Anti-Corruption Chpt 9 Legal Environment

This is not legal advice. For a start the laws, codes, standards, rules, regulations,  local laws, statutes are vastly different around the world. And often different in and within states and cities and government local regions. However there is some excellent information about the regulations on various legal websites.

How does this apply to you and your events? This is what will be described in the chapter.  I can only give examples from around the world.  As to whether the laws are upheld or just for show to get international funding , well that is an issue the event team will have to sort out.  There is a subtlety here that is overlooked by any writings or websites, but is all too obvious to anyone planning an event.

We begin the journey with the United Nations its Convention against Corruption and the signatory countries.   Next the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. The United Nations Convention against Corruption: A Strategy for Safeguarding against Corruption in Major Public Events (how can this be scaled to events with budgets less than a few million dollars?)   The European Commission and the Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions. From there we go to some sample countries such as Australia, Kenya, Saudi Arabia and others.  We’ll end up with one of the best and well written descriptions of corruption and events the Audit Report 2010 Commonwealth Games in India of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.
