Uniting Against Corruption /A Playbook on Anti-corruption Collective Action/
This publication was developed as part of the UN Global
Compact multi-year project Scaling up Anti-Corruption
Collective Action within Global Compact Local Networks.
With the six-step approach and deep dives on key roles
throughout the Collective Action process, the Playbook
enables readers to make a clear diagnosis of their local
corruption landscape, identify and engage stakeholders and
apply the Collective Action methodology to address identified
corruption challenges and mitigate potential business risks.
Chapters 4 to 7 take a “deep dive” with practical descriptions of
the main roles. The Initiator, the Facilitator, the Participant and
the Monitor are the roles that may be present in a Collective
Action. Each of these sections describe the specific types of
actors that can play these roles, the (recommended) skills
needed to fill in these positions, as well as the incentives they
might have and the challenges they may encounter while
performing these functions.
The content in this Playbook builds upon resources developed
by the UN Global Compact as part of multi-year projects
implemented under the First and Second Funding Rounds
of the Siemens Integrity Initiative. Further research was
conducted using publications and resources from strategic
partners and leading organizations in the field.
Ultimately, this Playbook aims to mainstream the understanding
and uptake of Collective Action among Global Compact Local
Networks, businesses and other relevant stakeholders.
Please note that the Playbook is intended to serve as a
practical guide and the UN Global Compact will develop a
separate publication on the success stories, challenges and
impact from Collective Action initiatives carried out by the
Global Compact Local Networks and partner organizations.
