Around the world our GOPAC members are fighting tirelessly towards a world free of corruption. Among these many dedicated fighters are individuals or groups that exemplify to the highest degree what it means to be a GOPAC member. They have internalized GOPAC’s core values of INTEGRITY, ACCOUNTABILITY, COLLABORATION, and DIVERSITY into every aspect of their lives. Their commitment to the fight against corruption is demonstrated through past or current initiatives.
We will all learn from these members. Sharing their stories is integral to strengthening our global fight against corruption. To recognise such members, we introduced the GOPAC International Anti-Corruption Award in 2014.
The winner of the GOPAC International Anti-Corruption Award is named a GOPAC Ambassador, is featured in our communications products throughout the year and called on to represent the organization at international events. Most importantly, the winner will be a source of inspiration to the anti-corruption movement because their actions and character echo a common message: corruption can be challenged.
