Chapter II of the Convention: Preventive Measures

Articles 5-14

This Chapter requires States to take an effective and coordinated approach to the prevention of corruption. The preventive measures must promote integrity, transparency and accountability, as well as the participation of society, reflect the rule of law and promote the proper management of public affairs and public property. Primary tools are addressing public awareness and strengthening the public intolerance to corruption as well as strengthening the integrity of the public administration.

UNODC supports the efforts of the States Parties to develop anti-corruption policies by providing technical assistance for the development or review of anti-corruption strategies and for the compliance with other provisions of Chapter II.
