27 Mar Getting Government Right
In today’s global climate, discussions and reflections on ideal government are critical. Designed for participants involved in Danida-supported development activities from around the globe, the upcoming course on Getting Government Right: Rights-Based Approaches, Government Integrity and Anti-Corruption provides an opportunity for practical engagement on good governance today with tools to support the application of human rights, democracy and development. Implemented by the International Law Institute – African Centre for Legal Excellence (ILI-ACLE) in collaboration with the Danish Fellowship Centre (DFC), the programme will run from July 31 – August 11, 2017.
Through a series of lectures, group exercises, site visits and discussions, participants get to appreciate the structural sources of corruption, the elements of good governance and identify rights-based approaches required to fight corruption and bad governance. Participants are also guided in drafting action plans within the priorities of their organisations’ activities thus linking course learning to the work place. Site visits are organized to institutions such as the Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Assets Authority (PPDA), the Office of the Inspector General of Government (IGG) and the Anti-Corruption Division of the High Court – all in Uganda.
Previous participants to DFC-supported progammes have come from numerous countries including: Afghanistan, Bhutan, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Federal Republic of Somalia, Ghana, Guatemala, Indonesia, Kenya, Lebanon, Mozambique, Nepal, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Palestine, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Somaliland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
