Launched in 2021, the GlobE Network provides a platform for peer-to-peer information exchange and informal cooperation to better identify, investigate and prosecute cross-border corruption offences and recover stolen assets.  It was established under the auspices of UNODC, and aims to provide a quick and efficient tool for facilitating transnational cooperation in combatting corruption and to strengthen communication exchange between independent anti-corruption law enforcement agencies.
 
The GlobE Network is open to anti-corruption law enforcement agencies from UN Member States and States Parties to the Convention.  At present, 203 authorities from 113 countries have GlobE membership/auxiliary membership.  Many members of the IAP are also members of GlobE.  The IAP obtained observer status with the GlobE Network in 2023.
 
This webinar will inform prosecutors about the GlobE Network, its objectives, its key workstreams, and how prosecutors may be able to link into the network, via Members in their country, to improve the investigation and prosecution of transnational corruption cases.  It will also consider resources that may be available to IAP members, including the Directory of Open-Source Registries which brings together links to open-source registries from fifty countries in one place, enabling information to be obtained swiftly and effectively.
 
This webinar will be held in English and no interpretation will be provided.  All attendees will receive a certificate of attendance.  The webinar is open to all IAP organisational and individual members.
