Welcome readers, to this year’s Twelfth issue of Legist.
There are many problems in today’s world that are coming up as the greatest challenges. These challenges affect growth, development, and stability across the globe. But the pandemic of corruption is the most vicious among them. To control this on, 31st October 2003, the General Assembly adopted the United Nations Convention against corruption and designated 9th December as International Anti-Corruption Day, to raise awareness about corruption and of the role of the Convention in combating and preventing it.
The 2022 International Anti-Corruption Day (IACD) seeks to highlight the crucial link between anti-corruption and peace, security, and development. This is reflected by the theme of this year’s international day, “UNCAC at 20: Uniting the World Against Corruption”
On this occasion of International Anti-Corruption Day, we should come together and build the world a better place #UnitedAgainstCorruption.
We hope you find this issue of Legist built up around the theme #UnitedAgainstCorruption informative and enlightening.
