Integrity Pioneers and Community Solutions to Combating Judicial Corruption

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The global fight against corruption depends on the effectiveness of judicial systems. National and international anti-corruption laws rely on fair and impartial systems for enforcement, and the judiciary has a key role to play in reducing corruption by acting as an effective safeguard and sanctioning the culprits. Unfortunately the judiciary is globally perceived as the second most corrupt sector (TI, 2013). Judicial officials can be part of the problem when they are themselves contributing to grand corruption and avoid to sanction corrupt elites. On the other hand judicial officials can be part of the solution when they take a clear stance against corruption.
The workshop aims to encourage dialogue among key stakeholders (judiciaries, civil society and development partners) on the role of judicial officials in fighting grand corruption and ultimately sanctioning the corrupt. It closely addresses the track “Time for Justice” by providing concrete tools and participative ways of identifying advocacy targets to promote judicial integrity, as well as through a reflection on judicial integrity and more generally the role of judicial officials in punishing corrupt elites. In doing so, the workshop brings valuable, context-applied solutions to strengthen the judiciary and supports capacity building.
