UNITAR Transparency and Anti-corruption Study-trip 2011

21-28 February 2011: Singapore


Developing nations are faced with systemic and interconnected political, administrative, economic, and social challenges. Key issues related to those challenges include some misconceptions about transparency and accountability within their public sectors, which allows for self-perpetuating corruption.

This new training programme provided learning opportunities to selected representatives of nations under conflict by taking them to Singapore to observe various government and not-for-profit organizations implementing state-of-the-art transparency systems or involved in anti-corruption best-practices research and development. A special focus was given to the relationship between transparency and development.
