Alternatives to prosecution, case selection and victim compensation

  1. Martha Chizuma, Director-General of the Anti-Corruption Bureau, Malawi

The dilemma of case selection in a pervasive corruption environment

Christopher Stone, Professor of Practice of Public Integrity, Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford, United Kingdom.

Effective investigations and prosecutions are crucial elements in the fight against corruption, yet they raise special questions about case selection and victim compensation that can be especially difficult. 
This webinar will explore the particular challenges in determining the public interest in these cases, the application of principles relating to case selection and the prioritisation, and how prosecutions might facilitate compensation to large groups of people victimised by corruption involving large corporations and members of their own governments.
The webinar will reference some of the ongoing work and outputs from the Chandler Sessions on Integrity and Corruption comprise a group of senior leaders of anti-corruption institutions, academics, and expert journalists who work collaboratively sharing experiences, debating the effectiveness of policy responses, and developing a new set of strategies for strengthening integrity in government institutions and dislodging entrenched corruption. More information on the Sessions can be found on their website - Chandler Sessions on Integrity and Corruption
This webinar will be of particular interest to those prosecutors who are involved in the policy-making processes within their organisations. However, it will also be of relevance and interest to all prosecutors who are engaged in the prosecution of corruption cases.
This one-hour webinar will be held in English and no interpretation will be provided. All attendees will receive a certificate of attendance. The webinar is open to all IAP organisational and individual members.
This webinar is the second of two webinars on the theme of Rethinking Anti-Corruption Efforts. The first webinar on Developing New Strategies to Tackle Corruption took place on Thursday 14 March 2024. A recording of the webinar is available for IAP members via the IAP website.
