Africa is under assault from foreign actors working covertly to influence policy making, elections, and public discourse, through instruments that include information manipulation, opaque lending and corrosive investments, and covert political finance contributions. To date, open government approaches have focused primarily on addressing threats posed by domestic corrupt actors. What adaptations or innovations are needed to defend against foreign-sponsored corruption?

Drawing on three policy briefs developed by OGP and NDI, and in partnership with Transparency International, the three panelists will provide their perspective on the threat of foreign corruptive influences. Following this, participants will break into groups to brainstorm openness and oversight measures that build resilience against foreign interference.
