International conventions such as the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) play a key role in anti-corruption efforts. They provide frameworks that set anti-corruption standards and address cross-border issues. They are evidence that the international community takes corruption seriously and recognises the need for common solutions. The UNCAC is the most comprehensive of all the anti-corruption conventions. This is a guide to support civil society organisations in using the UNCAC effectively. It leads you through its processes and institutions, and explains how to devise an effective approach to monitoring and advocacy that will help you to bring about change and enhance anti-corruption activities at both the national and international levels.
