UN Convention against Corruption
UNCAC is the only globally-agreed framework on combating corruption. Learn more about its content and processes, and about related international agreements.
UNCAC sets a comprehensive benchmark for anti-corruption laws, institutions, and actions of ratifying countries. UNCAC commitments can be a valuable basis for national anti-corruption agendas and donor dialogue and assistance, but its range—from anti-corruption agencies to criminalization to asset recovery—also demands priority-setting. The UNCAC review mechanism can shape some priorities, but the specific country context is equally important.
