Countering Corruption in Emerging Markets

Richard Bistrong CEO Front-Line Anti-Bribery LLC interviewed CIPE’s Frank Brown Value Chain and Anti-Corruption Program Team Leader in a two part series. In the second interview, Bistrong and Brown discuss how collective action by small and medium enterprises in emerging markets can ‘counter the corruption narrative.’ What are the political reasons why foreign leadership might embrace international anti-bribery norms? How can small to mid-sized companies in emerging markets organize the compliance function? How can collective action raise the ‘water level’ of compliance efforts in emerging markets to a serious critical mass?
