In 2013, The Hague Academy conducted 13 days of training on ‘Ethics & Integrity of Public Leadership’ for the staff of the Public Affairs & Parliamentary Support Trust (PAPST) from Zimbabwe. The programme’s overall objective was to assist the PAPST in informing Members of Parliament, local authorities and other stakeholders on anti-corruption instruments and educate regional (SADC) best practices, in order to promote an open, transparent and accountable culture of democracy and political participation in Zimbabwe.
- Participants will gain knowledge on the international framework of anti-corruption conventions and protocols and best practices;
- Participants will be enabled to train elected representatives and other public office bearers in anti-corruption instruments and accountability;
- Participants will be enabled to monitor and evaluate the results of these training activities; and
- Participants will be introduced to different accountability and anti-corruption mechanisms, from the conceptual idea and scientific research to best practices worldwide and ideas and tools for implementation on the local level.
