The Basel Institute/GCSP course on Leadership in Anti-Corruption (21-23 March 2016, Geneva) aims to equip participants with an understanding of the particular requirements for leadership when it comes to the effective implementation of anti-corruption policies/reforms.
This two-day programme provides an invaluable opportunity to learn about the latest international & domestic AML/CTF developments, compare and benchmark, discuss fresh approaches to new and on-going issues with peers from UK, Europe and further afield.
The Thai Institute of Directors (IOD) will hold their 5th National Conference on Collective Action against Corruption on 16 October 2014 in Bangkok, Thailand, with Gemma Aiolfi, Head of Compliance, Corporate Governance and Collective Action, taking part in a panel discussion entitled "Public-Private Collaboration: the New Ideas and Experiences."
This event featured successful examples of Collective Action, lessons learned, practical advice, and academic contributions as well as peer discussion, and brought together over 100 representatives from business, government, academia, and civil society.
This workshop was conceived as a result of the increasing use of virtual currency in everyday life. In investigations undertaken by ICAR, it became clear that few jurisdictions had experience or legislation in overcoming the obstacles that could arise in the investigation, prosecution and asset recovery processes.
Dr Vinay Bhargava, Chief Technical Advisor, Partnership for Transparency Fund
The conference (conducted in German, on “Transnationale Korruptionsbekämpfung – bricht das Strafrecht mit seinen Prinzipien?”) brought together public and private sector representatives as well as academics to discuss and determine the limits of the State, in particular of criminal law, in combatting corruption, - an agenda which is increasingly driven and defined by the private sector, where sound compliance has a direct impact on the risk of corporate criminal liability.
