We participated at Global UN Anti-corruption conference – CoSP 10 in Atlanta, USA


The 10th session of the Conference of the States Parties to the United Nations Convention against Corruption (CoSP10) has concluded.

For the first time in the history of the CoSP, the participation of civil society institutions was given importance. And we note with great pride the participation of the Central Asian Institute for the Study of Corruption and Money Laundering in this historical event.
The 10th Conference of States Parties (COSP) to the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) was held in the United States of America. This is an important event discussing strategies to implement the Convention and strengthen the international community’s commitment to preventing and combating corruption.
Key topics and participants:
COSP brought together representatives from 190 UNCAC member states, as well as stakeholders from international organizations, civil society, academia, young leaders and the private sector.
Law enforcement cooperation for asset recovery:
COSP’s primary focus in the United States has been to strengthen communication and cooperation between law enforcement agencies and prosecutors involved in asset recovery. The strategic approach was aimed at ensuring that the proceeds of corruption were legally returned to their rightful owners, marking a significant step towards justice.
The critical role of civil society:
Recognizing that governments cannot fight corruption alone, the United States supported active civil society participation in COSP’s work. COSP provided another opportunity to highlight the invaluable experience and knowledge that civil society brings to the table. The first ever international, large-scale Civil Society Anti-Corruption Forum was organized, facilitating dialogue between participating States, civil society, academia and other stakeholders.
Financial Transparency and Honesty:
At the conference, a number of documents were discussed and adopted to strengthen measures that promote financial transparency and integrity.
Promoting accountability and ending impunity:
Accountability and ending impunity are central principles in the fight against corruption. Denying asylum to corrupt actors and recovering their illegal gains was an important theme of the conference.
Another significant event for our Institute was the organization of a side-event and presentation of the work of the Eurasian Academic Anti-Corruption Network and the activities of our Institute, together with ACREC and the Academy of Economic Research of Moldova.
Together we are moving towards building a world free of corruption!
