Lemarque Campbell will discuss current and prospective anti-corruption efforts that transcend national boundaries when it comes to generating and operationalizing anti-corruption policies and measures within the Commonwealth Caribbean, a region with limited research conducted on anti-corruption topics overall. In particular, he will discuss some of the efforts by the Commonwealth Secretariat to establish and support regional anti-corruption efforts among prosecutors and other agencies. He will also discuss ongoing efforts in various countries to strengthen anti-corruption laws, such as the disclosure regime for public officials.
