Corruption in specific areas

Corruption and sports

The world of sports has gone through dramatic evolution resulting in many challenges and opportunities. Factors such as increasing professionalization and expansion of scope of the sports industry, combined with a diverse and multifaceted approach to regulation and governance of sports organizations, has resulted in many benefits.

However, a major downside is that some of the associated risks of this evolution for sports organizations and law enforcement agencies as well as other stakeholders have not been adequately assessed or mitigated.áRead more╗

Corruption and wildlife and forest crime

Wildlife and forest crime is a serious and growing problem, posing a significant threat to the environment and negatively impacting economic and social development, security and governance. It comprises the fourth largest illegal trade worldwide after arms, drugs and human trafficking, and frequently links with other forms of serious crime such as fraud, money laundering, and corruption.áRead more╗

Human rights

Countering corruption contributes to further strengthen human rights. The United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) recognizes principles such integrity, accountability, transparency and the right to information, all of which reinforces the practical application and respect for human rights.

Moreover, by requiring States parties to take measures to strengthen judicial integrity and to prevent opportunities for corruption among members of the judiciary and the prosecution service, the Convention, consistent with human rights law, requires States parties to strengthen integrity standards as a key to prevent and counter corruption.áRead more╗
