Leaders Panel: New Technologies for Anti-Corruption & Integrity: Perils and Promises
Blockchain, big data analytics and AI are transforming the way of working for governments, businesses and society as a whole. Globally, these new technologies offer a new impetus to combat corruption and foster integrity and transparency. Yet with these promises come unexplored perils, opening channels for illicit trade, money laundering and tax evasion, eroding the integrity of the democratic processes, and reinforcing, rather than resolving, existing biases. The proliferation of data and algorithms has allowed these new technologies to redefine established knowledge and practices, and challenge the moral standards and regulations that govern societies.
 
Seizing the promises and preventing the perils requires clear leadership and vision. Leaders will share their views on the challenges in embracing new technologies to prevent corruption. They will reflect on the role of international cooperation to support governments, businesses and society in leveraging new technologies for a culture of integrity.

Combatting Corruption: The Impact of Tax Information Sharing
Almost 90 jurisdictions around the world have commenced automatic exchange of financial account information (AEOI). While tax transparency and cooperation has progressed steadily over the past decade, the widespread implementation of AEOI is a game changer for tax evaders, including corrupt officials, seeking to hide their assets in foreign financial accounts. Developing countries  have not been expected to implement AEOI as quickly as more advanced economies, but the benefit of AEOI in combatting illicit financial flows can make a real difference for these economies.

This session will examine the role that exchange of information, and AEOI data in particular, can play in combatting corruption, including through inter-agency cooperation, and give the perspective of developing countries in their fight against illicit financial flows

New Perspectives: Culture of Integrity (1/4)
The New Perspectives sessions are organised by the Knowledge Partners of the Forum. Each partner will present for 15 minutes, followed by 15 minutes of exchange with the audience.

Behavioral Approaches to Anti-Corruption: An Integrity Turn?
Organised by the Interdisciplinary Corruption Research Network (ICRN)
Beyond compliance and control, the anti-corruption movement is increasingly focusing its attention on the intrinsic motivations of individuals involved in corruption practices.This workshop aims to present recent findings from the Interdisciplinary Corruption Research Network (ICRN) which reflect this “integrity turn” of anti-corruption, with a central focus on first aggregate results of a meta-analysis on the existing collection of bribery games – providing a practical decision guideline to facilitate the choice and use of corruption games for academics and practitioners alike. This is a chance to bring together behavioral researchers, focusing on micro-level decision-making, with political scientists, interested in the institutional and social dimensions of (anti)corruption, practitioners as well as academics from all disciplines to exchange about recent behavioral insights into corruption, confront them with the latest research on public integrity and reflect on how they can be used for research outside the lab as well as for policy design.

Ignoring Social Norms Can Undermine Integrity Promotion
Organised by Tufts University
This interactive, fast-paced session will explore the power of social norms in sustaining corrupt patterns of behaviour and undermining efforts to promote integrity. Intended for those actively working on integrity/anti-corruption programming,this discussion draws from the latest findings of the Corruption, Justice and Legitimacy project at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. The discussion will:
· offer a brief conceptual framework for social norms, discuss how they are different from other factors that affect people’s decisions, and why the distinction is important for practitioners
· share findings and facilitate discussion on how ignoring or misunderstanding social norms can unintentionally do harm, i.e. exacerbate corruption
· demonstrate a way to test programming ideas for their potential harm
The session will include practical examples drawn from our work across sub-Saharan Africa and provide the opportunity for discussion through the use of causal loop mapping.

Rewriting the Script on Corruption through Mindset Shifting
Organised by Accountability Lab
Integrity Idol is a campaign run by citizens in search of honest government officials. Beginning in Nepal in 2014 and set to reach nine countries across Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Latin America by end of 2020, Integrity Idol celebrates individuals that serve the public good. Seeking to ‘name and fame’ do-gooders in government rather than ‘name and shame’ corrupt officials, the campaign flips the script on corruption and creates role models to support a new generation of more accountable civil servants. Receiving such an award comes with recognition as well as responsibility, important to consider in the context of challenging changing social norms that limit progress on greater public sector accountability.

