This report begins by discussing the definition of corruption, before turning to the different acts of corruption as they have been defined by the UNCAC. Then, it examines where the human rights framework could add value to the anti-corruption work. Special attention is given to the impact of corruption on the human rights of groups exposed to particular risks. Subsequently, the report examines more closely the ways in which corrupt practices may violate specific human rights and the protection of human rights and anti-corruption advocates. Finally, it explores the possibilities of collaboration between human rights and anti-corruption organizations.
