Time: 11:00am – 12:30pm
Description: Corruption remains one of the greatest stumbling blocks to democratic governance, power-holder accountability, human rights, and social and economic development. It’s intimately linked to violence, poverty, impunity, and oppression. Nonetheless, around the world, citizens are refusing to be victims, and literally millions are protagonists in nonviolent campaigns and movements targeting graft, abuse and organized crime. In this session we’ll consider alternative definitions of corruption; examine innovative cases (some currently under way); identify common attributes and general lessons learned; and explore together the dynamics of people power to confound corruption and gain accountability, rights and justice.
