State of Corruption Analysis Released by GOPAC

By A Correspondent

In honour of International Anti-Corruption Day, the Global Organization of Parliamentarians Against Corruption (GOPAC) released on December 10 the inaugural issue of The State of Nations, its regular, in-depth analysis of the state of corruption – and of the progress towards accountability and integrity – in a country of focus.

“International Anti-Corruption Day is a global call to arms against corruption, which GOPAC is answering with vigour,” said GOPAC COO Akaash Maharaj. “Through The State of Nations reports, we are helping legislators identify practical steps they can take to seal gaps in their countries’ bulwarks against corruption.”

The first issue of The State of Nations focusses on Morocco. It examines the steps legislators in Morocco are taking to press the anti-corruption agenda forward, highlights governance strengths and weaknesses, and discusses proposals for improvement.

The GOPAC Morocco parliamentarians led the process of creating this edition of The State of Nations, and they have committed themselves to a three-year action plan that includes building the capacity of parliamentarians to implement and monitor compliance with the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC); establishing a Code of Ethics for parliamentarians; drafting legislation to ensure citizen access to information; and promoting and activating anti-corruption legislation.

GOPAC is a worldwide alliance of parliamentarians working together to combat corruption, strengthen good government, and uphold the rule of law. Based in Ottawa, Canada, GOPAC has 51 national chapters on 5 continents. GOPAC supports its members’ efforts through original research, global anti-corruption capacity building, and international peer support.
