrity Initiatives International will host an official virtual side event to the United Nations High-Level Political Forum on 12 July.

Participants will discuss the evolving role of multilateral engagement in the fight against corruption, anti-corruption enforcement, and new opportunities to create a level playing field.

Further details on the session are available in the concept note, and connection details will be shared in due course. If you would like to pose any questions to the speakers, please do feel free to share them in advance of the session by e-mailing externalaffairs@iccwbo.org.
