Transparency International, France
Laurène has about 8 years of experience helping emerging and established leaders transform their vision into actions with a strong focus on issues linked to democracy and justice. She has joined Transparency International France – the French chapter of a global movement fighting corruption – in January 2016. As advocacy manager, she was thus heavily involved in the new French Anti-corruption Law called “Sapin II”. Regulation of lobbying, protection of whistleblowers, prevention and detection of corruption in the private and the public sector, creation of a new anti-corruption agency, this law provides an extensive set of regulations to fight against corruption and bribery nationally and internationally. Strengthening French anti-corruption regulations, the law was finally enacted in December 2016 and has been hailed as a “game-changer”. In January 2017 Laurene Bounaud became Executive Director of Transparency France. Her responsibilities now include strategic steering, institutional relations and team management. Laurène holds a Master’s degree in Communication from the Institut d’Etudes Politiques of Toulouse and a Master’s degree in Political Science from La Sorbonne University in Paris.
Laurène will be one of the panellists in the panel discussion on French anticorruption developments, mainly targeting Sapin II law enforcement.
