Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission (ACRC, Chairperson Jeon Hyun-Heui) held a number of anti-corruption public events for three days from Dec. 7th to 9th as Dec. 9th marked the World Anti-Corruption Day designated by the UN.
The World Anti-Corruption Day has been designated by the UN to commemorate the signing ceremony for the United Nations Convention against Corruption on December 9th, 2003 in which more than 90 UN members including the Republic of Korea participated.
ACRC has designated days before and after the World Anti-Corruption Day as the Anti-Corruption Weeks every year and run off various events to spread a culture of anti-corruption and integrity throughout the society.
This year, ACRC held various events mainly online via ACRC official YouTube channel “Gwon-ik Vision (which means vision for civil rights and interests),” etc. so that more citizens could join the events during the Anti-Corruption Weeks at anytime and anywhere.
From Dec. 7th, people watched “the integrity & fairness book concert” on YouTube channel “Gwon-ik Vision,” which provided an opportunity for people to have time to think about the value of integrity and fairness.
The integrity & fairness book concert consisted of two parts – in part I, the value of fairness was examined from various points of view and in part II, a shift in perspective on public whistleblowers were dealt with.
In the afternoon on Dec. 8th, awards ceremony was held for the anti-corruption contents contest in which the public participated. ACRC selected fifty winning contents from a total of 1,907 contents which were entered and gave certificates of commendations and prize money of 49.8 million won to awardees.
In the afternoon on Dec. 9th, “Integrity Live: Conflicts of Interest Prevention Act Special” was aired to commemorate the 4th Public Interest Disclosure Day and the 1st anniversary of the implementation of the Act on Prevention of Conflict of Interest Related to Duties of Public Servants.
“Integrity Live” is a performance-based integrity education program provided by the Anti-Corruption Training Institute (ACTI) for people to understand anti-corruption and integrity in an easier and more friendly manner.
Through the Integrity Live program, ACRC provided an online lecture for easier understanding of the Conflict of Interest Prevention Act and presented a musical titled “As If It Is the First Time”, a musical performance about conflicts of interest taking place in public institutions. The performance was streamed online in real-time through “Gwon-ik Vision.”
In addition, an “Integrity-Themed Song SNS Challenge” campaign was carried out for people to sing together the song “the Most Normal Integrity Story”, the prize winner of the integrity contents contest of last year.
ACRC Chairperson Jeon Hyun-Heui said, “I hope people could enjoy opportunities to reflect upon the value of integrity and fairness by participating in various public events themed around integrity during the Anti-Corruption Week.”
