Latvia to host UN corruption discussion with Poland and Lithuania

Take note – story published 2 years ago

Latvia, alongside Lithuania and Poland, will be hosting a discussion at the UN General Assembly Special Session on Corruption this week, which you will be able to watch here on LSM.

"With increasing understanding among societies of the damages that corruption does to individuals and societies as whole, the calls to ensure integrity of public officials and public institutions grow louder with day. At the same time, the States are interested in finding sustainable solutions to prevent and fight corruption," says a preview by the Latvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In this side-event the global perspective on enhancing integrity will be given by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Senior Anti-Corruption Adviser, Tim Steele.

Latvia will share how the internal control system for public institutions works. Poland will share its expertise on conducting e-learning courses for public officials. Lithuania will present the concept behind its Integrity Academy and the progress achieved since its launch in 2020.

The event will be moderated by Permanent Representative of the Republic of Latvia, Andrejs Pildegovičs and will last for 60 minutes.

It takes place virtually on 2 June 2021 (at 13:00 New York time 20:00 Rīga time) on the Zoom platform but will also be livestreamed on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook channels for the general audience. As previously stated, we'll carry a stream right here on this page, too, if you'd like to follow along.

The event is co-organised with Lithuania and Poland, in cooperation with UNODC.
