Asia-Pacific Anti-Corruption Collective Action Award 2023

Celebrating inspiring and outstanding anti-corruption Collective Action initiatives

With the Collective Action Award, the Basel Institute on Governance acknowledges initiatives that showcase outstanding results, best practices and innovation in the field of Collective Action to tackle corruption and raise standards of business integrity.

The Anti-Corruption Collective Action Award aims to:

  • Celebrate inspiring examples in Collective Action and create an opportunity for identification with the Collective Action community of practice.
  • Encourage organisations and companies to engage in Collective Action to advance business integrity.
  • Raise awareness on Collective Action approaches and generate prestige of Collective Action among peers as well as the general public.

Eligible nominations will be transmitted to a jury comprised of experts in the field. From the selected finalists, each jury member will choose a winner. In addition to the jury's decision, the public will also have the opportunity to vote for their preferred initiative from among the three finalists.

The award is non-monetary in nature and can only be awarded to organisations, not individuals.

Upcoming Award

The Basel Institute and its regional partners will host the Asia-Pacific Anti-Corruption Collective Action Forum in September 2023. On this occasion, the Basel Institute will award regional initiatives that have demonstrated outstanding achievements in tackling corruption and raising standards of business integrity.

The call for nomination is now closed.
