New global body to tackle corruption

Link: Hunting down errors at the EU

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.
