Join the UNCAC Coalition
The UNCAC Coalition welcomes individuals and Civil Society Organisations whose work aligns with the spirit of the Coalition. This includes for example non-governmental organisations, academics, trade unions, etc.
Private sector associations (such as chambers of commerce) are not eligible for membership of the UNCAC Coalition. However, we encourage these organisations to sign up to the
UN Global Compact to pursue their anti-corruption efforts. The Application Process
Applicants submit an online application.
The application is assessed by the secretariat to ensure the applicant meets the eligibility criteria for membership.
If the applicant is eligible, the application is then sent to the UNCAC Coalition Coordination Committee for its review.
Applicants are notified via email of the outcome of their application.
