This affiliation relationship can contribute greatly to the success of maintaining high standards of ethics, of being vigilant about the enforcement of anti-corruption measures and of being able to demonstrate how training and leadership can make a difference.
A key opportunity is the facilitation of connections to communicate and network across all of the members of both organisations, which will enhance the capacity of both organisations to promote knowledge about ways to prevent corruption and build strong integrity systems.
