Anti-corruption reforms are a crucial policy priority to strengthen democracy, achieve development goals and promote financial transparency and public integrity. Raising political awareness of the issue and strengthening collective action and leadership is key to advancing shared anti-corruption priorities across countries and ensuring that global pledges translate into concrete actions at the country level.
Tackling corruption has been a central aim of the Open Government Partnership (OGP) since its founding in 2011. The new OGP strategy 2023-2028 is an opportunity to intensify these shared efforts — anti-corruption is one of the key areas of emphasis under the new strategy, where the overall focus will be on policies that tackle grand corruption and kleptocracy and on public integrity, including issues such as beneficial ownership, open contracting, lobbying and political finance, and others.
Building on the momentum created by the 2nd Summit for Democracy and in the run-up to UNCAC CoSP in December 2023 and the third Summit for Democracy in 2024, OGP will convene this high-level anti-corruption roundtable at the OGP Global Summit in Estonia, on September 6, 2023. The aim of this roundtable is to foreground implementation efforts that countries are making to tackle corruption and to catalyze collective action to transform existing commitments into action and progress, including through OGP action plans and beyond.
This roundtable discussion will bring together high-level anti-corruption champions from government, civil society and international partners, including those leading or engaged in collective action initiatives. Government representatives will include member countries of the Summit for Democracy Financial Transparency and Integrity Cohort, the Beneficial Ownership Leadership Group, and other countries showing leadership in challenging corruption in their OGP plans.
