MESICIC MAKES PROGRESS IN THE CONSIDERATION OF RESPONSIBILITY OF PRIVATE SECTOR IN COMBATING CORRUPTION

On September 11, 2014, during its XXIV Plenary, the Committee of Experts of the MESICIC (Mechanism for Follow-up on the Implementation of the Inter-American Convention against Corruption), delved further into the topic of collective interest "the Responsibility of the Private Sector in Preventing and Combating Corruption."

Participating were representatives of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the Center for Responsible Enterprise and Trade, the Fairfax Group, and the International Bar Association, who gave presentations on their organizations' progress with regard to the topic and engaged in an informative dialogue with the States Parties to the MESICIC.

This dialogue marks the second phase in a four-phase process expected to culminate in the adoption of guidelines regarding basic or fundamental principles or rules to be studied with a view to their incorporation into domestic laws or regulatory frameworks aimed at promoting, strengthening, or securing private sector responsibility in preventing and combating corruption. 

The presentations by the aforementioned international and private sector organizations are posted here.   

The MESICIC is an intergovernmental mechanism, whose rules allow for broad participation of non-governmental and civil society organizations.
