Corruption Prevention

Course Description

This course provides an overview of current issues and practices in preventing corruption in public administration for public officials who have responsibility for corruption prevention policies or practices (public servants) as well as students of public administration and other areas of social sciences.

Drawing on implemented practices submitted for the United Nations Public Service Awards category on Preventing and Combating Corruption in the Public Service, this course is intended to raise awareness of practical measures that help prevent corruption by building public administration capacity in countries with developing and transition economies.

The course focuses on the prevention roles of legal and regulatory frameworks, effective institutions and citizens. There is a final scored assessment at the end of the course, but there are unscored assessment tasks throughout the course that focus on the key learning outcomes of the course. References for further reading on key topics are also included.
