Housed in the Global Policy Centre for Governance since September 2022, UNDP’s Anti-Corruption for Peaceful and Inclusive Societies (ACPIS) global project is UNDP’s main vehicle for providing policy and programme support on anti-corruption and coordinating UNDP’s anti-corruption work both internally through UNDP regional hubs and country offices and externally with other relevant partners.

UNDP’s work on anti-corruption has been instrumental in advancing the transparency, accountability, and integrity agendas at global, regional and country levels. The ACPIS global project contributes to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by integrating anti-corruption solutions in service delivery sectors, strengthening the institutional capacity of institutions to prevent and address corruption, leveraging technology and innovation for integrity and anti-corruption, and leading anti-corruption knowledge and global advocacy on anti-corruption.

As an intern with ACPIS at the Global Policy Centre for Governance, you will earn an understanding of how international organisations function, gain knowledge on key and acute global governance challenges and be part of a diverse and dedicated team working on promoting inclusive, accountable, and effective governance, and anti-corruption. You must have strong time management and organisational skills, work as a team player, and be comfortable working on a variety of tasks.
