On 21-22 July 2020, the Council of Europe and the State Security Service of Georgia organised (SSSG) workshop on “Prevention of Corruption in Public Sector” for the representatives of the Anti-corruption Agency (ACA) and the Office of Prosecutor General of Georgia. The Anti-corruption Agency, established under the SSSG, is authorized to carry out measures of prevention, identification and investigation of corruption offenses.
During the workshop, participants discussed best practices of different countries in the area of prevention of corruption in public sector including conflict of interest, reporting mechanisms and whistleblowing, public procurement and the role of the Anti-corruption Agency. Important part of the workshop was dedicated to corruption proofing and risk assessment as well as the awareness raising and collaboration with civil society.
The activity was organised within the EU/CoE Partnership for Good Governance Project “Enhancing the systems of prevention and combating corruption, money laundering and terrorist financing in Georgia” (PGG II-Georgia), launched in January 2019.
