Mapping anti-corruption authorities around the world – Q&A with the French Anti-Corruption Agency
The French Anti-Corruption Agency (AFA) in partnership with the Council of Europe’s Group of States against Corruption (GRECO), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the Network of Corruption Prevention Authorities (NCPA) have recently published a Global Mapping of Anti-Corruption Authorities. The survey fills a critical gap in information about national anti-corruption authorities (ACAs) around the world. ACAs are key institutions to prevent and combat corruption, but until now centralised data on their mandates, activities and even existence has been lacking.
Izadora Zubek, International Affairs Officer at the AFA, explores some of the report’s key findings and their implications for anti-corruption practice and cooperation in a Q&A conducted by the Basel Institute on Governance.
