How do we trigger change against impunity for corruption?
To win the fight against corruption and promote social justice we must join forces and ensure that those who abuse their power do not get away with it. People pressure, political will and collective action have proven to be decisive factors for positive change – we see that across continents – but risks and challenges for those taking a stand against the corrupt remain immense.
The opening plenary will discuss how the global community can promote greater people engagement to understand the effects of impunity on people, and to ensure security and justice for all, especially for those who stand up and take action against impunity for corruption. It will look at how to hold the corrupt to account when too often it is the corrupt that wield the power, both economic and political.Re-watch Plenary I here.
