Jakarta ConferenceFrom 26 to 27 November, delegates from anti-corruption authorities and regional professional networks, including Georg Florian Grabenweger representing EPAC/EACN, gathered in Jakarta on the invitation of the Indonesian Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), UNDP and UNODC.

The meeting launched a global professional debate on the principles for ensuring the independence and effectiveness of anti-corruption authorities. Participants reviewed and discussed country experiences from around the world, best practices and challenges faced by anti-corruption authorities. The meeting also provided an opportunity for the presentation of EPAC/EACN’s Anti-Corruption Authority Standards, unanimously adopted by the networks’ General Assembly in 2011.

H.E. Dr. H. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, President of the Republic of Indonesia, received the participants on the second day. “Corruption eradication is a global agenda whose success must be ensured. […]We need leadership, commitment and action at all levels”, the President said. The conference closed with the adoption of the Jakarta Statement on Principles for Anti-Corruption Agencies, the first global expert statement calling for accountability and the safeguarding of political, functional, operational and financial independence as a means for ensuring the effectiveness of an anti-corruption authority.
