First GlobE Network Meeting

15 - 17 November 2021

As of 1 November 2021, authorities of more than 30 States have joined the GlobE Network. This enabled members to decide on the governance structure and priorities of the Network at the first meeting of the GlobE Network.

The first meeting, held from 15 to 17 November 2021 in a hybrid format, was composed of two parts:

  • an open session on the first day for all Member States of the United Nations, States parties to the Convention, representatives of Permanent Missions, anti-corruption authorities who have not yet joined the Network, and relevant international cooperation platforms and organizations;
  • closed sessions exclusively for the member authorities of the GlobE Network on the following days.

The open session was scheduled on 15 November 2021 from 10.00 to 13.00 CET. In order to accommodate different time zones, a repeat session (recording of the presentations of the morning session with live Q&A) was conducted from 14.00 to 17.00 CET on the same day. Simultaneous interpretation into Arabic, English, French and Spanish was provided. 

Authorities who applied for membership by 11 November 2021 were able to participate in the closed sessions.
