Corruption, Arms Trade & Organised Crime
Let’s Talk About Corruption, Arms Trade & Organised Crime – Disruption Network Lab meetup with With Julia Auf dem Brinke (Co-Founder of Corruption Tracker)
The international arms trade is by design an elite space, grounded within exclusive networks, corrupt practices and known for its opaque deals, making it difficult to grasp when you are standing on the outside. And let’s be honest – most people are on the outside. To make this daunting and elusive field a little bit more accessible we are inviting you to join us for an evening of talking about corruption, arms trade and organised crime. We are going to discuss why the arms trade is such a good target for corrupt actors and how it interconnects with organised crime.
During the second half, we are going to break into a more interactive format to see how corruption, arms trade and/or organised crime intersects with your lived experiences, work, activism or research. Depending on your preference you might want to envision what you would need to become the most successful corrupt arms dealer, or you might rather discuss how anti-corruption work intersects with other issue areas and how we can work together on this. Overall, if you have never talked about these issues before or if you deal with them everyday, we would be excited to have you – let’s talk about corruption & arms trade!
