Our 3rd Swiss Global Compact Dialogue focused on the UN Global Compact Principle 10 – Anti-Corruption under the title "Corruption-free business environment – a challenge and chance for Swiss business and society".
A rich panel with high-level experts from the private and public sector, civil society and academia gave an overview of the main challenges faced on how Swiss Business, State and Civil Society are affected while also mentioning how responsibly corruption-free business environments can be created.
The 3rd Swiss Global Compact Dialogue on Anti-corruption took place at the Seepark Hotel in Thun.
Speaker Gemma Aiolfi, Head of Compliance, Corporate Governance and Collective Action at the Basel Institute on Governance, spoke about Switzerland's vulnerability to corruption challenges due to its unique combination of being home to a relatively large number of multinationals as well as hosting most of the world's commodities traders and an SME sector that relies on exporting products all over the globe.
Speaker Christian Hunt, Human Risk, talked about Behaviour Science and how it can support anti-corruption initiatives.
"To deal with corruption we need to change human behaviour. The way we can most effectively change human behaviour is through the use of Behavioural Science." Christian Hunt.
