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.
