International conventions

Many international anti-corruption conventions are binding also on Finland.

During the past decades, Finland has acceded to and thereby committed itself to comply with several anti-corruption conventions of various international organisations. The Ministry of Justice is the central authority designated to play a key facilitating role in the implementation and operation of these conventions.
