Anti-Corruption & Integrity Network (ACINET)
The Arab Anti-Corruption & Integrity Network (ACINET) is a leading platform in the
region for knowledge networking, capacity development and policy dialogue in its
field. It brings together governmental anti-corruption institutions from across
the Arab region, in addition to prominent non-governmental actors, organized in
the form of a non-governmental group that functions
as an independent component of the Network.
ACINET was established in Amman (Jordan) on the 30th of July 2010, in the presence
of high-level officials representing anti-corruption institutions from 16 Arab countries.
It builds on the positive results of the joint
UNDP/OECD Initiative on Good Governance for Development (GfD) in the Arab Countries,
and is the fruit of extensive regional and national consultations that were launched
under the umbrella of the
second Dead Sea Declaration, with the support of UNDP and its partners including
the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the Organization for Economic Cooperation
and Development, and the League of Arab States. These consultations yielded agreement
over the Constitutive Documents of the Network, including the charter, the rules
of procedure and the constitutive declaration, which govern ACINET’s work.
Following eight months of internal preparations, ACINET endorsed its
of Work on the 2nd of April 2009, and launched its first cycle for(2009-2010) under the chairmanship of Jordan. On 27 July 2010, ACINET endorsed its second programme of work and launched its second
cycle for (2010-2011) under the chairmanship of Yemen.
ACINET organizes various activities in support of its members and provides, or facilitates
the provision of, technical assistance thereto, whenever possible. It also publishes
a monthly News Update and other knowledge products, and fosters in-remote knowledge
sharing between various stakeholders through a variety of tools. The Network is
supported by a Regional Support Unit that is hosted in the offices of UNDP’s Programme
on Governance in the Arab Region in Beirut (Lebanon).
