Resolution 58/4 of 31 October 2003 marked the adoption by the UN of the Convention Against Corruption, showing concern at the highest levels for ways to move society world-wide forward in their efforts to deal with corruption in all its forms.
In 2011, the Alliance marked the International Anti-Corruption Day with dialogues facilitating collaboration amongst experts, stakeholders and governments.
This year, in preparation for the International Day, the Alliance is inviting its members, associates and interested parties including governments and intergovernmental groups to join the “Voices of Experts Week” and support “Promoting A Just Society 2012.”
Contribute to the week by holding a discussion, forum, keynote address, symposia, presentation of promising practices or some other event during the week of December 3 – 10, 2012 to add to the collective focus on innovative efforts, strategies, and/or constructive dialogues that work.
Or help promote the week using your network, social media, blog, organization’s lists.
Or sponsor the week by lending your organization’s name or fund.
Or simply join one of the events!
This year’s focus on what works at all levels, including the individual, family, community, state, regional and international levels is already planned to take place in locations around NYC, in New Jersey and Washington DC, and we also invite interested parties to link their events, topics and findings to the Week to further highlight practices and approaches that constructively contribute to the diminishment of corruption.
To report and to highlight the collective work of organizations and people worldwide at the highest levels, we will hold an event at UNHQ on Thursday December 6th during which the Alliance will invite key UN Departments and Member States both to co-sponsor, to participate and to report to their respective ministers.
There are three ways individuals, organizations, Member States, and both Civil and the Private Sector can participate and you are invited to choose one or more. You can indicate your intention by submitting your intention online or by calling 914.630.4339:
