Participants will share good practices and their views on the potential and limitations of mainstreaming the anti-corruption and human rights agendas.
This event will also be the occasion to present the Practitioners’ Guide on Human Rights and Countering Corruption, published by the Geneva Academy and the CCPR Centre, to the anti-corruption community: governments, NGOs, experts, practitioners, representatives of international organizations, the media and Nations Human Rights Institutions.
