Fighting Corruption in 2019

Formation du 9 au 20 décembre 2019 - Clôture des inscriptions le 8 novembre 2019

The recent Global Declaration against Corruption (May 2016) bears witness to the continuing importance of this theme on the global public agenda, but also to the impact of globalization on the very mechanisms of corruption. Since the 1990’s, globalization has indeed opened hitherto unknown areas for new circuits of corruption, whereas good governance and regulation of the economy remain, paradoxically, key conditions for development in a globalized context.
In developing economies, globalization has amplified relative obstacles generated by corruption, whereas in developed countries, it has benefitted phenomena such as the distortion of governance, having a leverage effect on sources of pressure on public decision-making. Exceeding the traditional markers of economic corruption, current perspectives on corruption lead to questions of transparency and probity, but also of information and knowledge, of bureaucracy, of organization and independence of organizations as well as pressure groups.
