IACA Reaffirms Support for the Council of Europe’s GRECO

IACA has this week reiterated its long-standing support for the work of the Council of Europe’s Group of States against Corruption (GRECO) at a high-level conference in Šibenik, Croatia. The event was hosted by the Croatian Minister of Justice, as Croatia currently holds the Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe.

Martin Kreutner, Dean and Executive Secretary, led the IACA delegation and was a speaker in a panel discussion on promoting integrity and tackling corruption. He also had a bilateral meeting with Thorbjørn Jagland, Secretary General of the Council of Europe, in the margins of the conference.

Mr. Kreutner shared his thoughts on the state of anti-corruption and the importance of GRECO’s work in this video recorded at the event.

“GRECO is now in its fifth round of evaluations, with timely and important topics, and I am confident that it will continue to have significant impact and input in the future,” said Mr. Kreutner, who is himself a former GRECO evaluator.

The Council of Europe established GRECO in 1999 to monitor States’ compliance with its anti-corruption standards through a dynamic process of mutual evaluation and peer pressure.

GRECO aims to identify deficiencies in national anti-corruption policies and provides a platform for sharing best practices in preventing and detecting corruption. IACA has held observer status with the body since 2011.

Other sessions at the conference focused on strengthening cooperation between national anti-corruption authorities, and the role of the media in promoting transparency and preventing corruption.
