We are delighted to announce that our International Centre for Asset Recovery (ICAR)’s support to the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau in Tanzania is entering an ambitious second phase.
In its new report on Breaking the Silence around Sextortion, Transparency International references our work on the recent evolvement of the anti-corruption field towards “documenting and recognising non-monetary forms of corruption”.
Anti-corruption practitioners at Tanzania’s Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB) are now better able to translate corruption research and data into actionable anti-corruption insights.
Four graduates of our successful train-the-trainer programme have delivered high-impact training to over 300 law enforcement professionals in Tanzania and Zanzibar over the last year.
Between them, the trainers – themselves anti-corruption practitioners – have delivered multiple intensive training seminars and introductory courses on financial investigation, anti-money laundering, asset recovery and mutual legal assistance.
This quick guide draws on a more comprehensive blog by Claudia Baez Camargo published on the website of the Global Integrity Anti-Corruption Evidence (GI-ACE) research programme.
Find more details on the GI-ACE anti-corruption research projects led by Dr Baez Camargo’s team at the Basel Institute on Governance, as well as other pioneering research on social norms and implications for anti-corruption practice, at the end of this guide.
Anti-corruption officials in Tanzania have been upgrading their skills in specialised financial investigation topics with the help of the Basel Institute’s International Centre for Asset Recovery (ICAR) and a local trainer certified by ICAR’s train-the-trainer programme.
A new research project led by the Basel Institute's Public Governance team aims to help anti-corruption practitioners design more effective interventions by taking into account – and in fact leveraging – the informal relationships and social networks that underlie people's behaviour.
A summary of groundbreaking research into social norms and attitudes towards corruption by our Public Governance team has been published in Ellis, Jane (ed.) Corruption, Social Sciences and the Law – Exploration across the disciplines. Published by Routledge, the book is part of a series entitled The Law of Financial Crime.
