The Partnership for Transparency's Anti-Corruption Forum launched in the Spring of 2017.
The Forum seeks to enhance public awareness of the challenges of corruption by convening events with expert speakers and panelists, and with audiences drawn from civil society, government, business, and academia.
The Forum's focus is on strengthening awareness and understanding of today's most pressing U.S. and international corruption issues. The Forum's events, like PTF's programs and projects, are non-partisan.
Objectives: While many organizations and institutions in the Washington DC region host events that feature corruption issues at times, there is no single forum that has this as its key mandate.
Although the Forum will be managed by PTF, a core objective is to partner with many institutions and individuals who share the mission goal of expanding and deepening discussion and knowledge of anti-corruption issues. Accordingly, the Forum’s agenda is not confined to the project working areas of PTF. Rather it will embrace issues of corruption in developed, emerging market and developing countries. It will focus on critical issues from development to public services delivery, to security, business compliance, finance, illicit trade and other topics.
Programs: The PTF Anti-Corruption Forum will seek institutional partners to co-host a number of events each year.
