The AFCOE Think Tank


Pan-African Counter-Corruption Assembly

On 2nd-3rd November 2023, the AFCOE will hold the Pan-African Counter-Corruption Assembly (‘PACCA’) at STIAS, to which the Ministers of Justice of all African states are being invited as well as leading figures from IGOs, NGOs, MDBs, finance, law, business and the public sector. PACCA will be a high-level, intensive international conference focusing exclusively on identifying integrated and coordinated strategies for effectively and efficiently countering corruption throughout Africa. The resulting Strategic Counter-Corruption Framework For Africa will be subject to National Conversations administered by the AFCOE in nations across Africa, where the framework can be adopted and implemented locally to tackle and defeat corruption at national level.

The Africa Counter-Corruption Dialogue

To be inaugurated in 2024, the Dialogue will be an annual event attended by African Heads of Government and their respective Ministers of Justice or equivalent together with other global leaders, captains of industry and the presidents of international governmental and non-governmental organisations. The Dialogue is expected to become Africa’s leading counter-corruption conclave.

The National Conversations

The National Conversations follow on from the Dialogue and focus exclusively on resolving domestic corruption problems within the overarching Strategic Counter-Corruption Framework For Africa.
