On 22 September 2020, the first session of the Fifth International Debarment Colloquium hosted by the World Bank Office of Suspension and Debarment and IBA’s Debarment and Exclusions Subcommittee was held virtually. BLOMSTEIN partner Roland Stein was invited to speak as a panellist about the EU’s exclusion system.
This year, the colloquium is being organised in five virtual webinars over five consecutive weeks. Each webinar consists of a roundtable with international experts who discuss procurement and anti-corruption perspectives. Topic of the first roundtable was: “A Global Survey of Debarment: How is Debarment Used by Countries, the Private Sector, and State-Owned Enterprises?”.

The next webinar will take place today, discussing “The Importance of Transparency: Efforts to Enforce Debarment Decisions”. For more information click here.
