Positioning Collective Action as a Compliance Norm

This project, implemented by the Basel Institute on Governance and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, aims to embed Collective Action in compliance by developing a global norm, bolstering its application, and innovating Collective Action to address demand-side bribery and human rights synergies through three objectives.

First, the project seeks to position Collective Action as a norm by key standard-setting and enforcement institutions. Through strategic awareness-raising and advocacy, the project will encourage targeted institutions to create stronger incentives for more private sector and other actors to engage in Collective Action.

Second, it will equip compliance professionals and Collective Action practitioners with effective methodologies for launching and sustaining Collective Action initiatives through peer-learning and best-practice sharing.

Third, the project will generate innovation in anti-corruption Collective Action in two areas:

  • To address the demand side of bribery, the project will scale up the use of High Level Reporting Mechanisms (HLRM).
  • In response to corporate demands for increased effectiveness of compliance systems, the project will identify ways to capitalise on synergies between bribery prevention and human rights protection through Collective Action.
