Global lessons on collective action against corruption – The case of Morocco
Collective action offers one of the most effective solutions for fighting corruption. This report aims to facilitate the diffusion of collective action in the Middle East and North Africa and beyond by highlighting factors for success and possible pitfalls in implementing collective action initiatives.
In particular, the report reviews the pioneering experience of collective action in the health, transportation and energy sectors of Morocco. It presents the different stages of implementing such action to promote integrity and analyses the lessons learned. As such, the report provides practical guidance to companies wishing to launch collective action, as well as governments and representatives of civil society, who can facilitate and/or associate themselves with this action.
This work was carried out within the framework of the project “Strengthening business integrity in Morocco”, supported by the Siemens Initiative for Integrity, which assisted Morocco in its determination to strengthen the integrity of companies and create a better environment for foreign investment, international trade and economic development. This project is also part of the long and active collaboration between the OECD and Morocco in the framework of the MENA-OECD Competitiveness Programme and the Morocco Country Programme, with the close co-operation of the Confédération générale des entreprises du Maroc (CGEM). The project also benefitted from the support of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).
