Media advisory: What a Biden Presidency means for global anti-corruption advocacy

Report this content

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, Rep. Tom Malinowki and Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance take part in virtual panel at the 19th International Anti-Corruption Conference on 3 December

President-elect Joe Biden has promised to “re-engage in the world,” including on anti-corruption issues. He has criticized corrupt and authoritarian regimes, pledged to support multilateral agreements to fight corruption by updating U.S. laws and rules and joining forces with allies overseas. He has promised to lead efforts internationally to bring transparency to the global financial system, and he has committed to hosting a first-of-its-kind Global Summit for Democracy that will focus in part on global anti-corruption efforts.

But where will campaign rhetoric meet reality? A panel of elected officials and other experts who have championed anti-corruption efforts will provide insights into what we can and should expect from the new administration.
