AKIPRESS.COM - The OSCE Programme Office in Dushanbe, together with Tajikistan’s Institute for Public Administration, organized a training for representatives of the state judiciary and public institutions dealing with corruption issues from 18 to 20 December 2019. Participants were familiarized with the newly developed anti-corruption curriculum for civil servants. The curriculum will help to further drive anti-corruption efforts in the country; with the aim of building a professional and knowledgeable public administration.
Participants discussed international standards in combating corruption and best methods for development of strategic anti-corruption documents. The course also highlighted that preventing conflicts of interests is a fundamental anti-corruption measure in the public service.
“Public officials and civil servants are one of the main public messengers to spread the word that corruption can be handled effectively,” said Jaroslavs Strelcenoks, course trainer. He added that the public administration needs to show integrity, professionalism and dedication in fighting corruption to persuade citizens to adhere to the same principles.
The event is a continuation of the support to the host country, provided by the OSCE’s Programme Office in Dushanbe, to instill anti-corruption knowledge and foster integrity within the public administration.
