Tackling Corruption and Bribery Through New Means

Online Event

Economic crime costs more than £193bn per year. Tackling this complex problem requires an interdisciplinary perspective. A seminar series in economic crime invites those with expertise and interest in economic crime across faculties, departments, students and broader community to come together, share ideas, and engage in a collaborative work. Join the University of Portsmouth for the seminar on ‘Tackling Corruption and Bribery Through New Means: The Examples of Economic Sanctions and Private Settlements.’  The two guest speakers will be Jan Dunin-Wasowicz, Associate, Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP, Paris and Dr. Susan Hawley, Executive Director at Spotlight on Corruption, London.

This interdisciplinary initiative is the joint effort of the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Portsmouth Law School, Portsmouth Business School – the Department of Accounting and Financial Management, and the Centre for Innovative and Sustainable Finance. The Risk & Compliance Platform Europe will also be covering this event on its English website.

This seminar will explore:

  • What new tools have emerged in the anti-corruption enforcement landscape?
  • Should corruption be added to global human rights sanctions regimes?
  • Are private settlements appropriate and effective tools to tackle global corruption?
  • Focus areas moving forward
