About us

The Arab Anti-Corruption and Integrity Network (ACINET) is the first Arab regional mechanism that brings together governmental and non-governmental entities to consult and cooperate against corruption. The Network was established on 30 July 2008 and currently includes 50 ministries and official agencies from 18 Arab countries, two observer members, and the “Non-Governmental Group", which consists of 28 independent organizations from civil society, private sector and academia.

ACINET is convened periodically to review its progress reports and identify priorities for its Programmes of Work. It also issues resolutions and conclusions and other documents to provide guidance on anti-corruption and integrity issues and support related efforts across the Arab region.

The "Regional Support Unit" in Beirut provides secretariat services to the Network. It is funded and hosted by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)’s Regional Portfolio on Anti-Corruption and Integrity in the Arab Countries (ACIAC) of the) and cooperates with various partners including the League of Arab States (LAS), the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
