Follow up of Public Administration: Civil Society Participation

This section lists the national laws that were considered within the framework of the First Round to review the implementation of paragraph 11 of Article III of the Convention in relation to the mechanisms to encourage participation by civil society and nongovernmental organizations in efforts to prevent corruption. 

For ease of reference, this list is divided into the same categories used for the review of the implementation of that provision in the First Round:

  • General participation mechanisms

  • Mechanisms for access to information

  • Mechanisms for consultation

  • Mechanisms to encourage participation in public administration

  • Mechanisms for participation in the follow-up of public administration

Subsequent legislative developments in this area can be found in the national progress reports presented at the Committee of Experts’ meetings. Similarly, the country pages include links to official legislative search engines for those states that have them.
