The Carol & Lawrence Zicklin Center alongside the Roxin Alliance and the World Bank’s Integrity Vice Presidency convened two, day long workshops in Philadelphia and Washington D.C. The invitation only workshops brought together leading academics, legal practitioners and professionals from diverse fields to address contemporary issues on institutional and global integrity faced by international organisations.
The first workshop took place on the 18th of July 2014 at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and was titled ‘The Commitment of International Organizations to Institutional Integrity’. The workshop focussed on questions concerning the current and future role and strategies of international organizations in fighting corruption and pursuing integrity in their operations, with a specific focus on the work of the World Bank’s Integrity Vice Presidency. The Roxin Alliance was represented by Mr. Alexander Schemmel, Mr Sherbir Panag and Mr Manuel Espinoza. Mr Sherbir Panag chaired the session titled “Effectiveness of Enforcement in Pursuit of Integrity” along with Ms. Alexandra Habershon, while Mr Alexander Schemmel chaired the session “Integrity Units within International Organisations” along with Ms. Galina Mikhlin-Oliver.
The second workshop took place on the 25th of July 2014 at the World Bank headquarters at Washington D.C. and was titled ‘SMEs and Global Integrity’. The workshop focussed on the particular integrity challenges faced by small and medium enterprises (SMEs) working in challenging environments around the world, and examined the impact of the work of the World Bank’s Integrity Vice Presidency, as well as the integrity programs of sister development organizations, on the SME community. The Roxin Alliance was represented by Mr. Sherbir Panag and Mr. Manuel Espinoza.
