Joining Forces for Enforcement: Making UNCAC Work

Session Description

Anti-corruption laws frequently have loopholes. National police, prosecution and judiciary services often fail to enforce them. Barriers to mutual legal assistance prevent holding the corrupt to account. The UNCAC provides comprehethat UNCAC’s potential is realised so that corrupt leaders and their accomplices are subject to the rule of law? This workshop will explore various possible initiatives to promote UNCAC enforcement and an end to impunity. How can civil society and the private sector work together? What joint action can we take together at a regional and global level? Should an international anti-corruption tribunal be part of the solution? Our expert panellists, all at forefront of enforcement campaigning, will speak about their rich and varied experiences campaigning for stronger enforcement based on international standards and conventions against corruption. The session will also look at the possibility of a joint initiative on asset recovery and anti-money laundering ahead of the UNCAC Conference of State Parties in late 2013.
