The Franz-Hermann Brüner Memorial Lecture
Mr. Brüner was instrumental in expanding the CII’s influence in its early years, increasing the number and type of participating organisations and using the CII as a forum to raise the bar on the work of all participating integrity offices. Since his death in 2010, prominent or distinguished industry professionals, scholars or dignitaries have been invited to present the Franz-Hermann Brüner Memorial Lecture on the conference’s opening day. The lectures are designed to recognize Mr. Brüner’s role in developing the CII and to honour his achievements and use of investigations as a deterrent to combat fraud and corruption. They also highlight the role of international organisations today in combating fraud and corruption around the world as well as in advancing anti-corruption objectives to which Mr. Brüner was deeply committed.
