The Istanbul Anti-corruption Action Plan is a sub-regional peer review programme launched in 2003 in the framework of the ACN. It supports anti-corruption reforms through country reviews and continuous monitoring of implementation of recommendations, which promote the UNCAC and other international standards and best practice. This programme:

  • reviews the legal and institutional frameworks for fighting corruption and make recommendations
  • monitors progress in implementing the recommendations

The results are discussed at regional meetings and published as country and progress reports.

The first round of monitoring was conducted between 2004-2007. This 2008 report summarises the results.

The second round  monitoring took place between 2008-2012. This 2013 report summarises the results. The second round of monitoring was based on this Procedure and Questionnaire [English | Russian].

The third round of monitoring started in 2013. A manual for monitoring experts is available and provides guidance on the monitoring process [English | Russian]. The monitoring methodology can be found in the annex to the ACN Work Programme for 2013-2015. Civil society is also encouraged to take part in the monitoring process and a practical guide is available in order to aid civil society representatives in the third round monitoring process [English | Russian].
