Day Three: Session 5

Session 5 Faith and Human Security

Workshop Special Session

Coordinator: Katherine Marshall, Senior Fellow and Visiting Professor, Georgetown University
Date: Saturday 17:00 to 19:00
Location: MC 2

Faith leaders are critical social and often political actors and their engagement in governance and anticorruption efforts can help ensure holistic approaches to creating shared security. Peace and security is not just about diplomacy and state solutions; it is also about social goals and norms as well as intergroup relations; faith leaders and communities have roles on all dimensions but particularly the latter as they so often play key roles in people's lives. Many faith leaders bring deep historical appreciation of and wisdom about the evolution of social norms and values and tensions that can exist among their different dimensions. With this understanding, this panel will bring together faith and secular governance leaders to name and outline the elephants in the room-the most difficult issues at stake in fighting corruption-and then suggest advice about how to move forward in including and energizing faith leaders and institutions in overcoming these challenges. Experts will explore key questions and creative solutions. How best to energize and include faith leaders and institutions in anticorruption efforts? How to think about how to deal with nepotism and conflicts of interest. How to balance positive education in values with deterrent measures? How to approach innovative reforms in permissive institutional cultures that look the other way on lapses in integrity? How to respectfully advocate for religious communities to fight corruption within and beyond their own communities?
