How foreign bribery undermines democracy and human rights: Why more enforcement is needed and victims’ rights should be recognised


Posted on December 6, 2021

In recognition of International Anti-Corruption Day, Transparency International is co-hosting an event with the Global Democracy Coalition Forum, which will focus on the negative impact of foreign bribery on democracy and human rights and the need to remedy the harm to the victims.

The panel will present some of the data on enforcement, examples of the harm caused by foreign corrupt practices and proposals for how the harm to victims should be recognised and compensated in foreign bribery proceedings.
