About

The COVID-19 pandemic has created upheavals in society and the economy. There have been fast and massive changes, with much uncertainty generated. Business models have changed, facilitated by digital transformation, which has also enabled people to work and study from home.

Governments around the world made rapid policy decisions and incurred huge public expenditure to fight the pandemic, with procurement of masks, medical supplies and vaccines, and measures to support the economy. Against this backdrop, challenges have to be met, actions plans need to be developed, and new policies and procedures have to be implemented in order to ensure good governance and corruption control.

Join the conference and learn from the insights and perspectives of experts, academics, researchers, industry professionals and practitioners as they address such issues as:

  • What is the impact of the pandemic on governance and corruption?
  • What threats, challenges and risks have to be addressed?
  • Why are the private sector, civil society and other stakeholders crucial and what should they contribute?
  • Why is it necessary to involve the international community, and what is to be done?
  • How to enhance governance and corruption control currently and beyond the pandemic?
