Global Judicial Integrity Network

Corruption in the justice system - whether actual or perceived - poses a real threat to confidence in the rule of law. With this in mind, boosting judicial integrity is an integral part of the Doha Declaration Global Programme.

The Judicial Integrity initiative aims to assist judiciaries across the globe in strengthening judicial integrity and preventing corruption in the justice sector, in line with article 11 of the United Nations Convention against Corruption. For that purpose, the initiative has facilitated the creation of the Global Judicial Integrity Network.

UNODC has been providing assistance to Member States in strengthening judicial integrity, accountability and professionalism since 2000, by supporting the development of the Bangalore Principles of Judicial Conduct and producing various tools to help judiciaries to that effect.

Leading by Example: Corruption Reporting Mechanisms in the Moroccan Judiciary

As an International Association of Women Judges (IAWJ) member and as a Moroccan magistrate, I strongly believe that corruption and unethical practices significantly affect development and progress, in addition to hindering the stability of states. Preventing judicial corruption requires synergy to consolidate the principle of integrity and the moralization of public life, as well as link responsibility to identifying and combating corruption. In this vein, the Moroccan judiciary has been improving both its corruption reporting mechanisms, as well as targeting corruption within the judiciary itself.
