Promoting integrity and addressing corruption in the justice sector
Several assessments and forums, including the e-discussion on judicial integrity, jointly conducted by UNDP, U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre and AP INTACT in 2013, have identified the importance of addressing corruption in the entire criminal justice chain, but also highlighted the need for more research on patterns of corruption and on experiences and best practices in promoting integrity and addressing corruption.
To document experiences and best practice and to develop tools and methodologies for risk assessments, UNDP Bangkok Regional Hub (BRH) has launched a call for expressions of interest requesting UNDP country offices, partner governments, practitioners, and other organizations, including CSOs, to share information on initiatives that have substantively contributed to promoting integrity and mitigating corruption in the criminal justice chain (such as vetting process in the selection of judges, monitoring of court sessions by civil society, corruption risk assessments, or automation of court procedures that helped mitigate corruption risks).
If you have experiences to share, please return the completed template to Ms. Liviana Zorzi Liviana.email@example.com at UNDP Bangkok Regional Hub by 4 May 2015. Selected case studies (based on relevance, results achieved, and lessons learnt) will be presented at the experts meeting to be held in Malaysia during the first week of September (exact date to be confirmed).
