The Anti-Corruption Forum seeks to enhance public awareness of the challenges of corruption by convening events with expert speakers and panelists, and with audiences drawn from civil society, government, business, and academia. The Forum’s focus is on strengthening awareness and understanding of today’s most pressing U.S. and international corruption issues.

“The IMF, Public Finance, Corruption, and Civil Society”
The International Monetary Fund’s newly adopted anti-corruption framework has profound implications for emerging markets globally and signals a clear commitment by the institution to make corruption a key priority. In April 2019, the IMF published the Fiscal Monitor: Curbing Corruption, a major report under the direction of Vitor Gaspar, that comprehensively analyzes critical issues of corruption in government fiscal affairs – from procurement to the management of state-owned-enterprises.
