The Open-ended Intergovernmental Working Group on Asset Recovery, called the "Working Group on Asset Recovery" is a subsidiary body of the Conference of the States Parties to the United Nations Convention against Corruption. This Working Group on Asset Recovery is responsible for assisting and advising the Conference of the States Parties in the implementation of its mandate with the return of proceeds of corruption. This function is pursuant to Chapter V of the Convention, which enshrines the recovery and return of stolen as a fundamental principle of the Convention.
Since its establishment in 2006, the Working Group on Asset Recovery holds one intersessional meeting per year, during which time participants are able to exchange information and develop recommendations to be presented to the Conference. This will be the sixteenth session for the Working Group.
