Start Date/Time: 
Friday, March 10, 2017 - 11:30
End Date/Time:

Description: 

Are matters about to get worse? Will U.S. military concerns shunt aside good governance, human rights and poverty alleviation to an even greater extent in determining the future uses of all forms of aid? Will increasing amounts of U.S. aid, in its diverse forms, go to kleptocratic regimes? At the same time, is it likely that the new Administration will reduce the scale of Justice Department and Securities & Exchange Commission enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act that makes it a criminal offense for multinational corporations to bribe foreign government officials? Mr. Frank Vogl has been engaged with global economics, banking, governance and anti-corruption for more than 40 years, as a journalist, as a World Bank senior official, as an anti-corruption civil society leader, and as a top level advisor to financial institutions. This event costs $15 and includes a buffet lunch. This event is co-hosted by DACOR and UAA.
