Overview

Corruption plays a pivotal role in many of the world’s most pressing issues - from mass poverty in developing countries to the over-exploitation of natural resources to the erosion of trust in political parties. The panel will identify the main drivers of corruption worldwide and assess the current forms of action to control it, including the role of the G20 Anti-Corruption Working Group. As chairmanship of the G20 passes from Mexico to Russia in 2013, the speakers will outline the ways in which the problems caused by corruption can be addressed and how corruption might ultimately be minimized.
