Bribery and corruption

Consultation on Phase 4 monitoring of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention


9 December 2014
OECD Conference Centre, Paris


Since the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention came into force in 1999, there has been a seismic shift in the perception of foreign bribery. Fifteen years ago, foreign bribery was not even a crime in many countries. Although much has been achieved, much more needs to be accomplished and the Working Group on Bribery is looking to strengthen the enforcement of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention.


On the occasion of International Anti-Corruption Day and in preparation for the launch of Phase 4 of monitoring under the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention, the Working Group on Bribery organised a consultation with private sector and civil society stakeholders. Discussions were guided by the questions raised in the Call for Comment and informed by comments received separately via an online public consultation.


The discussions and comments received will provide the Working Group on Bribery with further insight into the opinions of the private sector and civil society and will be taken on board, as appropriate, in the development of the Phase 4 evaluation process.

"The true social cost of corruption cannot be measured by the amount of bribes paid or even the amount of state property stolen. Rather, it is the loss of output due to the misallocation of resources, distortions of incentives and other inefficiencies caused by corruption that represent its real cost to society.”

"International Anti-Corruption Day reminds us that we can defeat corruption and we must keep up the fight."
