Anti-Corruption Chpt 10 Governance

The United Nations Convention against Corruption’s recommendations on the governance of major events are:

  • Accountable structure for the event team management of the event.
  • Clear decision making processes.
  • An external over sight body. This can be adapted to events to have a member of the team responsible for emerging risks that include instances of corruption.
  • Policies that reflect the legal and best practices of the industry and region.
