We kindly invite you to the conference "Corruption - Behind the Scenes of Today’s Shadow". International Anti-Corruption Day has been celebrated annually around the world on the 9th of December since 2004, in line with the 2003 the United Nations Convention against Corruption. This day is dedicated to highlight corruption and encourage people to prevent it. According to statistics, the opinions of the most common forms of corruption, by the heads of companies and civil servants coincide: nepotism, patronage of members of political parties and bribery. So, are the paths of corruption unknown or do all the paths lead to the same behind the scenes? These and other issues, including the causes, conditions and elimination of corruption, will be addressed in the speakers' topics.
To commemorate the International Anti-Corruption Day, the conference “Corruption - Behind the Scenes of Today's Shadow” will be held on December 9th, 2020 at 13:00 via the Zoom platform. We invite you to register until December 8th by clicking this link. An invitation link to the event will be sent to the email address you provided the day before the event.
We also invite You not to miss Dr. Kristinos Ambrazevičiūtės study presentation "Application of Civil Remedies in Cases of Corruption in the Private Sector". The prevention of corruption in both the public and private sectors is primarily linked to measures and sanctions under public law, and in particular criminal law. Such legal regulation has determined that in Lithuania investigations into corruption and legal measures directed against it have so far been mainly the focus of experts in criminal or other areas of public law, and the investigations themselves have been limited to public law sanctions. Meanwhile, the possible application of civil remedies remained on the sidelines. This study examines the effectiveness of existing civil law norms and institutes in dealing with the consequences of acts of corruption in the private sector also identifying the main challenges facing civil redress, and finally, proposals and guidelines are provided to enable a wider and more effective use of civil remedies.
The presentation of the study “Application of Civil Remedies in Cases of Corruption in the Private Sector” will take place on December 14th, 2020 at 13:00 via the Zoom platform.
