A Special Event at the Eighth Session of the Conference of the States Parties to the United Nations Convention against Corruption
This event, which forms part of the activities of the Geneva Human Rights Platform, is co-organized with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the Centre for Civil and Political Rights (CCPR Centre), CHRAJ-Ghana, Switzerland and Morocco – aims at raising awareness of the negative impact of corruption on the enjoyment of human rights and the consequent need to undertake effective anti-corruption measures. Participants will share good practices and their views on the potential and limitations of mainstreaming the anti-corruption and human rights agendas.
This event will also be the occasion to present the Practitioners’ Guide on Human Rights and Countering Corruption, published by the Geneva Academy and the CCPR Centre, to the anti-corruption community: governments, NGOs, experts, practitioners, representatives of international organizations, the media and Nations Human Rights Institutions.
The Geneva Academy has been granted leave by the Court to intervene as a third party in this case – along with 26 governments – and submitted its third-party intervention on 28 April 2023.
