We are delighted to announce Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as our 2021 Annual Lecture speaker. 

Dr Ngozi is the Director-General of the World Trade Organisation (WTO). Her appointment in March this year came at a critical time globally.

Her CV includes serving as chair of the Global Alliance for Vaccines & Immunisation (GAVI) during the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, as well as positions on the boards of Twitter and Standard Chartered. She also served as Finance Minister of Nigeria for seven years.

As the world seeks to ‘build back better’ from the pandemic, it is essential that anti-corruption is part of the conversation. Global and collaborative engagement with bodies such as the WTO will be key to this recovery.

Dr Okonjo-Iweala promises to bring some fascinating observations of international corruption and its far-reaching implications across borders, sectors and themes - particularly around issues such as illicit financial flows.

We look forward to welcoming Dr Okonjo-Iweala on Wednesday, December 15. This year’s Annual Lecture will take a slightly different format than previous years, with the event taking place in Central London and also as a live stream online for those unable to attend in person.

We will be releasing more details on this year’s Annual Lecture/In-Conversation in due course, but for now, you can register your interest in attending this event below.

We look forward to seeing you either in person or online later this year.
