Anti-Corruption and Integrity in the Arab Countries (ACIAC)

The project aimed to enable non-governmental actors to help develop, implement and monitor national anti-corruption strategies in Arab countries. The project was a major component in a broader regional anti-corruption initiative that generated context-specific knowledge and supported inclusive anti-corruption policy reform in Arab countries. It developed the capacities of representatives from at least 40 civil society organisations (CSOs) and businesses across the region, focusing on the implementation of articles 12 and 13 of the UNCAC, and on mainstreaming transparency and integrity standards and practices in various business sectors, with a view to enabling concrete participation in national anti-corruption strategies across the region.

Key activities included:

  • Training leading non-governmental practitioners (NGPs), using specially developed material.
  • Supporting CSOs and businesses to formulate and advocate joint policy positions on various anti-corruption themes and engage governments in direct dialogue.
  • Developing a service-oriented Portal for the Arab Anti-Corruption and Integrity Network (ACINET) to promote knowledge sharing between various stakeholders.
