The United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) came into force on December 14th 2005, signalling a pivotal shift in international commitment and cooperation to fighting corruption. This has taken place in a context where governance assessment is increasingly being recognized as an essential feedback mechanism for good governance. The centrality of assessment for effectively combating corruption is recognized by UNCAC, which requires countries to undertake periodic evaluations of legal and administrative measures put in place to combat corruption in article 5 (3), among other related provisions.
