The International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) is the world’s premier global forum for bringing together heads of state, civil society, the private sector and more to tackle the increasingly sophisticated challenges posed by corruption. The theme this year is "Together for development, peace and security: now is the time to act".
EITI Chair Fredrik Reinfeldt will speak in a session on how to move Towards a Global Norm of Beneficial Ownership Transparency. This session asks how these obstacles can be overcome and what the challenges are at a country level in creating national registers and making them public. Looking further ahead, it asks what is needed to achieve a global norm of beneficial ownership transparency and how can we harness international and national leadership to this end?
In addition, the EITI, together with the Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI) and Transparency International’s global Mining for Sustainable Development (M4SD), will host a session on Screening Hidden Beneficial Owners to Combat Corruption in Oil, Gas and Mining. At this session, practitioners and experts will present the latest research and tools on uncovering and tackling corruption risks using beneficial ownership disclosures and screening mechanisms.
