Master Training Seminar on Meeting International Anti-Corruption Standards


Master Training Seminar on Meeting International Anti-Corruption Standards

14 February 2005 to 17 February 2005

The recent signature of the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) by many of the Initiative’s members has created the need for certain legal and institutional adjustments in preparation of the instrument’s ratification. As the UN Convention and the Anti-Corruption Action Plan for Asia-Pacific have important similarities in terms of involved actors, thematic coverage and means to achieve their common goal to eliminate corruption, the two instruments have great potential for synergy. Taking advantage of this synergy, the seminar addressed obligations resulting for Asian and Pacific countries from the ratification of the UN-Convention against Corruption, discussed selected mandatory provisions of the UN Convention which are of high priority in the Asian and Pacific countries’ efforts against corruption, and explored how the ADB/OECD Initiative can assist endorsing countries in this reform process.

The seminar was conducted on 14-17 February 2005 in cooperation with the UN Office on Drugs and Crime and hosted by the National Accountability Bureau of Pakistan. This site is dedicated to provide background information on the Seminar.
