CCLP Worldwide admitted as International Organizational Member with United Nations Convention Against Corruption Coalition

The United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) is the legally binding international anti-corruption instrument. UNCAC provides a unique opportunity to mount a global response to a global problem. Adopted by the UN General Assembly in October 2003, it is the first global framework to harmonise anti-corruption efforts worldwide.With 148 countries bound by it, UNCAC offers a truly global chance for change. It is widely recognised as the most promising initiative to curb the scourge of corruption. This convention is unique not only in its worldwide coverage but also in the extensiveness and detail of its provisions. The convention entered into force in December 2005, and as of February 2011 there are 148 countries that are acknowledged as Parties to the convention. The UNCAC embodies a comprehensive approach to corruption, recognising the importance of both preventive and punitive measures. It also addresses the cross-border nature of corruption, and includes provisions on the return of ill-gotten assets.This convention holds great promises for civil because it provides a mandate for the participation of citizens and civil society organisations in accountability processes.

In its resolution 55 61 of 4 December 2000 the General Assembly recognized that an effective international legal instrument against corruption independent of the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime resolution 55 25 annex I was desirable and decided to establish an ad hoc committee for the negotiation of such an instrument in Vienna at the headquarters of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.. The text of the United Nations Convention against Corruption was negotiated during seven sessions of the Ad Hoc Committee for the Negotiation of the Convention against Corruption held between 21 January 2002 and 1 October 2003..
