Delivering good public policy is hard at the best of times. There are usually legal mechanisms and structured processes to implement policies. However, when corruption is present good public policy is distorted. Corruption costs governments and businesses trillions of dollars per year, it adds substantially to costs of goods and services, but most importantly it damages policy objectives, diminishes trust and reduces public value.
This webinar, organized jointly by the International Anti-Corruption Academy, Stretton Institute of the University of Adelaide, and the Centre for the Study of Corruption at the University of Sussex, explores the types of corruption that exist in public administration and examines intervention strategies. It focuses on integrity breaches, conflict of interest and whistleblowing, and illustrates with corruption in a specific sector.
