londonAn increased urgency is growing around the world regarding the need to confront the deep-rooted problem of corruption.

Prime Minister David Cameron plans to host a major international anti-corruption summit in London in May 2016 that will engage the global community on this issue.

The Wilson Center’s Rule of Law Initiative, in collaboration with Transparency International and Integrity Initiatives International, will preview the London summit and its potential both to refine and re-invigorate the global anti-corruption agenda.

Mary Beth Goodman, Senior Director for Development and Democracy of the National Security Council, will address the United States’ international anti-corruption agenda and its goals for the London summit.

She will be joined by Nick Dyer, Director General of International Development from the United Kingdom, as well as other prominent national and international experts.
