UNODC organized a regional multi-stakeholder workshop in Serbia from 24 to 27 September, to train civil society, private sector and government representatives from Southeast Europe to implement the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), the only international legally-binding anti-corruption instrument.

The event aims to facilitate collaboration between the various stakeholders in implementing UNCAC and its Review Mechanism, and to advise them on applying the methodology and tools available through the Convention. Among other things, this will enable them to build on the momentum of their country reviews and ensure that preventing and eradicating corruption is at the forefront of their national agendas. The event is a good opportunity for the 60 participants to engage in a constructive dialogue on good practices and lessons learned, thereby building trust and confidence among each other.

Mrs. Ardita Seknaj, Secretary General of ICC Albania participated as a speaker at this regional multi-stakeholder workshop by presenting  the launch of the Anti-Corruption Coalition in Albania at the fourth session “Collective action to enhance integrity in South East Europe: Good Practices and Challenges. She highlighted that this coalition aims to strengthen the dialogue between different stakeholders on the importance of the responsible business conduct and advocate for the endorsement of the best international integrity practices.
