International experts discuss global principles and trends in suspension and debarment practices
The Third Colloquium on Suspension and Debarment will showcase the broad range of first principles underlying suspension and debarment systems, covering developing trends and potential harmonization of systems worldwide.
Panelists will compare and contrast the foundational purposes of different systems and examine how those principles are put into practice around the globe. Panelists will examine the following questions as applied to any given suspension and debarment system: What are the offenses that are the bases for sanctions? Why are these offenses sanctionable? Who makes the sanctions decisions? Who is being protected by the adjudicative system? Building on themes discussed in the 2014 and 2012 Colloquia, this year’s Colloquium will also examine advice to be given to countries in the process of reforming or setting up their systems.
Join representatives from multilateral organizations, government, private sector, non-governmental organizations and academia for a day of roundtable panel discussions and networking.
