GOPAC’s Regional Chapters work within a local context, strengthening the capacity of parliamentarians to address issues of corruption and promote good governance. The GOPAC Global Secretariat serves as the global point of contact for GOPAC and its Regional Chapter.
Parliamentarians in the Regional Chapters work towards fighting corruption through mutual support and knowledge sharing. They identify opportunities to implement international and regional accords and treaties in their area of the world and strengthen the capacity of parliamentarians to fulfill their oversight role in parliament. Examples of activities include oversight of anti-corruption conventions and their implementation (GOPAC Latin America and the Caribean), access to information legislation (ARPAC) and broadening activities at the national chapter level (APNAC).

GOPAC’s National Chapters hold a special position in helping individual members within their own countries to combat corruption. National Chapters are particularly effective in implementing change and producing results due to their ability to focus on specific areas of concern. Activities within GOPAC’s National Chapters have included: introducing a number of bills related to fighting corruption and money laundering in the legislature and ensuring that said bills are passed and implemented by the government of the day; obtaining significant public visibility and political significance; serving as professional development support for members and engaging civil society in anti-corruption efforts.
