OECD Anti-Bribery Convention 20th Anniversary

What have been the achievements and challenges of the Anti-Bribery Convention? What are possible future goals and directions of the Working Group on Bribery to further implement the Convention? How has the Convention helped reduce the influx of bribes in major emerging economies? How is the absence of effective criminalisation of foreign bribery in certain countries still an impediment to effective international cooperation in foreign bribery cases?

These questions and others were debated at a roundtable discussion in Paris on 12 December 2017, on the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of the Anti-Bribery Convention. The roundtable was hosted by the OECD Working Group on Bribery which represents the 43 States who are parties to the Anti-Bribery Convention.

Programme outline:

  • Twenty years of the Anti-Bribery Convention: Outstanding Successes and Achievements
  • The Global Impact of the Anti-Bribery Convention
  • Launch of the OECD Study on Detection of Foreign Bribery. This study looks at common sources of detection in foreign bribery cases, untapped sources which are under or not utilised in foreign bribery investigations, and ways in which these methods of detection may be enhanced.
