Action Agenda of the Anti-Corruption Policies Cohort of the Summit for Democracy

The Action Agenda published by the Summit for Democracy’s Cohort on Anti-Corruption Policies is a joint commitment between participating governments and civil society organisations for continued cooperation on anti-corruption.

Focus areas:

  • Monitoring systemic corruption – through reporting, open government initiatives, better use of existing mechanisms and closer collaboration between government, civil society and the private sector.
  • Preventing corruption – through better implementation of anti-corruption policies, rigorous assessments and warning systems.
  • Thwarting strategic corruption – by flagging the use of financial investments to undermine the economies and institutions of democratic nations and by mitigating foreign influence operations such as hybrid attacks and disinformation campaigns.
  • Building sustainable communication channels and robust partnerships across stakeholders groups - by ensuring broad participation in the development of legislation and policies, promoting regional cooperation and enhancing transparency and access to relevant information.

The Cohort is a cooperation between the Government and Ministry of Justice of Bulgaria, the Basel Institute on Governance and the Center for the Study of Democracy under the Summit for Democracy initiative of US President Biden.

The Southeast Europe Leadership for Development and Integrity (SELDI), the Regional Good Governance Public-Private Partnership Platform (R2G4P), and the Regional Anti-Corruption Initiative (RAI) will serve as resource structures of the Cohort in view of their expertise and capacity.
