The accession to the United Nations Conventions Against Corruption (UNCAC), in February 2007 by the Government of Bangladesh (GoB) has been a significant and symbolic step toward great reforms for good governance and consistent with its commitment and declared strategy to fighting corruption and complying to international standards.
Bangladesh now needs to take systematic steps toward the identification of necessary legislative reforms, strengthening internal capacity needs for effective law enforcement and the formulation of anti-corruption strategies that are mainstreamed across institutions at risk of corruption.
The Bangladesh Compliance Analysis will be carried out by GoB in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and German Technical Cooperation (GTZ) in Bangladesh along with technical support primarily from the Institute.
Expert advice will be provided from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in Vienna, Austria and the Basel Institute of Governance (BIG) in Switzerland.

Guidance Note: UNCAC Self-Assessments - Going Beyond the Minimum
The "Guidance Note: UNCAC Self-Assessments - Going Beyond the Minimum”, published by the UNDP Asia-Pacific Regional Centre in Bangkok in partnership with UNODC, GTZ, Basel Institute on Governance (Switzerland) and the Institute of Governance Studies, BRAC University (Bangladesh), is a practical guide to undertaking a participatory self-assessment of implementation of the United Nations Convention against Corruption(UNCAC). The computer based UNCAC Self-Assessment Checklist is a user-friendly application that details all the technical requirements under each substantive article of UNCAC and is an information gathering tool to give a comprehensive national overview and provide the basis for developing recommendations to achieve full compliance. It also enables researchers to edit and process a wealth of information in a structured format. Click here for the full report.
