Course Description: The goal of this four-day course is to deepen participants’ understanding and knowledge of the potential of alliances between the public and private sectors to fight corruption. These alliances are particularly relevant in detecting and reporting corruption. They are also very relevant in understanding corruption risks and building a collective approach against bribery to which a large part of the society can adhere.
The course is conducted by the OECD and the IMF and uses both theory and case studies based on the experiences of the OECD and MENA countries. Participants are encouraged to also share their own national experiences. Speakers have a deep and varied knowledge of the topic from the public and private side. The course is conducted in an informal and frank manner to encourage general participation and lively discussions.
Course Objectives: Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to:
– Gain in-depth knowledge on how to enhance public/private dialogue in the fight against corruption;
– Learn how to manage projects that involve public and private stakeholders in the fight against corruption;
– Be provided with multiple and concrete examples of projects and how to maximize success and value for money; the examples are based on the OECD and peers experience; and
– Expand their professional networks and learning from other participants.
