Advancing the Cycle of Justice: Journalists, Activists, Officials, and Enforcement

12:00 - 13:20
Room 202, Shaw Centre

This session aims to identify National Action Plan commitments essential to supporting in-country ecosystems for exposing and trying transnational grand corruption. Investigative journalists and civil society advocates have made significant breakthroughs in the fight against corruption through a Global Anti-corruption Consortium launched by governments and civil society at the 2016 OGP Global Summit. By detailing real-world cases and bringing together key voices from media, advocacy, law enforcement, and diplomacy, this discussion will highlight how this new kind of partnership can help governments secure justice and advance anti-corruption reform. An investigative journalist and an activist will offer behind-the-scenes details of working a recent case. A government champion will discuss how this work informed official investigations and advanced justice in a grand corruption case and follow on reform. Discussants will also highlight needed actions to ensure the operating conditions essential for civil society to undertake this work.
