Workshop 1.2 Drawing lessons from the implementation and monitoring of the OAS Convention, is this an example to follow?

Coordinator: Marta Erquicia (Transparency International Secretariat)
Contact: merquicia@transparency.org

Date: Thursday 11:30 to 14:00

The UN Convention has recently entered into Force, and the African Union Convention has just been ratified. There are already other international conventions in place that aim at curbing corruption. The first instrument of this kind was the OAS Convention. What makes this convention unique is that is has a monitoring mechanism in place where other conventions can learn and adapt what has worked better in future monitoring mechanism.

The workshop is aimed at participants that are interested in looking at an example of an anti-corruption Convention monitoring mechanism and learn more about what has worked and what has not. We will try to show what efforts, results and lessons have contributed to and resulted from the monitoring process of the OEA convention at international and national level and from the points of view of the government and the civil society.

Workshop 2.2 Exploring and interrogating the genderized impact and approach to combating corruption

Coordinator: Lilian Ekeanyanwu (Transparency International Nigeria)PaperWorkshop ReportPresentation
Contact: lilianekeanyanwu@onebox.com

Date: Thursday 11:30 to 14:00

The workshop will conduct an environmental scan of the interface between gender and corruption with emphasis on interrogating the genderized impact of corruption on one hand and the genderized approach to combating corruption on the other hand. The workshop will use case studies to highlight the genderized impact of corruption (if any). Using case studies, and panel and audience debate, the workshop will highlight the cases of women who have made positive impacts in various anti-corruption reforms and initiatives round the globe, and interrogate whether the location of women in the accountability processes does enhance those processes and improve governance.

Workshop 3.2 Anti-corruption practices in non-renewable natural resources for sustainable human development

Coordinator: Giske Charlotte Lillehammer (United Nations Development Program)
Contact: giske.charlotte@undp.org

Date: Thursday 11:30 to 14:00

Non-renewable natural resources (NRNR) -- oil, gas, precious metals, and minerals -- are in some countries an important source of national income. Yet statistical evidence suggests that they are often causes of political instability and conflict, rent-seeking behaviour, economic inequality, political patronage and corruptive practices. The level of corruption on the NRNR sector, particularly with the most valuable natural resources such as oil and diamonds, is in many cases the key factor contributing to these devastating results. When dealing with this curse, most attention has traditionally been directed towards macro-public financial management. By contrast, little attention has been devoted to the local practices and strategies for transforming the revenues produced by NRNR into sustainable human development.

Workshop 4.2 Informal practice and corruption: How to weaken the link

Coordinator: Åse Berit Grødeland (Researcher, Norwegian Institute for Urban and Regional Research)
Contact: ase.grodeland@nibr.no

Date: Thursday 11:30 to 14:00

The aim of the workshop is to explore the link between informal practice and corruption and to generate a discussion on how it could be weakened. Panellists present empirical evidence substantiating this link, identify opportunities for informal influence, address specific measures taken to over-ride informal networks, and introduce some suggestions for reform. The panellists will explore (1) informal practice and corruption; (2) informal practice and legal frameworks; (3) attempts to combat legal strategies that undermine substantive regulatory and legislative provisions; and (4) ways in which to reduce the negative impact of informal practice.

Workshop 6.2 Are Institutionalized Processes Contributing to Corruption? Determining Best Value in Anti-Corruption

Coordinator: Clifford McCue (Director, Research and Technical Services, Public Procurement Research Center, Florida Atlantic University)
Contact: cmccue@fau.edu

Date: Thursday 11:30 to 14:00

This panel will address anti-corruption efforts in terms of best value by examining the experience of, and incentives faced by, key institutions charged with developing and delivering anti-corruption strategies. The focus is on looking at the successes and failures of past practices to discern why corruption still remains such a prevalent problem in developing countries. There will be an exploration of the strategic control of corruption through an identification of the obstacles faced by a funding agency; a provider of anti-corruption programs; and a recipient nation for those efforts. The panel will also probe institutionalised contributions to corruption through an assessment of best value in anti-corruption reforms.

Workshop 7.2: Defence Procurement Reform and Defence Integrity Pacts

Coordinator: Dominic Scott (Transparency International, UK)
Contact: dominic.scott@transparency.org.uk

Date: Thursday 11:30 to 14:00

Defence procurement reform is a massive issue. Reform requires the following issues be tackled: unnecessary secrecy, widespread use of agents, lack of open competition (including issues of single source procurement and national champions), lack of parliamentary oversight, and lack of external reviews, among other issues. The main stumbling block in tackling these issues is limited political will for change.

In this workshop panellists will present different perspectives on the problem of why defence procurement is particularly vulnerable to corruption, and how best the issue should be tackled, given the stumbling blocks that face such efforts. The debate will be opened to the floor early on to ensure an open and productive discussion.

Workshop 8.2: New Civil Society Initiatives to Fight Corruption

Coordinator: Pierre Landell-Mills (Partnership for Transparency Fund)
Contact: pierremills@aol.com

Date: Thursday 11:30 to 14:00

This workshop's objective is to explore recent initiatives taken by civil society organisations to fight corruption with special reference to Partnership for Transparency Fund (PTF) assisted case studies. The target audience are (i) civil society organisation representatives interested to become actively engaged with public agencies in direct actions to curb corruption; (ii) public officials interested in promoting partnerships with civil society organisations in the fight against corruption; and (iii) academics interested in assessing the effectiveness of new approaches.

There will be five succinct presentations followed by a discussion. The outcome will be dissemination of experiences -- successes and failures -- of civil society organisations in using new and innovative tools and approaches that aim to promote more honest and accountable government, with concrete examples taken from, among others, Argentina, Latvia, the Philippines and Pakistan. Themes will include: (i) partnership to bring together the demand and supply of good governance; (ii) cost-effectiveness of different approaches; and (iii) the importance and difficulty of scaling up successful pilots.

Workshop 8.3 Different Approaches for Monitoring Governance and Transparency at the Local Level

Coordinator: Leslie Harper (Inter-American Development Bank)
Contact: leslie@iadb.org

Date: Thursday 15:00 to 17:30

The growing empirical evidence of the importance of institutions for development has resulted in a rise in demand by international development assistance organizations, the media, civil society, and the general public for tools for identifying problem areas and monitoring progress in governance in their countries. This is particularly key at the sub national level given the fact that local and intermediate governments are playing an increasingly more important role as strategic development agents.

Presentations and debates during the workshop will allow participants to differentiate the benefits of the various approaches for monitoring governance, determine their suitability for producing indexes and comparisons, define end-users and learn how to make better use of measurement tools, among other issues to be discussed.
