Virtual Roundtable - Tackling Demand-Side Corruption
Please join the ABA International Anti-Corruption Committee, GW Law Government Procurement Law Program, and American University U.S. and International Anti-Corruption Law Program for a Virtual Roundtable Discussion: Tackling Demand-Side Corruption. The event will be held via Zoom on March 31st from 12-1:30pm ET.

With Russia’s war in the Ukraine, there can be no doubt — kleptocracy is a national security threat. However, U.S. anti-corruption policy has focused almost exclusively on prosecuting companies for paying bribes, with little attention to the kleptocrats.

This virtual roundtable discussion will address the demand side of corruption — legislative initiatives that would allow the U.S. to prosecute corrupt foreign officials, transparency legislation that makes it harder to launder money in the United States, and new ideas on how to make it easier to forfeit the assets of oligarchs and kleptocrats and compensate their victims.

Speakers include:

Paul Massaro*, U.S. Helsinki Commission
Tom Firestone, Stroock & Stroock & Lavan
Jessica Tillipman, The George Washington University Law School
Scott Greytak, Transparency International, U.S. Office
Nancy Boswell, American University Washington College of Law

*Paul Massaro serves on the staff of the U.S. Helsinki commission. The views expressed here are his own and do not represent an official position of the U.S. government.