Parcels Trade: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly ?
The digital transformation has led to a dramatic increase in parcel trade. While domestic dispatches continue to dominate, international parcel dispatches currently grow twice as fast, generating new opportunities for consumers to access more diversified products and for firms of all sizes and origins to expand customer reach. However, increased volumes of smaller value goods also pose new challenges for border agencies, making it more difficult to monitor and enforce standards and to implement risk assessment strategies.
 
This session will focus on how to address these challenges in ways that support business growth and consumer welfare potential of parcels trade while minimizing risks of fraud and illegality.

Data Analytics: Taking a Byte Out of Corruption
Data is transforming the ways governments, companies and civil society detect corruption and fraud. Risk managers, compliance officers and auditors in both governments and companies are using artificial intelligence, machine learning and data analytic techniques to identify bad actors and respond quickly with investigations and preventive actions. NGOs and investigative journalists, such as those behind Brazil’s “Lava Jato” case and the Panama Papers, have developed innovative tools to analyse data and bring to the surface hidden patterns of corruption, fraud, waste and abuse. The policies, strategies, infrastructure and skills developed by governments to leverage these new approaches have much in common.
 
This session will explore the commonalities, as well as success factors and pitfalls to avoid and will offer insights from sectors for creating effective strategies and tools to leverage data and new technologies to fight corruption and fraud.

Dirty Money as a Livelihood
Illicit financial flows (IFFs) are a global phenomenon and yet their economic, social and stability impact is particularly evident in high vulnerability countries contexts, or countries that rely on natural resources and already grapple chronic fragility and episodic conflict. IFFs have been known to strip these countries of the essential development resources and have potential spill-over effects, such as increased instability and violence. A recent OECD report, IFFs: The Economy of Illicit Trade in West Africa has found that the distinction between licit and illicit activities is often blurred, and that financial exclusion is a leading driver of IFFs.
 
This session will discuss how illicit criminal activities interact with the economy, security and development of developing and transition countries and look at policy approaches that account for IFFs’ dynamic nature and complex links across source, transit and destination countries.

Residency for Sale? Mitigating 'Golden Visa' Abuse
Golden visas have long offered foreign citizens residence rights in exchange for local investment opportunities. Otherwise known as “resident-by-investment and citizenship-by-investment schemes” (RBI/CBI schemes), these programmes generate substantial funds with important implications for the economy of countries around the world. In recent years however, these schemes have been called into question because of their exposure to abuse and exploitation by those with funds obtained under dubious means, and have become victim to corruption risks and other serious economic crimes. These risks include buying protection to avoid criminal convictions, tax evasion and money laundering.
 
This session will discuss the corruption risks undermining RBI/CBI schemes, and explore how governments can better mitigate these risks using appropriate policy responses.

Fintecgrity: Leveraging Fintech for Enhancing Integrity
Organised by NDB (New Development Bank)
The session deals with use-cases from BRICS member countries deploying fintech solutions (particularly block-chain) for promoting integrity in public finance. These cases, from Brazil, China and India deal with various ways in which the distributed ledger technology applications are being used for enhanced transparency of information disclosure, land record management and prevention of tax system abuse. In particular, the session is expected to focus on learning from deployment of pilot projects of these use-cases and the aspects that need consideration for full-scale roll-out of fintech solutions for stated purpose.

AI for Anti-Corruption: Potential, Pathways, and Challenges
Organised by The Future Society
AI technologies hold a great potential to detect fraudulent behaviors and systems, and to improve transparency. However, as these systems scale, major challenges are appearing in terms of ethics, governance, and risk management. As such, the role of governance becomes increasingly centered on the need to strike the right balance between capturing the upsides of the AI revolution, while mitigating the downside risks. The Future Society will host a debate with two practitioners to discuss two AI use-cases related to anti-money laundering and price monitoring for anti-corruption investigation. The debate will focus on the innovation potential, ethical risks, adoption challenges, and how the three are inextricably imbricated. Overall, the discussion will aim to deliver actionable insights to policy-makers, business and civil society leaders on the use of AI-powered technologies for anti-corruption and integrity.

