InternationalAnti-Corruption Day is observed on December 9 every time since 2005 to raise mindfulness against the global issue.
The United Nations, which officially endorses International Anti-Corruption Day, says that this political, social and profitable miracle slows down profitable development, undermines the saintship of republic and adds to governmental insecurity.
The UN also lists corruption as one of the “ biggest” hurdles to achieving its 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. It notes that although corruption exists in and affects both rich and poor nations, it hurts poor people disproportionately.
International Anti-Corruption Day History
In October 2003, the United Nations General Assembly espoused the UN Convention against Corruption. After this, the United Nations Office on Medicines and Crime (UNODC) was designated as the secretariat for the Convention’s Conference of States Parties.
The assembly also designated December 9 as InternationalAnti-Corruption Day.
International Anti Corruption Day 2021 Theme
“Your right, your role: Say no to corruption”.
What comes under corruption?
The UN convention overlooks at multiple forms of corruption including
Trading in influence
Abuse of functions
Bribery of foreign public officers, public public officers and officers of public transnational organisations
Piecemeal from raising mindfulness against the crime, the end of the day is also to laboriously support juggernauts that combat and help corruption. Through this day, the UN also seeks to support transnational cooperation to fight against corruption.
