Promoting Government Integrity and Anti-Corruption, 19-31 May 2014, Kampala

Through a series of lectures, case studies, site visits, group discussions, presentations and action planning, this course critically examines the interplay between good governance, democracy and development across the developing world.

The course enables participants to fully understand the structural sources of corruption, the elements of good governance, and identify the interventions required to fight corruption and bad governance--thus promoting development. Participants explore development tools used to measure corruption to determine the effectiveness of anti-corruption schemes towards the design of an effective anti-corruption programme and integrity system. Participants are also guided in drafting action plans within the priorities of their organizations, thus linking course learning to the workplace.
