Emina Abrahamsdotter, NCG Sweden’s main expert on integrity and anti-corruption, attended the annual 2017 OECD Global Anti-Corruption and Integrity Forum in Paris.

The Forum gathered policy-makers, experts, civil society and academia to debate societal harms of corruption in business and development cooperation and counter strategies. Corruption and abuse of public office are a blight on democracies and a drain on public finances. With trust in government flagging in many countries and voter disillusionment on the rise, raising standards of integrity is more important than ever.