 What Cryptocurrencies Mean for Political Finance?
Organised by International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA)
While the ICT can be a major driver to increase transparency and accountability in political finance, it can also pose new regulatory challenges. For example, the emerging use of cryptocurrencies can have a profound effect on the integrity of politics for better or worse. Depending on the design, some cryptocurrencies could make it almost impossible to identify the sources and destinations of the transaction. Cryptocurrencies could be exploited to circumvent many existing political finance regulations such as donation bans from foreign and anonymous sources. International IDEA and the UNODC will launch a report that assesses current state of cryptocurrencies, particularly focusing on their potential implications for political finance regulation and monitoring. Based on the findings of the report, this session will discuss challenges and opportunities brought by cryptocurrencies as well as explore policy options for electoral management bodies and anti-corruption agencies.

Regulation should incentivise and enable innovation and seek to maximise shared benefits, while protecting from and mitigating the potential malicious use of new technologies. Governments and regulators are using a number of approaches to stimulate innovation and are embracing new technologies for better regulation. They can use these technologies to improve transparency and stakeholder engagement processes like public consultations, and further understand citizens’ needs and preferences. However, keeping up with the pace of new technologies as well as tackling ethical questions, for example linked to regulating AI or data privacy, remain challenging.

The session will discuss challenges, map different approaches, and highlight some experiences in regulating new technologies for better societies.

Non-trial Resolutions of Foreign Bribery Cases: A New Study
Non-trial resolutions, often referred to as settlements, have been the predominant means of enforcing foreign bribery and other related offences since the entry into force of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention 20 years ago. The last decade has seen a steady increase in the use of coordinated multi-jurisdictional non-trial resolutions, which have, to date, permitted the highest global amount of combined financial penalties in foreign bribery cases.
 
This session will present and discuss the main findings of the OECD Working Group on Bribery study on the use of non-trial resolutions to resolve foreign bribery cases, as well as the challenges associated with these powerful law enforcement tools and the good practices that can be implemented to address them.

Social Media: The False Friend of Democracy?
The advent of social media seemed to promise easier access to information and alternative sources, which would in turn facilitate collective action and empower civil society. However, more recent evidence suggests that social media can have a negative impact on political systems and public policy when not used in the public interest. Business models can adapt to the rise of social media by targeting users to sway public opinion, generating bias towards political messages and campaigns. This creates online echo chambers and fuels political polarisation. Moreover, the issues of information overload and fake news lead to increasing disinformation, distrust and political paralysis, undermining accountability. Our reality is neither a golden age or a dark age of social media. We can address these challenges by drawing from examples of responsible business conduct, as well as government initiatives and regulations.

This session will look at how to promote integrity and an evidence-based decision-making process in social media, politics and elections.

The Devil's in the Data: Data Integration and Anti-Corruption Research
Organised by C4Ads
Corruption leaves a trail. Whether incorporating a shell company, chartering a yacht, or suing a former business partner, the actions that enable grand corruption cannot avoid creating documentation for researchers, citizens, and authorities to follow up on. C4ADS follows this trail by bringing together disparate sources of data, such as vessel location reports, bills of lading, and corporate registration documents. Bringing data science to bear helps us make these data sources to "talk" to each other, and enables our analysts and partners to unearth significant findings, while enforcement partnerships open the door to global actions. The session will showcase this approach through a recent publication and collaborative investigative project that brought together civil society organizations, enforcement authorities, and journalists, demonstrating how data-driven methodologies can produce not only academic insight, but also actionable pathways for enforcement.

National Oil Companies: New Database to Bolster Governance
Organised by Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI)
State-owned enterprises (SOEs) play a massive role in the global oil and gas industry and the economies of many countries. Some of these companies have developed strong corporate governance and financial returns. Many, however, have struggled with performance and integrity. The OECD recommends “systematic benchmarking” as a key to good governance of SOEs, but a lack of cross-cutting data has traditionally made this difficult in the oil sector. The Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI) will launch the largest free public database of national oil company financial, operational and performance data, covering more than 70 SOEs worldwide. The database will provide SOE executives, government officials, journalists and researchers with comparative information to facilitate benchmarking, goal-setting and reform efforts. Session attendees will have the opportunity to see the first-ever in-person presentation of the database and associated findings, which will dramatically reinforce public understanding of these complex giants.

