Title:  Corruption: A Global Overview

Speaker:  Laura B. Sherman

This introductory talk will focus on the scope of corruption around the world and the efforts to fight it.   Many regional and bilateral initiatives have been instituted to deal with corruption.   It has been the bane of financial institutions and the focus of international agreements.   A key factor is the important role of civil society in the battle against corruption.   In addition to discussing the general topic of global corruption, Ms. Sherman will provide examples of the activities of her organization, Transparency International, and outline its future agenda.

Laura B. Sherman is Senior Legal Advisor at Transparency International-USA, a non-profit organization focused on combating corruption and promoting transparency and integrity in government, business and development assistance.   She is involved in projects related to government procurement, advocacy before the U.S. Government on expanding commitments by trading partners to criminalize foreign bribery and enforce those laws, private sector implementation of anti-corruption programs and many others.
