Policy Dialogue: ‘Corruption as a human rights Issue’

Following on from the policy dialogue held in Geneva in April of this year, Ms. Angela Barkhouse of Kroll, Mr. Marc Limon of the Universal Rights Group, and Mr. Faisal Osman of 33 Chancery Law hosted a second policy dialogue, as part of their research into the impact of corruption on human rights.

The informal policy dialogue, held under Chatham House rules, was an opportunity to engage in informal closed group discussion around existing international legal frameworks, emerging cases, and whether victims of corruption can play a more salient role in the prosecution of it.

People invited to attend included: Leading U.K. Human Rights Barristers, United Nations Special Rapporteurs, NGOs prominent in human rights and anti-corruption, Members of DFID, State Representatives from Africa, Latin America, & UK, HMG representatives, representatives of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO), OHCHR, and a Former Head of State.

The dialogue was followed by lunch at 12 a.m.
