Sensible advice just in from the Basel Institute on Governance and Transparency International – just in time for the Ukraine Recovery Conference running 4–5 July in Lugano, Switzerland. The conference will see leaders from around the world pledge hopefully billions to finance Ukraine’s post-war recovery and reconstruction.
The recommendations include the need to:
prioritise the leadership selection process and reforms of Ukraine’s formidable anti-corruption institutions, including courts;
use transparent procurement systems for reconstruction efforts;
strengthen asset recovery systems so that money stolen through corruption in the past can be used to help fuel reconstruction efforts.
The Institute of Directors has launched call for evidence in an area that might be of interest:
This inquiry will focus on the impact of governance on innovation, not the full range of factors that influence companies’ decisions and behaviour. The purpose is to explore the extent to which companies’ governance arrangements and the governance framework within which they operate encourage or deter innovation, and to identify good practices that – if more widely adopted – can help good governance to become an active driver of sustainable value creation.

Topical following Oliver Bullough’s ‘How to steal a trillion’:
Author and journalist Oliver Bullough traces Britain’s vital role in the growth of ‘offshore’ money laundering – from its origins in the City of the 1950s, through to its impact today.
In this omnibus edition of the series, he traces the origins of ‘offshore’ back to the sleepy City of London of the 1950s. A moment of inspiration fuses with the shock of the Suez Crisis to create the launch of a whole new approach to finance.
From there, he traces how offshoring developed through Britain’s links to an unusual number of islands – the ‘last pink bits’ on the old Imperial map, and Crown Dependencies, such as Jersey. Next he explores the arrival of Russian oligarchs in the 1990s, and the growth of the shell company.
