KOREA | ACRC runs virtual anti-corruption training for countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia

The Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission (ACRC) of the Republic of Korea will run an online training course for three days from May 25, 2021 to share its anti-corruption polices and experiences with countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

Organized by the Anti-Corruption Training Institute of the ACRC, the training course is designed to help build anti-corruption capacities of public officials in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

Due to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's course is provided as a real-time online course, bringing together 34 public officials from anti-corruption agencies of 12 countries—Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Mongolia, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.

The training course will cover Korea's major anti-corruption policies including Corruption Risk Assessment and whistleblower protection and reward program, which have won international recognition as best practices in the anti-corruption field.

The virtual course will also introduce the latest anti-corruption reforms and achievements in Korea including the enactment of the Act on the Prevention of Conflicts of Interest of Public Officials, the operation of the Anti-Corruption Policy Consultative Council meeting chaired by the President, and the implementation of the Act on Prohibition of False Claims for Public Funds and Recovery of Illicit Profits. During the course, the participants will also be able to watch various anti-corruption training videos with Russian subtitles, which the ACRC recently produced for public officials and the general public.

Since 2013, the ACRC has hosted a training course for international anti-corruption practitioners every year. The training course conducted in the Russian language was launched in 2020 to address a steady increase in the need for anti-corruption training in the region where Russian is widely spoken.

Jeon Hyun-heui, Chairperson of the ACRC, underlining Chapter VI of the United Nations Convention against Corruption which provides for technical assistance and information exchange, said "the ACRC will actively address the increasing need for Korea's anti-corruption training programs."
