Morocco’s Anti-Corruption Agency Hosts High Profile International Events

December 2011

In late October, the Instance Centrale de la Prevention de la Corruption (ICPC), Morocco’s anti-corruption agency, hosted two high profile anti-corruption events in Marrakech. More than 700 delegates from 80 countries attended the annual conference of the International Association of Anti-Corruption Agencies, while the Conference of State Parties of the United Nations Convention against Corruption drew representatives from dozens of international organizations and non-governmental organizations and was attended by nearly 2,000 delegates from more than 150 countries. 

The ABA Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) supported the ICPC’s preparatory work for the meetings, helping to develop various outreach materials about the agency and arranging meetings with representatives from visiting anti-corruption institutions and international bodies, including with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO’s) ambassador charged with anti-corruption efforts. In addition to helping design pamphlets on ICPC’s role and its strategic partnerships (produced in French, Arabic and English), ABA ROLI also worked on the script for video that explained the organization’s mandate, which played continuously during both conferences.

ABA ROLI’s anti-corruption program in Morocco is supported by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs.
