Over the past decade,corruption, together with its devastating effects on social and economic development, has emerged as a major global concern and challenge.

The international community has addresses this issue and provides international instruments to tackle corruption in the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC).

Today, when practices of corruption have become more complex with sophisticated modus operandi, there is an urgent need for a smaller and more informal network of professionals for a better collaboration on a range of related issues in the spirit of sincere cooperation and mutual assistance.

In this context, the Southeast Asia Parties Against Corruption (SEA-PAC) is established to fulfill this significant role.
