The overall aim of the workshop was to launch an interactive and inclusive regional discussion on anti-corruption institutional arrangements starting with the exploration of the concepts and practices associated with specialized anti-corruption bodies, or what is most commonly referred to as Anti-Corruption Agencies. More specifically, the workshop sought to facilitate in-depth knowledge-sharing on the experiences of Anti-Corruption Agencies in a variety of contexts; explore the substantive requirements for institutional arrangements under the UNCAC and the responses adopted by States Parties; and foster an interactive exchange on the experiences of Arab countries in establishing Anti-Corruption Agencies and identifying possible alternative approaches to reinforce
anti-corruption institutional arrangements. Participants to the meeting included heads of regional and international anti-corruption agencies and members of their staff, senior governmental and civil society representatives from the region and related regional and international organizations.
