Compliance, Transparency, and the fight against Corruption are increasingly high priorities for the World Bank operations and funded projects around the world, with the Bank increasingly using the full array of tools, including sanctions, debarment, voluntary disclosure policies, and compliance monitoring, to respond to past misconduct and prevent future infractions.  Join IIEL for a panel discussion about the World Bank’s global Anti-corruption, Compliance & Transparency Priorities.

The Panel will feature Pascale Dubois, the World Bank’s Vice President of Integrity; Frank Heemskerk, World Bank Executive Director representing the constituency of Armenia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Georgia, Israel, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, The Netherlands, Romania and Ukraine and himself the former Trade Minister for the Netherlands; and Ron Machen, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia and Partner at WilmerHale with a focus on government enforcement actions, corporate and congressional investigations, compliance monitoring, and general business litigation.  The event will be moderated by the IIEL’s own Executive Director and former U.S. Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade, Grant Aldonas, and IIEL Senior Distinguished Fellow and WilmerHale partner, Naboth van den Broek.

This event, which is co-sponsored by WilmerHale, will be open to the public.

Please note that the event will also serve as the Special Kick-off Event for the IIEL’s 2018 International Economic Law Colloquium (IELC).
