Preventive Anti-Corruption Education Projects
An international collaborative project that is being driven by three partnering organisations with a purpose to drive international anti-corruption education efforts. The Partners include the following:
1. African University of Science and Technology
2. Institute for Governance and Leadership Studies in Africa
3. Global Risk Alliance Ltd
4. Anti-Corruption Education Network
The Preventive Anti-Corruption Education Project is domiciled in the African University of Science and Technology’s Post Graduate Programme on Public Policy.
The Preventive Anti-Corruption Education Project (PACEP) is a strategic intervention approach to support existing national capacity building initiatives and undertake assessment of capabilities and control measures with a view to improving Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDA) response to the anti-corruption efforts.
Through its education programmes and engagement, the project focuses on building greater connection between anti-corruption agencies, public and private sectors and other stakeholders to build anti-corruption culture and enhance the national response to corruption risk.
It is only through a multifaceted approach that is driven by the foundation of anti-corruption education that greater risk mitigation is fulfilled.
Strengthen the general and specialist knowledge of anti-corruption staff within Ministries, Departments and Agencies.
Contribute to the public education efforts of government and anti-corruption agencies.
Benchmark anti-corruption education efforts and outcomes against international best practice.
Training leadership that operate in the public sector on the provisions of anti-corruption laws and accountability.
Strengthen accountability and ethical compliance structures within the public service.
Promote giant strides being taken by anti-corruption organisations at an international level.
Private Sector Engagement
Engagement with the private sector can have a significant benefit in understanding the national corruption risk profile. To build a picture of risk and to engage business in mitigating the bribery and associated financial crime risk, a tiered approach is taken to corruption risk. This includes, where appropriate, the provision of training programmes, sharing of risk information through our incognito reporting solution, with project stakeholders to coordinate a response to identified risks and engaging business organisations with the outcome of introducing a business integrity approach.
To maximise the opportunity to receive information from the private sector on corruption risk, our incognito solution will allow business to report and discuss risk areas without disclosing their identity.
Project Advisory Board
Leadership through Inspiration
Our Project Advisory Board is comprised of national and international stakeholders including leadership of national anti-corruption agencies. The role of the Advisory Board is to review project performance and and provide necessary guidance especially in response to developments within the national approach. The Board will also suggest new interventions which it may be deemed appropriate.
