The first summer anti-corruption school in Kazakhstan - a series of classes in 18 cities, was organized by "Transparency Kazakhstan" Public Foundation with the support of UNDP, OSCE, Zertteu Research Institute and the State Anti-Corruption Agency from July to August, 2019.
More than 700 participants - journalists, human rights activists, representatives of NGOs and compliance services, students, teachers, as well as public figures took part in the classes across the country.
Participants had four sessions, covering a review of international experience in the fight against corruption, a study of Kazakhstani anti-corruption legislation, strategies to overcome the negative consequences of corruption, as well as applied tools and step-by-step recommendations in the field of combating corruption, based on real-life examples of effective anti-corruption cooperation.
The school was aimed at fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals - Goal 16 in particular, aimed at ensuring the rule of law and human rights.
UNDP will further support the areas that contribute to the enhancement of civil capacity and participation of civil society in governance and anti-corruption work.
