Fighting Corruption through Collective Action in Today’s Competitive Marketplaces
June 9-11, 2009
World Bank Headquarters Washington, D.C.

Businesses using collective action have competed successfully – without paying bribes - in sectors and geographies at high-risk for corruption. This program features successful collective action examples and offers practical guidance for both corporate decision makers doing business in these high risk situations, and government officials responsible for policy and management of effective and corruption-free government finance.

Why this Program is Different

  • This program is practical, not conceptual.
  • Participants will get access to an anti-corruption peer network and the support of leading anti-corruption organizations.
  • Participants are those directly facing business-disruptive corruption issues and public officials fighting corruption in government transactions.
  • Program presenters are experts with "hands-on" collective action and/or anti- corruption experience. The program is presented by the World Bank Institute and an alliance of companies, NGOs and other organizations focused on fighting corruption in the marketplace.
  • The curriculum emphasizes proven business solutions to increase business and to prevent corruption at the source; it does not cover anti-corruption statutes or internally-focused corporate compliance programs.

"Collective Action" applied to anti-corruption involves cooperation among market participants which helps create and maintain fair market conditions.
