The Anti-Corruption Network for Eastern Europe and Central Asia (ACN) is a regional anti-corruption programme which covers the countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia. The ACN brings national governments from more than 20 countries in the region together with the OECD governments, as well as civil society and business representatives. International organisations and international financial institutions also take an active part in ACN activities, which include regular regional conferences; country reviews and monitoring; and thematic projects on selected priority issues.
Established in 1998, the main objective of the ACN is to support its participating countries in their fight against corruption by providing a regional forum for the promotion of anti-corruption activities, exchange of information, elaboration of best practices and donor coordination.
The participating countries are: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Latvia, Lithuania, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, the Russian Federation, Serbia, Tajikistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.
