Supporting the new Asia-Pacific Integrity School and Fellowship in Public Integrity and Anti-Corruption
The Basel Institute is delighted to announce its support for the new Asia-Pacific Integrity School.
The week-long intensive programme, a partnership between Transparency International Australia and Griffith University’s Graduate Certificate in Integrity & Anti-Corruption programme, is designed to equip participants with the advanced policy and analytical skills they need to undertake effective integrity and anti-corruption measures.
Delia Ferreira Rubio, Chair of Transparency International, will open the Integrity School in Brisbane, eastern Australia on 19 March 2020. Professionals and young people from across the region are expected to attend, both in person and online.
The Basel Institute is sponsoring the appointment of His Excellency J C Weliamuna PC as a Distinguished Visiting Fellow in Griffith University's Public Integrity & Anti-Corruption Research programme in 2020. Mr Weliamuna, a leading human rights and constitutional lawyer, joins a set of top international anti-corruption experts as an instructor at the Integrity School.
He will also support the university's wider anti-corruption programme, drawing on and feeding back into the Basel Institute's expertise in anti-corruption and asset recovery.
Mr Weliamuna was formerly the Sri Lankan High Commissioner to Australia and founding director of Transparency International Sri Lanka. His career includes prominent roles as a board member of Transparency International, chairman of Sri Lanka's Special Presidential Task Force on Recovery of Stolen Assets, and consultant to the World Bank and International Labor Organisation. He has participated in election monitoring in Rwanda, Indonesia and Pakistan, and is a past Eisenhower Fellow. In 2012 he received the National Peace Council's Citizen Peace Award.
We look forward with anticipation to the first edition of the Asia-Pacific Integrity School and to our extended collaboration with Mr Weliamuna and Griffith University.
