Meet Cecilia Müller Torbrand, Program Director, LLM, MACN Secretariat in Copenhagen. She started the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network, MACN in 2011 and have now managed to attract more than 30 pct of the world tonnage.
According to the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network’s anonymous reporting mechanism, which was set up in 2011, there have been over 28,000 incidents already reported, confirming that this is a widespread issue. Read more about that in the Maritime Executive
Cecilia claims the initiative has been very well greeted by the seafarers as they feel supported when declining bribes and corruption. It helps them feel encouraged and safe, says Cecilia, every company has a hero like that, find that person and support them and you will be better off in the future.
Cecilia is referring to Transparency International which is based in Berlin, whose mission is to stop corruption and promote transparency, accountability and integrity at all levels and across all sectors of society.
