Training Workshop on UK Global Anti-Corruption Sanctions

Updated: Nov 27, 2023

Situation


Across Asia, 20 – 40 % of citizens report paying a bribe to receive public services to which they are entitled. Organisations combating corruption in the region have requested advice on ways to access the enforcement tools of the UK Global Anti-Corruption Sanctions (UK GACS) regime in order to promote accountability and good governance in government.


 

ILP’s Actions


In partnership with Transparency International (TI), the world’s leading anti-corruption NGO, ILP organised a virtual training workshop on the UK GACS Regime for 38 in-house lawyers from 10 TI Asia-Pacific Chapters: Fiji, Vanuatu, Australia, Cambodia, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, Pakistan, Indonesia, Nepal and Sri Lanka.


 

Impact


The workshop equipped TI’s national chapters in Asia with the knowledge to make strong sanctions submissions to the UK Foreign, Commonwealth Development Office.
