Combatting Corruption: Delivering Anti-Corruption Sanctions Training to Latin America and Caribbean CSOs

Monday, 8th November 2021

Corruption is often seen as a separate issue to human rights and international justice, but it is a key factor, and often driver, of human rights violations and atrocities.

With this in mind, Oliver was delighted to provide a training on the UK Global Anti-Corruption Sanctions regime (GAC) last week to a group of anti-corruption CSOs in Latin America and the Caribbean. The training, organised by International Lawyers Project with the support of ROLE UK, gave participants a clear understanding of the UK’s emerging sanctions regimes including the GAC and how civil society can engage.

The training was attending by a large number of CSOs and diplomats and concluded with a engaging and constructive discussion on next steps.
