Stavanger Mission Conference 2019
Corruption is a global challenge with local consequences.
To be able to understand it and fight it demands dialogue and sharing of experiences.
The Church has been instrumental in providing social welfare services and protecting human rights. Still, over the years many churches, Christian institutions and faith-based organizations have been hit by cases of corruption and financial mismanagement.
Will the Church play an active role in fighting corruption?
Can transparency and accountability increase ownership and financial sustainability of the churches?
Theme: The task of fighting Corruption
Eva Joly is a Norwegian-born French judge and corruption hunter. She is also a politician for Europe Écologie–les Verts and represented the party as a candidate for the presidency of France in the 2012 elections.
Theme: Why should the Church bother?
Dr. Agnes Abuom is an Anglican Theologian and Church leader from Kenya. In 2013 she was elected Moderator of the World Council of Churches (WCC) Central Committee, as the first African and the first woman to ever hold the presidency of the WCC.
International Church leaders and guest speakers will share experiences and challenges and participate in a panel discussion.
