As part of the Lecture Series of the Americas, the Organization of American States presents the seventeenth lecture with the title “Beyond Words and Paper: Why the Americas Must Act Against Corruption”.  The guest speaker is Huguette Labelle, Chair of Transparency International.

Transparency International brings people together in a powerful worldwide coalition to end the devastating impact of corruption on men, women and children around the
world. Their mission is to create change towards a world free of corruption. Transparency International is a global network including more than 90 locally established national chapters and chapters-in-formation. These bodies fight corruption in the national arena in a number of ways. They bring together relevant players from government, civil society, business and the media to promote transparency in elections, in public administration, in procurement and in business.

The lecture will take place Tuesday November 28, 2006 at 3:00 p.m., in the Hall of the Americas; OAS Building in Washington D.C. You can also view the lecture online.
