The UNCAC Coalition is a global network of over 350 civil society organisations (CSOs) in over 100 countries, committed to promoting the ratification, implementation and monitoring of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC). Established in August 2006, the Coalition mobilises civil society action for UNCAC at international, regional and national levels.
From 22 June 2022, JANAR is now the first Japanese organization to be part of the UNCAC Coalition and a member of its Anti-Corruption Platform for Southeast Asia. (You can click here to see JANAR’s profile page on the UNCAC Coalition website.)
This Anti-Corruption Platform for Southeast Asia provides a platform to showcase civil society organizations working on anti-corruption, in particular through activities around UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) and its review process. Organizations can share their work and contact information on their respective profile page. Through a dedicated email list and regular calls, organizations that are part of the platform discuss best practice approaches, coordinate advocacy activities, update each other on relevant developments and learn from each other’s experiences.
The UNCAC Coalition offers support to civil society organizations that want to become involved in and contribute to the UNCAC implementation review process in their respective country. The Coalition particularly encourages civil society organizations to produce parallel reports and follow-up reports.
