Statement of Need

In today’s global landscape, effective governance, ethics, and anti-corruption reforms are of paramount importance for both public and private sectors. Corruption is a global phenomenon. It has negative effects. It deepens poverty, debases human rights and degrades the environment. It also derails development including private sector development unless corruption is prevented or fought effectively the economic and social gains of the past years will be lost. The core cause of corruption is lack of ethics in both public and private institutions. There is a crisis in ethics, lack of self-regulation or self-governance at individual level. In order to effectively fight or preferably prevent fraud, both public and private institutions should introduce appropriate reforms in areas vulnerable to corruption.
