Regional Workshop on “Strengthening Integrity in the Security Sector”

May 5 - May 6

RACVIAC – Centre for Security Cooperation in cooperation with the Regional Anti-corruption Initiative (RAI), is organising the Regional Workshop on “Strengthening Integrity in the Security Sector”.

The event will take place on 05 – 06 May 2021 via the online platform “Cisco WebEx”.

This two-day online Workshop will provide interactive lectures from recognized practitioners in the field and tour-de-table sessions for exchange of good practices among the practitioners

According to the available international and regional assessments and reports, corruption still poses one of the main challenges in South East Europe. Thus, continuous efforts in curbing corruption are needed both regarding prevention and suppression in order to reduce it and eliminate potential risks of any kind of misbehaviour.

Being aware of the fact that both prevention and the fight against corruption in the defence sector is a common challenge in the region, and considering that this specific topic needs to be treated multi-disciplinarily, RACVIAC and RAI have initiated joint activities in this field.

The general objective of the Workshop is to incorporate the anti-corruption approaches in the Security sector and to increase the capacity of the relevant entities for developing effective corruption preventive and integrity mechanisms. Furthermore, the relevant international standards and useful tools for prevention and suppression of corruption will be introduced and also best practices and lessons learned in the field of building integrity, whistle-blowing policies and future challenges will be discussed and exchanged

The participants are expected to be national mid-level representatives of the ministries of defence, internal affairs and justice – internal control units, professional standards units, as well as anti-corruption agencies and other relevant national institutions
