Second Global Forum on Fighting Corruption and Safeguarding Integrity

On May 28-31, 2001, in The Hague, the Government of The Netherlands hosted the Second Global Forum on Fighting Corruption and Safeguarding Integrity. This followed up the First Global Forum hosted by the United States in Washington in 1999; the United States was cosponsor of the Second Global Forum.

The primary values of international gatherings like the Second Global Forum are the international attention they bring to the problem and the sharing of practical experiences of measures and practices that work, or do not work, to effectively promote integrity and fight corruption. Public reaffirmation of commitment by governments against corruption helps develop and sustain political will of leaders and voters to develop effective national strategies and to implement them through enduring measures to control this age-old problem.
