This project aims to support private actors’ integrity efforts by educating present and future generations of business and public leaders and better informing the corporate community of the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC).
The project seeks to enhance companies’ knowledge of how UNCAC can make a difference in their daily work both internally and in their interaction with public counterparts, and to encourage the business community to turn their anti-corruption commitments into action by bringing their integrity programs in line with the universal principles of UNCAC. The project also seeks to support learning institutions which have come to realize that they do have a role to play in preparing the next generation of public and business leaders to the challenge of making right and ethical decisions.

UNODC is mandated to assist Member States in their efforts to fight illicit drugs, crime and terrorism through:
In its resolution 58/4 of October 31, 2003, the UN General Assembly adopted the UN Convention against Corruption. The Convention entered into force on December 14, 2005 and to date has been ratified by 150 Member States and the European Union. A Conference of the States Parties has been established by the Convention to promote and review its implementation. UNODC is the guardian of the Convention and the Secretariat of the Conference of the States Parties. The Convention is the legal instrument underlying the UN Global Compact’s 10th Principle against Corruption.
