Weekly news – 10 August 2018

Publikováno: 10. srpna 2018

This week, activists from across the globe spoke with one voice against corruption.

As part of the Civil 20 (C20) summit, more than 600 civil society organisations gathered in Buenos Aires, Argentina demanding answers, and action, to a simple question: When will G20 leaders finally live up to their promises?

Over the last few years, G20 leaders have made more than 60 commitments pledging to tackle corruption, yet very few countries have delivered on those obligations.

At a time when anti-corruption efforts around the world are at a tipping point, G20 leaders must show greater leadership.

Building on the momentum from Argentina, where the Business 20 (B20) and the C20 released two historic joint statements about anti-corruption and transparency, the G20 is under increased pressure to act.

On 30 November, world leaders will have a real opportunity to make good on their promises, as outlined in the final C20 communique to G20 leaders. But they have their work cut out for them.

Will G20 leaders finally step up and crack down on corruption?

We’re marking our calendars to find out.
