Multi-Stakeholders Workshop on Collective Action
Corruption is a major impediment to development, peace, and security. From health to
employment, education to the environment, business to sports, gender equality to
access to justice, and more – corruption undermines all areas of society’s development.
Corruption, conflict, and instability are meanwhile profoundly intertwined. Corruption not only follows conflict but is also frequently one of its root causes. It fuels conflict and inhibits peace processes by undermining the rule of law, worsening poverty, and facilitating the illicit use of resources. Promoting transparency and strengthening institutions are therefore critical for sustaining peace.
