The idea is to support working plans in the fight against international corruption through the exchange of experiences in Europe and Latin America.
This Euro-Latin American event to fight against corruption co-organised by EUROsociAL through the FIIAPP and the operating partner CEDDET, was inaugurated by the Secretary for Government Transparency of Colombia, Carlos Galán, who started off three themed sessions lasting two days aimed at generating knowledge and learning to foster the development of policies and public-private alliances in the establishment of commitments to fight against corruption in the private sector.
This activity is part of the transparency and fight against corruption actions provided for by the European Union Cooperation with Latin America Programme, EUROsociAL II, and in the context of the Mechanism for Follow-Up of the Implementation of the Inter-American Convention against Corruption (MESICIC). Likewise, it seeks to consolidate the progress in the region as far as the development and implementation of the Convention on the OCDE Fight against Bribery of Foreign Public Officials and the actions in this area of the UNDP.
The topics suggested by the guest experts include: the responsibility of legal entities, the protection of whistleblowers, pro-ethics lists and registers international standards for corporate ethics and instruments. A final document will be drawn up at the end of the event during a concluding session to establish future lines of joint action.