 Turning Company Ownership Information Into Accountability
Organised by Transparency International
In recent years, large-scale scandals such as the Panama Papers have clearly shown the direct relevance of data on the real owners of corporate vehicles and trusts – the ultimate beneficial owners –for the prevention, detection and sanctioning of corrupt activities. The call for beneficial ownership information to be public has become a fixture of the global anti-corruption agenda. As a first cohort of countries starts to make beneficial ownership data publicly available, this session will look at the next frontier: how to more effectively use this data for anti-corruption accountability. Transparency International will present findings of a new report, produced jointly with the Tax Justice Network, which looks in depth at issues of beneficial ownership data authentication and consistency, as well as real-life examples of corruption and money-laundering red flags which can be identified through the analysis of beneficial ownership data.

Responsible Lobbying: Aligning Profit with the Public Good
Today, compliance programmes and sustainability initiatives are common features in large businesses around the globe. Integrating responsible business conduct and anti-bribery measures into company practices show corporate commitment to a better society. Yet, sustainability commitments and commercial interests often seem to be pulling companies in opposite directions, affecting the way they engage with governments. This remains a pressing issue, with widespread perceptions that companies favouring their interests over broader long-term economic, social and environmental goals have too much influence in shaping public policies. Likewise, while lobbying regulations exist across OECD countries, responsible lobbying goes beyond integrity and transparency of lobbying practices. Few incentives exist to motivate companies to lobby “responsibly”, that is, argue for their business interests without going against the public interest.
This session will explore how companies can mainstream responsible lobbying practices into everyday business practices. It will also examine how governments can support company efforts to influence responsibly.

Risky Business: Corruption in Privatisation
Technology has transformed the privatisation landscape. The process is affected, inter alia by the digitalisation of the economy, which has removed the rationale for state ownership in a number of sectors by laying them open to market competition. This has also put a fresh emphasis on a long-standing problem: the transfer of assets from public ownership to private ownership enables incentives for self-profit among political decision makers, SOE corporate insiders and the ultimate buyers of assets. Even more so, as privatisation becomes steadily more dependent on outside advisors, the risk of conflicts of interest also comes to the forefront.

This session will identify the main areas of risk for corruption in the privatisation process and discuss good practices in mitigating them.

Future Tense: New Technology and the Fight Against Corruption
Does cutting-edge technology help or hinder criminal corruption investigations? On the one hand, the blockchain underlying cryptocurrencies lets investigators follow the money trail easily. Artificial intelligence can be used to analyse large amounts of evidence. It can also predict and detect corruption and money laundering. On the other hand, anonymity in using some cryptocurrencies are said to hinder the identification of the real owners of assets. Cryptography can hamper the seizure and confiscation of cryptocurrencies and encryption can stymie authorities’ efforts to intercept communications.

This session will examine new technologies’ impact on detecting and investigating corruption, and explore solutions for overcoming challenges.

New Perspectives: Building an Integrity System (4/4)
The New Perspectives sessions are organised by the Knowledge Partners of the Forum. Each partner will present for 15 minutes, followed by 15 minutes of exchange with the audience.

What does it take to be an MP for 30 minutes?
 Parliamentary Dilemmas on Integrity and Anti-Corruption.
Organised by OSCE/ODIHR
The Session aims at highlighting how integrity and anti-corruption standards for elected members of parliaments are constantly changing over time, with the need for parliaments to change the rules governing their behaviour as to avoid the risk of increasing the damaging gulf between public expectations and parliamentary conduct. Tools to promote institutional integrity, such as the adoption of codes of conduct, can enhance democratic governance and improve accountability to the society. Through the use of tailored case studies and the support of a Member of Parliament, the Session will encourage an interactive brainstorming exercise with all participants on selected integrity dilemmas that parliamentarians might face during their functions, discussing specific country practises and general approaches. The Session will also benefit from the findings of the upcoming Second edition of the OSCE/ODIHR Background Study on Parliamentary Integrity, as well as from the ODIHR experience in supporting national parliaments across the OSCE region in the adoption of parliamentary integrity mechanisms in more than 15 countries, also encouraging a broader reflection on the relationship between integrity and anti-corruption approaches.

