Corruption is one of the world's most pervasive problems, affecting international trade, environmental protection efforts, human rights, national security, access to health care and justice services, economic development, and the legitimacy of governments around the world. Efforts to prevent or reduce corrupt practices have been just as diverse, and have met with varying degrees of success. The 2013 ILR Annual Symposium will examine the existing domestic and international legal frameworks that have been established to fight corruption and explore how these frameworks can be implemented for more effective enforcement.  Panel topics will include potential reforms of the FCPA, accountability mechanisms for public officials, the role of international aid organizations in fighting corruption, and the future of the global anti-corruption movement.  Our aim is to bring together a distinguished group of experts to identify strengths and weaknesses in current anti-corruption efforts, and to discuss strategies for meeting future challenges.
