FILTER BY COUNTRY & ORGANISATION -or- ISSUE AREA:
COMMONWEALTH SECRETARIAT

The Commonwealth Secretariat is the worst performer of the international organisations. By its own assessment seven of its 13 commitments (54 per cent) remain inactive, meaning that potentially significant pledges have not yet been delivered. 15 per cent of the Commonwealth Secretariat’s commitments are complete, and only 8 per cent are underway.

A new Commonwealth Office of Civil and Criminal Justice Reform has been established, and the Commonwealth Secretariat has used its common language, common legal system and extensive network to develop anti-corruption policies, strengthen legal frameworks and develop practical toolkits to implement strategies to combat corruption. The Commonwealth Secretariat’s commitment to deliver better procurement across the public and private sector is ongoing, and the commitment to assisting member countries to strengthen anti-corruption agencies by training investigators, prosecutors and other justice actors is underway.
