This course is intended for anyone interested in following and understanding the basics of preventing corruption.
It is suitable for “beginners” as well as for those who already have knowledge about the prevention of corruption but are curious to find new and specific perspectives. It provides an overview of:
- forms of corruption and prevention tools,
- ethics and how codes of conduct promote ethical behaviour,
- conflicts of interest and ways of managing such situations,
- purpose and enforcement of post-employment restrictions,
- regulating management of gifts,
- aims of asset declarations systems,
- role of free access to information in corruption prevention,
- regulating lobbying activities,
- transparency of political financing, protecting whistleblowers,
- corruption risks in public procurement and measures to mitigate them, and
- the role of auditing in anti-corruption.
Through reflection exercises, quizzes and scenarios, the course puts on the spotlight ethical dilemmas and challenges in implementing anti-corruption measures. It engages the learners into exploring how to deal with them, for example when it comes to acceptance of gifts or properly managing a conflict of interest situation. It also brings clarity to the approach taken by the Council of Europe with respect to these issues, as contained in the standards set by the Council of Europe conventions, resolutions and other instruments, and provided in the recommendations of GRECO, the Council of Europe’s anti-corruption monitoring body.
The course will be presented at an online event, open to the representatives of anti-corruption agencies, judicial training academies and bar associations, other public institutions, and other interested parties to get acquainted with the structure and content of the course. The event will be held in English language.
When: Tuesday, 26 April, at 10:00 CEST
