In order to counter the pervasive phenomenon of corruption, it seems increasingly necessary to develop innovative ways of fostering both public and business integrity and find innovative ways to rebuild the relationship between public administrations and private corporations. From this perspective, the aim of this presentation is to discuss the role that disincentives and incentives play in the fight against corruption and, more specifically, to explore the development of a model regulatory framework that could be used as the basic structure for the establishment of an anti-corruption corporate white list based on transparency and accountability mechanisms.

CFCI Seminars are open to everyone, but prior booking is mandatory.
