The corrupt are clever and adaptable. Thus, anti-corruption efforts must continuously adjust in order to ensure that efficiency and integrity in government is maintained. Two investigative bodies, New York City’s Department of Investigations (DOI) and Singapore’s Corruption Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB), embody both the innovation and persistence necessary to serve as watchdogs for their respective communities. Singapore is internationally recognized as a country with zero-tolerance for corruption and Singapore’s CPIB is a global success story in state-level efforts to fight corruption. Similarly, DOI has a reputation of using innovative approaches that lead to high-profile arrests and the proactive monitoring of corruption vulnerabilities. DOI is uniquely positioned to oversee all city agencies and employees, including the NYPD, expanding the responsibility of the agency to address corruption and systemic failures at all levels of city government. This event will highlight the success of the anti-corruption agencies of two of the world's leading cities: Singapore and New York. Welcoming both CPIB and DOI to Columbia University will serve as an opportunity to exchange ideas and best practices. What can both institutions teach the world about corruption control? This event is co-sponsored by the Urban and Social Policy Concentration and the Center on Global Economic Governance. Registration will open on Monday, February 5th.
