The involvement of civil society in the fight against corruption and crime is a civic duty because they directly or indirectly affect every citizen in general and young people in particular.
Dictatorship .. Tyranny .. Corruption
A dictator is only a fiction. His power is actually spread among many anonymous and irresponsible sub-dictators whose tyranny and corruption soon become unbearable.
The fight against corruption and crime at the international level
Corruption is a brake on economic and sustainable development. It also promotes the development of criminal and terrorist activities. The poorest populations are the first to be affected by its consequences. The first universal legal instrument intended to prevent and combat this phenomenon, which entered into force in 2005, was the United Nations Convention against Corruption, known as the Merida Convention.
This legal tool encourages States parties to this legal instrument to criminalize and penalize active bribery of national, international and foreign public officials. This convention also organizes the return of embezzled or laundered assets and the extradition of persons convicted of corruption.
The said Convention recognizes the role of civil society in the fight against corruption under its article 13, calling on governments to increase transparency, ensure effective public access to information and also promote public participation in decision-making processes. .
This same convention strengthens the capacity and commitment of civil society, particularly in developing countries, by providing training to NGOs on the Convention and its review mechanism. It also supports the engagement of civil society during intergovernmental meetings and provides the necessary legal tools so that it can work constructively with governments and the private sector in the implementation of the said Convention.
To do this, WHOAC is a global organization committed to fighting corruption and crime around the world. Its main objective is to provide intelligence and analysis, and to raise awareness through a combination of global pressure tactics.
