The World Without Corruption International Alliance™ Foundation (WWC) promotes the participation of civil society and the private sector in advancing the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC).
On March 24, 2021, Anatoly Yakorev, EthicSeer™ opened the Ethics, Compliance & Integrity Yearbook Conference 2021 with an overview of his article “Integrity Crisis?,” which set the stage for world leaders to reexamine the anti-corruption mindset and how we got to this crisis on our hands, in our hearts and in our minds.
With so many global leaders taking a soft approach to ethics and compliance and then attacking whistleblowers for revealing the true nature of the situation begs the question, what is really going on here? This is just one small example of a crippling trend that runs deep in all areas of business, politics and academia.
The conference was impactful with many insights, perspectives and initiatives being introduced; the Yearbook 2021 for Global Ethics, Compliance & Integrity offers an up-to-date overview of the recent and most significant developments in the interdisciplinary area of organizational Ethics, Compliance & Integrity Management. The 2021 Yearbook focuses on (but is not limited to) integrity and ethics and consists of 40 highly valuable articles submitted by 55 experts.
This program was developed and launched in 2011 to enable and empower people in all spheres of life to put their talents to make UN Convention against corruption work to reduce corruption levels and increase accountability of relevant institutions entrusted with compliance with international treaties. It was endorsed and supported by academia and professionals from all over the world for making it possible to people to develop their own projects within the framework of the United Nations Convention against Corruption.
World Without Corruption is a result of a joint effort of experts from many countries and is continuing efforts in the following areas:
There are two aspects to the fight against corruption. Having strong laws is the remedial aspect. The long term preventive aspect is creating a sense of belongingness. One steals from the other. One does not steal from oneself. Educating people in the idea that we are all part of one family can go a long way in removing corruption. The culprit here is not corrupt people, but a corrupt mindset. If we can replace the feeling of lack with a feeling of abundance in a person, he/she will not think about indulging in corruption.
All of us need to join our efforts in removing this malaise and this is definitely a step in the right direction. I want to congratulate you for launching this campaign at a global scale and extend all my support towards it.

I wish you every success in what you are doing. We certainly see in our own work in the SFO that citizens of countries are becoming increasingly intolerant of corruption and want to see it eradicated. We shall produce better societies if we are able to do this.
