OECD Integrity Week 2014


17-21 March 2014 - OECD Conference Centre, Paris

The OECD and the CleanGovBiz Initiative actively support governments and organisations to strengthen integrity, build trust, and fight corruption. The second annual Integrity Week took place from 17-21 March 2014. On this occasion, the OECD hosted multiple public events relating to anti-corruption and integrity. These events brought together stakeholders from government, academia, business, trade and civil society to engage in dialogue on policy, best practices, and recent developments in the fields of integrity and anti-corruption.

17-18 MARCH - European Symposium on Business Ethics and Governance

This symposium was co-hosted by the OECD and the Chair of Law and Business Ethics of the University of Cergy-Pontoise. Presentations by academics, legal and industry professionals highlighted the challenges and progress in ethical leadership in the public and private sectors. Focus topics included ethical values and their day-to-day application, conflicts of interest, corporate compensation schemes, and implementing integrity programmes.

19 MARCH - Forum on Integrity

Organised by the OECD’s CleanGovBiz initiative, the annual Forum on Integrity aimed to advance the conversation on best practices in anti-corruption and integrity-building. The 2014 forum focused on improving co-ordination and co-operation in areas of research, policy and programming. By doing so, governments, non-governmental organisations and civil society may match up with and build upon each other’s strengths in order to more efficiently and effectively progress in the common fight to eliminate corruption and reinforce public trust in all sectors of society.

20 MARCH - Seminar on Integrity in Sports and Major Events

The organisation of sports and major events can present significant challenges to host countries. They require rapid, expansive planning and large investments of money in a short period of time, optimal conditions for potential corruption.

This seminar addressed integrity in organisation, reviewed past experiences, and presented best practices for the future. Participants discused the roles of stakeholders such as institutions, organisational committees, local and national governments, civil society and the private sector.

20 MARCH - Seminar on Promoting Integrity in the MENA Region

This seminar discussed challenges and progress in preventing corruption and promoting strong integrity frameworks in the MENA region with the participation of practitioners from the region. Focus areas included: the opportunities for Codes of Conduct and Asset Declarations to prevent corruption, the role of independent institutions such as anti-corruption agencies and ombudsman offices; and, the challenges of fostering integrity in public procurement in line with the region's efforts to promote open government and join the Open Government Partnership.

21 MARCH - Seminar on Integrity in Lobbying

The OECD has been completing the most comprehensive study to date on risks related to lobbying practices and countries’ efforts to mitigate them. This benchmarking exercise and analysis reviewed the OECD Principles for Transparency and Integrity in Lobbying, the only international instrument addressing major risks in the public decision-making process related to lobbying.

This session presented the key results and lessons learned from the benchmarking and consultation of stakeholders, as well as views from different countries’ experiences in enhancing transparency of lobbying practices and safeguard the integrity of the public decision-making process.

21 MARCH - Compliance Conference

Many countries have introduced new anti-corruption laws and enforced stricter sanctions in the last two years. An international investigation from any public authorities fighting against corruption can be an intimidating process, and a Code of Ethics may not be enough.

Le Cercle de la Compliance, in co-operation with the OECD, held its second annual anti-bribery conference at the OECD. Experts gathered by Le Cercle de la Compliance helped participants understand the authorities’ processes and approaches, discussed how to best prepare, and presented the latest developments to help businesses in the fight against bribery.
