How to root out corruption in our quest to end extreme poverty?

Corruption only makes the rich richer and the poor poorer; it fuels conflict and violence, destroys nature and ultimately hurts those who are in most need.

Despite the benefits that foreign direct investment can bring and the progress made by many countries in a number of MDGs, grand scale corruption, natural resources depletion, illicit financial flows and tax evasion are impeding significant progress in our quest for peace, equality and social justice. But how can we ensure that anti-corruption and transparency take the central stage in foreign aid and direct investment?

The panel will discuss why transparency, accountability and integrity are at the core of human security. The session will design key recommendations for fair and transparent foreign direct investment and for the post 2015 Development Goals.
