Streamed live in March 2019 (from 7:20:06). Re-booting anti-corruption & integrity. After a quarter-century of anti-corruption and integrity efforts, which has brought international legal instruments, and designated institutions, programmes and conferences, corruption is still present in the lives of millions of people. A growing chorus has called for a reboot of how we should combat corruption and promote integrity. In this session, experts will take stock of the lessons learned in the global fight against corruption and reflect on the blind spots in the current discourse and practice. With a focus on closing the implementation gap, they will also suggest innovative approaches and avenues to deliver on the promises of integrity.

Speaking with Capacity4DevCapacity4Dev during the European Development Day 2015, Heather warned that developing indicators to measure corruption may not be possible. She sees a more realistic solution for measuring corruption as one that encompasses multiple indicators into overall baskets, rather than considering each indicator individually and out of context.
