Combating corruption: Evaluation of the implementation of the Federal Council’s resolution of 19 October 2008 – Federal Council

Key facts

A recommendation of the Council of Europe Group of States against Corruption (GRECO) called on Switzerland to step up the exchange of information, coordination, prevention and awareness-raising among stakeholders exposed to the risks of corruption. To address this issue, the Federal Council set up the interdepartmental working group (IDWG) on combating corruption in December 2008. This mandate is limited to ten years. The Federal Council will use the activity report of the IDWG and the evaluation of the Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) as a basis for the further development of its anti-corruption policy.
