Given the unpredictable nature and growing health concerns related to the coronavirus (COVID-19), the World Bank Group’s Senior Management has imposed certain protective measures, including limits on travel and large gatherings, to ensure the safety of participants and staff. In line with their guidance, we have decided to postpone the Fifth International Debarment Colloquium, which had been scheduled for Thursday, April 23, 2020. This is an unfortunate outcome, but we remain hopeful that it will allow for a safer and more secure future event.
We have rescheduled the Colloquium to Tuesday, September 22, 2020, at the World Bank Headquarters in Washington, DC. We will update the website with more information and look forward to an engaging Colloquium in the fall.
