Panel one - 25 years after the OECD Convention: where do we stand?


This panel will explore the 25-year journey since the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention came into force, delving into its undeniable successes and persistent challenges. Experts from across the globe will dissect the Convention’s profound impact on the fight against corruption, including advancing legislative reforms in dozens of countries, reshaping corporate conduct, invigorating civil society and boosting public awareness. The panel will also address critical issues such as uneven enforcement and the influence of political pressures, the impact of globalisation on the Convention’s effectiveness and how strategies for combatting corruption should continue to evolve over the next quarter-century.
