Event - "Improving Security Assistance" (May 5, 2015)

Transparency International's Defense and Security Program is presenting an event entitled "Improving Security Assistance" on Tuesday, May 5, 2015. The speaker is Mark Pyman and it is moderated by Sarah Chayes. The presentation is based on a report, Corruption: Lessons From the International Mission in Afghanistan, which concludes that the international mission in Afghanistan was undermined by corruption.
"The report provides a rigorous analysis of the damage that corruption - and turning a blind eye to it - did to the Afghanistan mission, based on interviews with seventy-five Afghans and internationals who were deeply involved in the mission. The report also offers a policy framework for countering this threat in future security assistance and stabilization operations."
Mark Pyman is the program director of Transparency International's Defense and Security Program. Sarah Chayes is a senior associate in the Democracy and Rule of Law and South Asia programs at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Sarah spent a decade living and working in Kandahar, Afghanistan.
