New global body to tackle corruption

A new organisation, the Group for Anti-Corruption Coordination, has been created at a conference staged by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, and will be a clearing-house for good practice and intelligence on corruption.

The GACC will be shared with other UN agencies, intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations concerned with fighting corruption.

Founding non-UN bodies include the European Commission; the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development; EU anti-fraud office OLAF, Interpol, the World Bank, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and Transparency International.

Their joint launch statement said the group would ‘avoid undue duplication…to ensure effective and efficient use of existing resources.’

It will share information about corruption within member organisations, as well as outside.
