Building Transparent, Accountable and Inclusive Institutions - 
Side Event of the Special Session of the General Assembly (UNGASS) Against Corruption 2021

Wednesday 2 June 2021, 14:00-15:00 EDT

 

 

The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) through its Division for Public Institutions and Digital Government (DPIDG), and the Group of States against Corruption of the Council of Europe (GRECO) will organize a side event on the theme of “Building Transparent, Accountable and Inclusive Institutions” at the Special Session of the General Assembly against Corruption 2021.  


The side event showcased the importance of building transparent, accountable and inclusive institutions to foster effective governance, prevent corruption and gain public trust. The event featured interventions and discussion on the experience gained to date by the organizers in strengthening integrity in the public sector, including by reflecting on specific initiatives and good practices. In this connection, UN DESA presented its Curriculum on Governance for the SDGs and the Toolkit on Transparency, Accountability and Ethics in Public Institutions that aims to build the capacities of governments and public servants in these areas. Participants also heard about the United Nations Public Service Award (UNPSA) from one of its winners. GRECO reflected on the lessons learned from its monitoring experience and the resulting recommendations to prevent corruption and promote integrity in all three branches of government. Implementation of such measures acquires even greater importance in times of emergency. The pivotal role of oversight bodies, in particular, anticorruption agencies and supreme audit institutions in relation to the proper management of public affairs and public property was also addressed.
