This important campaign aims to celebrate the United Nations’ Convention against Corruption. It also takes stock of worldwide efforts to tackle corruption.
Sponsored by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the UN Development Program, it attracts widespread engagement and support internationally.
According to the Anti-Corruption Day website, “Corruption is a serious crime that can undermine social and economic development in all societies.”
“No country, region or community is immune.”
“This year UNODC and UNDP have developed a joint global campaign, focusing on how corruption affects education, health, justice, democracy, prosperity and development.”
Education and training play an important role in tackling corruption. To highlight International Anti-Corruption Day, GRC Solutions will be publishing a range of resources and commentary over the week ahead.
We’ll be offering broad-ranging multimedia content that will place International Anti-Corruption Day in the context of ongoing anti-corruption measures. We’ll also consider what consequences corruption poses, not only for its victims, but also for those who engage in it.
