GOPAC’s Global Task Forces (GTFs) are regionally representative groups of legislators and former legislators who champion specific issues critical to the fight against corruption. GTF members are animators for their GTFs within their respective regions, and promote the GTFs’ agendas with their peers and their national parliaments. It is through our GTFs that GOPAC helps our members introduce legislative and oversight changes in national parliaments to control corruption, promote good governance, and hold the executive accountable to the people.
GOPAC currently has five GTFs:
