In addition to tracking progress in the implementation of national anti-corruption strategies, there is an opportunity for ACAs to play a more active role in the reporting processes related to the implementation of UNCAC and to the EU accession process (the political criteria for EU accession include anti-corruption). In one session, participants examined the opportunity offered by the UNCAC and its ‘self-assessment checklist’ to undertake a more comprehensive and evidence-based diagnosis in areas of particular concern to a country.
