Community Development for Anti-Corruption Indonesia

In 2017, The Hague Academy welcomed 19 practitioners and officials from Indonesia for a tailor-made training on Community Development for Anti-Corruption. Through a diverse programme of presentations, workshops and field visits, we tried to answer the question ‘how do you convince citizens of their roles and responsibilities in combatting dishonest conduct by those in power?’. The participants tackled this question during a field visit to RNTC, a media training institute in Hilversum. The workshop challenged them to rethink their communication and outreach strategies. They also learned about the essential elements of persuasion and storytelling and participated in a radio-broadcast debate.

Main goal

The twelve-day course sought to promote local governance best practices and provide insights into improving public participation to combat corruption.


  • Improved knowledge and skills of participants on the theory and practice of anti-corruption and integrity;
  • Improved knowledge on creating awareness for the prevention of corruption and how to adjust the strategy of KPK to create sustainable collaboration with community leaders and civil society organisations in Indonesia;
  • BHAP developed with a strategy to disseminate and implement the knowledge gained;
  • Improved relationship and collaboration between participating Indonesian institutions, civil society organisations, and relevant Dutch stakeholders; and
  • More cooperation as a team between KPK and the associated stakeholders.


Nineteen participants were trained on Community Development for Anti-Corruption. The participants worked for The Corruption Eradication Commission of Indonesia (KPK) and their local partners from Bandung, Yogyakarta and Bali.
