This week on Democracy That Delivers, we are joined by Martina Hrvolova and Ken Jaques. Martina shares a glimpse of her upcoming presentation at the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE) 2019 Western Balkans Regional Conference. They discuss CIPE's approach to identifying and combatting corrosive capital through different governance structures, as countries are at different stages in their development, and the steps they are taking to recognize the threat.
In this episode of Democracy That Delivers, we are joined by Peter Glover, Associate program Officer of CIPE's Anti-Corruption and Governance Center, and special guest Schuyler Miller. Miller recently returned from Trinity College in Dublin, where he completed his Master's Degree in International relations. He joins us to discuss the findings from his research dissertation on the relationship between international organizational input and financial disclosure reforms.
In this week's Democracy That Delivers, we are joined by José Raúl Perales, Deputy Director of the Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation (GATF) at CIPE. Perales and host Ken Jaques discuss the beginnings of GATF's work with CIPE, and how trade and the private sector can work better together. They also discuss the first project the team at CIPE has closed out, and the great successes that have come out of it in Colombia:
"It was a relatively small project, but the impact in monetary terms is 900% the investment that was made to implement the system."
Jose Raul Perales recently did a CIPE Insights video interview about some more projects GATF is currently working on. Check it out: https://www.cipe.org/newsroom/cipe-insights-with-jose-raul-perales/
"You need an infrastructure spine to build an economy," says guest Gyude Moore in this week's episode of Democracy That Delivers.
Gyude Moore is a Visiting Fellow at the Center for Global Development, and former Minister of Public Works for Liberia. He joins Ryan Musser, Program Officer for Africa at CIPE, and host Ken Jaques, in an insightful discussion on the vast field of infrastructure development. They discuss a number of issues, including the presence and practices of leading bilateral lender, China, as well as the current gaps in infrastructure in the African continent and how that impacts the economy.
