A training course sharing Korea’s best practices of anti-corruption policies, such as Integrity Assessment of public institutions and Corruption Risk Assessment, with 7 countries, including Indonesia, Vietnam, Ethiopia, and Rwanda, was completed.

The Anti-Corruption Training Institute of the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission (Chairperson Jeon Hyun-Heui, ACRC) provided “10th ACRC Training Course for International Anti-Corruption Practitioners” for 10 days starting from November 14 and held a completion ceremony on the 23rd in Seoul.

13 people from 7 Asian and African countries, including Nepal, Laos, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Rwanda, and Ethiopia, participated in the 2022 training course.

The ACRC designed the training course for foreign countries to build capacity for the effective establishment of anti-corruption systems.

To this end, the training course consisted of Korea’s major anti-corruption policies and systems that are highly recognized by the international community for their excellence, including

  • Integrity Assessment,
  • Anti-Corruption Initiatives Assessment, and
  • Whistleblower Protection System

In particular, public officials of the ACRC whose duties are policy enforcement were invited in the capacity of instructors so that they could personally share experiences of what they have realized while carrying out policies.

Moreover, this year’s training course included training sessions to enhance understanding of anti-corruption efforts made by the international community. To this end, experts from international organizations, such as the OECD, UNODC, and UNDP, were invited to deliver lectures.

The training course was organized to allow trainees from 7 countries to understand anti-corruption policy trends of the international organizations and provide them substantial opportunities to enhance anti-corruption capacities in a global society.

After 10 days of training, the trainees participated in the completion ceremony of the training course held at Four Points by Sheraton Josun, Seoul Myeongdong in the morning on November 23. The ceremony was composed of the delivery of certificates and farewell speech by Chairperson Jeon Hyun-Heui, and presentations on the participation in training course by trainees.

The ACRC has provided the ACRC Training Course for International Anti-Corruption Practitioners since 2013. Every year, the Commission provides training courses on Korea’s best practices of anti-corruption policies and IT-based anti-corruption systems, inviting trainees from relevant anti-corruption agencies in countries around the world.

This training course which marks 10th anniversary this year is based on needs and provided in various forms. Previously, courses were provided in English only, but since 2020, courses have been launched and provided in Russian at the request of countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, such as Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Mongolia. New training courses will be provided for French-speaking countries in 2023.

ACRC Chairperson Jeon Hyun-Heui said, “In order for countries around the world to achieve sustainable development, the ACRC will actively promote activities regarding technical assistance for anti-corruption capacity building of each country.”
