Knowledge Sharing

In order to foster better understanding and build long-term bridges among sector experts and practitioners, the team is involved in participating and organizing events on financial disclosure (FD). With increasing attention received especially in recent years, the international community has shown a strong appetite for both accuracy and extensive data on FD systems around the globe. In responding to this demand, the team has been collecting first-hand information to ultimately create a sound centralized database.

Events and conferences are being organized regionally to stimulate debate and create networks of FD professionals.

Past events:

  • (June 2011) "Asset disclosure of public officials in Latin America: Learnings and Challenges"(Santiago, Chile).
    The conference brought together experts from countries in Latin America to share experiences and lessons learned on implementing asset disclosure regimes. The event also served as a first step towards creating a regional network of experts on asset disclosure that can provide guidance, monitoring and enforcement.
