The last two decades have witnessed a significant growth of Anti-Corruption Agencies (ACAs) around the world. Today there are more than 100 anti-corruption agencies in the world. Despite their increasing numbers at present, ACAs across the world show only a patch work of successes.  This may be due to a lack of independence, inadequate resources allocation, low capacity of its officials, as well as low level of public trust and support.   Therefore new tools and approaches are needed to make ACAs more accountable to their stakeholders.

The 7th COSP UNCAC Resolution 7/5 calls on state parties to take note of the Jakarta Principles to ensure the necessary independence and competence for anti-corruption agencies (ACAs) in accordance with the Article 6 of the UNCAC. The Jakarta Principles, comprising 16 key principles derived from country experiences and challenges from around the world, provide a roadmap for strengthening ACA independence and effectiveness.

The Jakarta Principles provides key elements that ACAs should have to be able to perform effectively. It contains recommendations on the importance of adequate authorities and resources, accountability and transparency, and also cooperation and collaboration to ensure independent and effective ACAs. However, more discussion on practical examples on how to implement the principles is required.

This workshop aims to define the practical steps to implement the Jakarta Principles as an accountability framework for ACAs in order to create independent and well-functioning ACAs. The workshop also will identify challenges in the application of these principles and also identify how collective action can contribute to strengthen and improve the independence of the ACAs. This IACC workshop invites experts and practitioners from around the world to discuss about the importance of independent and effective anti-corruption agencies (ACAs) in the anti-corruption movement. This workshop also explore the application of the Jakarta Principles as the prospective framework in implementing Article 6 and 36 of the UNCAC
