Capacity Building Programme

Background
Facing the unprecedented challenges and standing at the forefront of the ever-changing environment today, the global fight against corruption is no easy endeavour and cannot be fought in silos. Joint efforts from cross sections of society and different generations are of paramount importance to sustaining anti-corruption endeavours into the future. More than ever, we need the ideas, the energy and the leadership of young people to provide fresh impetus to building a corruption-free world.
 

Recognizing the critical role of young people in shaping a world with probity, the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) of Hong Kong, China, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the International Association of Anti-Corruption Authorities (IAACA) co-developed the Policy Guide for National Anti-Corruption Authorities on Meaningful Youth Engagement in Anti-Corruption Work (“the Policy Guide”) in December 2023 for encouraging and assisting anti-corruption authorities around the globe to meaningfully engage young people as a powerful anti-corruption force in shaping an integrity future for the world.
 

In order to shed lights on the youth engagement strategy and experience, IAACA and the Hong Kong International Academy Against Corruption (HKIAAC) of ICAC will organize a webinar, in which experts from UNODC, ICAC, the National Transparency Authority (NTA) of Greece, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) of Kenya and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) will share with anti-corruption practitioners their insights into and field stories about youth engagement. We are also delighted to have the support from the Global Resource for Anti-Corruption Education and Youth Empowerment (GRACE) Initiative of UNODC for this webinar.
