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. Finally, participants undertake a comparative study of national, regional, and international efforts to eradicate corruption. Upon successful completion of the seminar, participants receive certification from Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and ILI-ACLE.
The target group is senior managers from the public sector as well as from NGOs and civil society organisations in Denmark’s priority countries, which are counterparts to Danida supported development programmes or projects and who are dealing with anti-corruption or are involved in monitoring procurement and/or budget processes.
