The Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission (ACRC) organized a training course designed to help build anti-corruption capacity of public officials from around the world from May 7th for 10 days.


The ACRC has operated the ACRC Training Course for International Anti-Corruption Practitioners every year since 2013 for public officials working at anti-corruption agencies around the world. This year, at the 6th training, 16 officials from 15 countries, including Columbia, Georgia, Kuwait, Senegal and Singapore, were selected out of 31 applicants in 18 countries.


The training course aims to improve practical knowledge and skills needed to develop and implement anti-corruption policies. The training program includes lectures on Korea’s major anti-corruption measures, which have won international recognition, such as the Integrity Assessment, Anti-Corruption Initiative Assessment, Corruption Risk Assessment, and protection of whistleblowers.


This year's course focused on Chapter 2 and 5 of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), which are being reviewed in the second cycle of the review mechanism. The training course covered preventive measures, including the development of anti-corruption strategies, assessment of corruption risks, and prevention of conflicts of interest, as well as asset recovery.


Furthermore, it dealt with international anti-bribery efforts, including Korea's Improper Solicitation and Graft Act, and ISO 37001 anti-bribery management systems.


At the welcoming ceremony of the ACRC Training Course, held at the ACRC in Sejong on May 8, Vice-Chairperson Lee Geonlee of the ACRC noted that under the UNCAC, the G20 Anti-Corruption Action Plan and the Sustainable Development Goals, a number of countries have recently been stepping up efforts to share knowledge and experience in preventing and combating corruption.


Mr. Lee said, “In response to such global efforts, the ACRC will continue to help other countries to enhance their anti-corruption capacities so that they can achieve sustainable development.”
