On 16th of November, the Task force on Training and Transfer of Knowledge (TTK) organised a webinar on the topic of “Importance and Useful Examples about Good Practice Sharing”. The aim of the webinar was not only to introduce best examples but also encourage the implementation of such practices in each country. This was already the second webinar organised by the members of the TTK which gathered almost 60 participants.
A representative of Federal Bureau of Anti-Corruption (BAK), Ms. Daniela Hatzl started the webinar by presenting about the “EU Integrity” (EPAC/EACN Working Group) initiative. She introduced the Manual on preventing corruption and promoting integrity - a guideline on strengthening cooperation, mutual understanding and the capacity for self-assessment to promote integrity and tackle corruption across the EU. In addition, Hatzl explained the main objectives of the working group and sub working groups, the development process, the main results and recommendations.
A presentation about Regional Anti-Corruption Initiative (RAI) was introduced by Ms. Aneta Arnaudovska. RAI is the Southeast Europe anti-corruption platform, which supports regional dialogue among governments, civil society, and experts. “Aware that corruption knows no borders, RAI in collaboration with existing and new partners such as youth, academia, and the media, look for better solutions together, through coordination of effort, peer-to-peer exchange of experiences, and lessons learned,” said Arnaudovska.
The third presentation was about the “Integrity Academy” initiative introduced by Mr. Edvinas Chorostinas, a representative of the Special Investigation Service of the Republic of Lithuania. “Sharing of practices and experiences is the best way of learning. This is the approach taken by the “Integrity Academy” which provides a platform for exchanging the best anti-corruption practices, where leading experts within the field of integrity share their know-how and advice on how to develop a robust anti-corruption system in organisations,” said Chorostinas.
The webinar was concluded with an active discussion, as befits a webinar on such a topic. Full video can be found here.
