The Conference of the States Parties (COSP) is the main policy-making body of the United Nations Convention against Corruption. It supports States parties and signatories in their implementation of the Convention, and gives policy guidance to UNODC to develop and implement anti-corruption activities.
The Conference was established, as per article 63 of the Convention:
- To improve the capacity of States to implement the Convention;
- To enhance cooperation among States in achieving the objectives of the Convention; and
- To promote and review the implementation of the Convention.
- The Conference meets every two years and adopts resolutions and decisions in furtherance of its mandate.
