Our message to the Cameron Summit where heads of government are gathering today in London to discuss next steps in tackling corruption worldwide and where leaders from business and civil society are explaining why they believe more still needs to be done.

The spring 2016 edition of the Ethical Boardroom magazine features an article by the Basel Institute’s International Centre for Collective Action Programme Officer, William Nero, on tackling corruption by way of Collective Action.

There is no silver bullet against corruption: As the UN Convention Against Corruption notes, “a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach is required to prevent and combat corruption effectively.” But what could such approaches entail in practice? In some countries, markets and or industries, bribery is an entrenched and systemic problem that is difficult for any single group to address effectively. In other words, the combined efforts of the public and private sector, civil society and citizens are needed, and all are essential in contributing to a concerted approach, writes Gemma Aiolfi in this piece.
