The Rapid-Reaction Anti-Corruption Project: Swiftly Framing Public-Private Solutions

September 16, 2016 -
12:00pm to 2:00pm

On Friday, September 16th from 12:00pm – 2:00pm, the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) hosted 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 included 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. The audience was given the opportunity to ask the panel questions as well as offer their input on the Rapid Reaction to Anti-Corruption Project.
