    The Use of Positive Deviance in Government Functionary Exortion Situations: Latest Results

    12 PM GMT

    For the past 10 years, the ABA International Section has sponsored programs and workshops on the “Positive Deviance” Approach to ethically, successfully and safely secure from governments what rightfully belongs to our clients without submitting to government functionary extortion. More recently, the ABA Rule of Law Initiative supported training and research in Positive Deviance methods for non-U.S. judicial functionaries. This teleconference will provide the attendees with up-to-date results from working with rural women in extortionate situations involving employment, schooling and public transportation; with disaster-relief works facing bottleneck extortion, with court functionaries who support seemingly overwhelming pressures to do the wrong thing. We will also hear about the importance of human relationships in extortion situations, based on Positive Deviance examples in prisons: and about the particularities of using the Positive Deviance approach in international commerce. The Positive Deviance Approach may be creating the first economically and ethically sound business profit incentives to not pay bribes, incentives which continue to be missing in other Compliance approaches and methods.

    Speakers:

    • Monique Sternin (France/USA), Co-founder, Positive Deviance Initiative, Participant and Supervisor of Rural Women Empowerment in Extortion Situations (USA)
    • Bruce Horowitz (Ecuador), SIL Anti-corruption Committee (former Co-Chair), President Center for the Study of Bribery and Extortion Situations
    • Malika Ait-Mohamed Parent (Switzerland), SIL member, Under-secretary General of the Int'l Red Cross/Red Crescent
    • Lars Thuesen (Denmark),Welfare Improvement Network, and former head of innovation in the Danish Ministry of Justice, Department of Prison and Probation
    • David Gasser (Puerto Rico), Social Visions Network, Strength-based Solutions, formerly with Merck 

    Moderator:  John Coogan (USA), Co-chair, SIL Anti-Corruption Committee, Chief Counsel in the Business Risks Department of International Finance Corporation, part of the World Bank Group
