The U.S. Experience in Combating Corruption
December 13, 2015 - December 16, 2015
Five detectives from Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau will be in the United States on a 21-day program to explore U.S. approaches to combating public corruption. Through this national program, to include Cleveland, they will place particular emphasis on studying practical approaches for detecting, investigating, and prosecuting corruption. An overview of the criminal justice system, with a focus on corruption in the public and private sectors, will also be provided.
Through meetings with the Cleveland FBI, the U.S. Attorney General’s office, Judge4Yourself, and others, visitors will gain an understanding of the culture and tools used to uncover corruption with an emphasis on real-time investigations, the use of informers, covert investigative techniques, interagency corruption, the role of the press, and grassroots efforts to ensure that voters are informed and that transparency is maintained.
International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program
Each year, over 250 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.
By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
