Overview
Beirut - Lebanon
Organized by UNDP-ACIAC in partnership with the Lebanese Transparency Association and the Lebanese Parliamentarians Against Corruption, the roundtable discussions will take place in Beirut on 28 April 2016 with more than 50 participants in attendance including parliamentarians, civil society representatives, active judges and senior officials, and a number of independent experts and academics. 

The event aims to provide a unique space in Lebanon for open direct discussions between representatives of different political blocks and civil society groups on anti-corruption priorities and challenges. Participants would agree that the country is experiencing socio-political changes that create new opportunities for action against corruption, including the growing role of the youth movements and civil society as a driver of public awareness and action; Participants will also  commit to continue and deepen this dialogue with a view to inform the development of broad strategic directions on the one hand, and identify actionable recommendations for joint action on the other.
