The Global Organization of Parliamentarians Against Corruption (GOPAC) represents parliamentarians from around the world who are committed to tackling corruption. While the corrupt are adapting new technologies and strategies to strengthen their gains, parliamentarians are committing to smarter partnerships across their communities to circumvent corrupt practices. In this session, GOPAC’s regional and national chapters share some of the creative partnerships that are making an impact in preventing and interrupting corruption.
GOPAC aims to highlight the importance of parliamentarians engaging with their constituents and working collaboratively with civil society to raise awareness of corruption issues and lobby for legislative and administrative changes at combatting corruption. It focuses on the representational role of parliamentarians in ensuring that the voice of the people is heard by government and reflected in appropriate anti-corruption legislation.

Session Rapporteur: Lavenia Rokovucago
