ANALYSIS: Myanmar's guidelines to combat “rampant and obvious” bribery. "International investors in Myanmar should take note of the Guidelines when considering their own anti-bribery and corruption (ABC) measures. Such measures should be in place in any event where multinational businesses are operating (or considering operations) in countries – such as Myanmar – which may be considered high risk."

OPEN CONSULTATION: Can open data be an effective tool to fight corruption?  The Open Data Charter has launched an open consultation targeted at civil society organizations, government officials, and investigative journalists. The consultation seeks to collect key information on real or potential cases that—through the use of data—can address concrete corruption problems.
