Partners

This is an international collaborative project which 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

The Preventive Anti-Corruption Education Project is domiciled in the African University of Science and Technology’s Post Graduate Programme on Public Policy. 

Our Purpose

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, MDAs and stakeholders to build anti-corruption culture and enhance the national response to corruption risk.

Anti-Corruption Outcomes

It is only through a multifaceted approach that is driven by the foundation of anti-corruption education that greater risk mitigation is fulfilled.

Knowledge building

Strengthen the general and specialist knowledge of anti-corruption staff within Ministries, Departments and Agencies.

Public awareness

Contribute to the public education efforts of government and anti-corruption agencies.

Best practice

Benchmark anti-corruption education efforts and outcomes against international best practice.

Leadership

Training leadership that operate in the public sector on the provisions of anti-corruption laws and accountability.

Prevention measures

Strengthen accountability and ethical compliance structures within the public service.

International awareness

Promote giant strides being taken by anti-corruption organisations at and 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 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, the HaYa Incognito App will allow business to report and discuss risk areas without disclosing their identity.
