This Toolkit evaluates foreign bribery and corruption risks for small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and offers an awareness-raising toolkit on the importance of adopting anti-corruption measures.
Based on data collected through research, interviews with SMEs, business organisations and legal professionals in countries Party to the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention and others, the toolkit presents initiatives that will enable governments, business organisations and large companies to better support SMEs in preventing and fighting foreign bribery and corruption.
The Toolkit points to multi-stakeholder collaboration and Collective Action as essential tools to effectively raise awareness and assist businesses, in particular SMEs, in preventing and combating corruption.
Successful initiatives around the world have demonstrated that collaborative multi-stakeholder approaches allow for tailor-made, sector-specific awareness raising strategies. Furthermore, by spreading the costs of implementing anti-corruption measures across multiple stakeholders, they avoid overburdening SMEs.
