In the Sustainable Globalisation plenary, Vlasssi shows the ways in which the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) and the rule of law in general are key in combating corruption. He presents the UNCAC as an antidote to a lack of economic growth and trust in institutions and social instability through its use as a transparent and common framework that eliminates safe havens for corruption.

Dimitri Vlassis holds a law degree from the University of Athens (Greece) and an LL.M. (Master of Laws) from the University of Miami (U.S.A.). He is an attorney, licensed to practice law in Greece and member of the Athens Bar Association. Mr. Vlassis was recruited by the United Nations in 1989, working with the Centre for International Crime Prevention of the Office for Drug Control and Crime Prevention of the United Nations Office at Vienna (now the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime) ever since. Mr. Vlassis is currently Secretary of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention against Corruption. His responsibilities at the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, in his capacity as Chief of the Corruption and Economic Crime Section, also include action against corruption and other forms of economic crime.
