On Monday, September 10 at 10 a.m. EDT, the United Nations Security Council will host a first-ever session on the critical and devastating connection between corruption and conflict. John Prendergast, Enough’s Founding Director and co-Founder of The Sentry, will join UN Secretary-General António Guterres as one of the two featured speakers. Watch the livestream here.
As the work of Enough and The Sentry have demonstrated in war-torn areas of East and Central Africa, tackling corruption through the use of financial pressure is critical to creating consequences for those profiting from conflict and atrocities in order to create leverage for peace and human rights.
