Collective Action projects and initiatives
Some highlights of our current work are:
- A five-year project with the Siemens Integrity Initiative that aims to make Collective Action a compliance norm.
- Collective Action guidance to SMEs under the UK Government's Business Integrity Initiative.
- Support for various Collective Action initiatives around the world, including the Metals Technology Integrity Initiative and Banknote Ethics Initiative.
- Two projects to strengthen the evidence base for Integrity Pacts and Certification Initiatives with funding from the KBA-NotaSys Integrity Fund.
- Development, with the OECD and Transparency International, of the High-Level Reporting Mechanism (HLRM) to prevent corruption in public procurement projects. We also support governments in implementing the HLRM, such as on the Bogotá Metro project in Colombia.
We work closely with our colleagues in other Basel Institute divisions, including:
- Outreach among business representatives in Malawi in support of the country's National Anti-Corruption Strategy II review process. Here's why it's important to involve the private sector fully in the development of national anti-corruption strategies.
- Research, surveys and working group facilitation under a PMI Impact-funded project, with the aim of leveraging private-sector action against financial crime in illegal wildlife trade. Please see our quick guide and working paper on this topic.
Highlights of the Basel Institute's track record in Collective Action include:
- Founding and current Member of the Board of the World Economic Forum Partnering Against Corruption Initiative (PACI)
- Founding and current member of the Wolfsberg Group on Money Laundering
- Founder and facilitator of several sectoral Collective Action initiatives, including in the defence, logistics and transport, art trade, finance, transport and energy sectors
