Seminar on Conflict of Interest - A Fundamental Anticorruption Concept


Seminar on Conflict of Interest - A Fundamental Anticorruption Concept

06 August 2007 to 07 August 2007

Conflicts of interest are a breeding ground for corruption, and there is growing consensus that detecting and managing conflict of interest are critical to curbing corruption. However, policy frameworks and tools to manage conflicts of interest effectively are still rare.

The members of the ADB/OECD Initiative have thus called for a technical seminar to discuss the legal and practical challenges in identifying and defining conflict of interest, the various prevention and enforcement frameworks and tools to address this phenomenon, and lessons learned from case studies from a diverse range of country and sector contexts.

The Seminar was hosted by the Government of Indonesia and held on 6-7 August 2007 in Jakarta.

The proceedings of the seminar are available here.
