What is Joint Action against Corruption?

While working together is possible, businesses, civil society, and the public sector can fight corruption more effectively.

Joint Action against Corruption initiatives can include industry standards, multi-stakeholder initiatives, and public-private partnerships. The focus is usually on the “supply” side of bribery, as companies interact with other stakeholders to deal with the payment of bribes.

The World Bank Institute defines the fight against corruption as a Joint Action. Namely;

‘A collaborative and long-term solidarity process among stakeholders. It increases the impact and credibility of individual action, engages vulnerable individual players in alliance with the same think tanks, and smoothes the playing fields between opponents. “

The Three Types of Joint Actions

In practice, we define these categories of Joint Actions:

  • declaration of fight against corruption

  • Standard-setting or principles-based initiative, including a certification model for monitoring and auditing compliance with a contract that does not include bribery

  • Integrity Agreement