Helping Local Business Benefit from Tech Innovation
Organised by The Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE)
Highly complex and innovative technologies are revolutionizing how large companies in sophisticated markets battle corruption. Smaller firms in emerging markets struggle to employ these same advances due to high costs and local operating constraints. Businesses that operate in countries with high levels of corruption often have the least access to innovative systems. In those countries, in order for effective anti-corruption efforts to be sustainable, it is crucial for family-run to mid-sized firms to embrace integrity, compliance and public monitoring regardless of system sophistication. The Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) has two partners working in this area. The Thai Institute of Directors’ Coalition Action Coalition Against Corruption and Institut arabe des chefs d’entreprises of Tunisia have developed mechanisms for integrating local businesses and their technologies into the fight against corruption. Globally, CIPE works at the intersection of democratic and market development supporting local businesses to advocate for reforms to reduce corruption and hold government accountable.

However, in a once in thirty year, root-and-branch review, the government has commissioned research to explore how to take it to the next level: institutional integrity. This research was undertaken by the Building Integrity Programme (‘BIP’), a centre within Blavatnik School of Government, Oxford University, in conjunction with the Australian and New Zealand School of Government. BIP has developed a novel framework for conceptualising and evaluating the integrity of public institutions. This framework starts from understanding integrity as an institutional quality, and only derivatively as a quality of public officers.
This panel present the results of this evaluation, and its recommendations to improve the values, code of conduct, embedding practices, invigilating mechanisms and integrity institutions of the APS. In particular, we explore the value of ‘stewardship,’ the challenges of promoting integrity in a devolved environment, and the need for twin ‘integrity commissions.’

Review of the 2009 Anti-Bribery Recommendation: Engaging Civil Society and the Private Sector
As part of the review process of the 2009 Anti-Bribery Recommendation, launched in 2018 by the Working Group on Bribery – the 44 countries Party to the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention. The Anti-Bribery Convention is the first and only international anti-corruption instrument focused on the ‘supply side’ of the bribery transaction. When they adopted the Anti-Bribery Recommendation in 2009, Parties to the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention sought to reinforce the Anti-Bribery Convention standards and their efforts to prevent, detect and investigate foreign bribery. The Recommendation contains provisions for combating small facilitation payments, protecting whistleblowers, improving communication between public officials and law enforcement authorities, and includes the OECD Good Practice Guidance on Internal Controls, Ethics and Compliance. 
 
This session will seek the views of NGOs and companies to ensure that the Anti-Bribery Recommendation remains relevant and continues to respond to the challenges of fighting foreign bribery.

Unequal Footing: Gender & Integrity
Improving gender equality across societies has become a global priority. Despite the numerous movements for better equality, the gender agenda continues to fall victim to insidious forms of corruption, including sextortion and harassment. Moreover, corruption’s impact on women denies them access to vital public services, and disproportionately affects their participation in political processes. Given that gender issues make up a crucial part of policy debates, failing to incorporate integrity into the discussions threatens to derail equitable progress.  
 
This session looks at how governments, companies and NGOs can integrate the gender and integrity agendas for better policy outcomes.

Water Integrity: Filtering Out Corruption
More than 40% of the world’s population currently lives in water-stressed river basins, and water demand will rise by 55% by 2050. The significant investment required to renew and upgrade infrastructure is estimated at USD 6.7 trillion by 2050 for water supply and sanitation. Increasing water demands and competition, institutional fragmentation in the water sector, monopoly in water services provision and capital intensive water investments puts water at a high risk of corruption, especially when combined with weak transparency, accountability and participation, lack of independent media and social and political instability. Annual financial losses to the sector due to corruption have been moderately estimated in excess of USD 75bn. Ultimately, corruption puts development and its sustainability at jeopardy and the achievement of the SDGs will take much longer and at a much higher cost, if accomplished at all.

This session will examine social and technological innovations to promote integrity in water in developed and developing economies.

Rebooting Anti-Corruption and Integrity
After a quarter-century of anti-corruption and integrity efforts, which has brought international legal instruments, and designated institutions, programmes and conferences, corruption is still present in the lives of millions of people. A growing chorus has called for a reboot of how we should combat corruption and promote integrity. In this session, experts will take stock of the lessons learned in the global fight against corruption and reflect on the blind spots in the current discourse and practice. With a focus on closing the implementation gap, they will also suggest innovative approaches and avenues to deliver on the promises of integrity.
