Judicial Ethics Training to Combat Corruption
This activity is part of the Judicial Integrity pillar of the Global Programme for the Implementation of the Doha Declaration, which was adopted by the Thirteenth United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice in 2015.
The Declaration reaffirms Member States’ commitment to: “Make every effort to prevent and counter corruption, and to implement measures aimed at enhancing transparency in public administration and promoting the integrity and accountability of our criminal justice systems, in accordance with the United Nations Convention against Corruption.”
The training tools are aimed at providing newly appointed and serving members of the judiciary with a solid understanding of the Bangalore Principles of Judicial Conduct and the requirements of Article 11 of the United Nations Convention against Corruption.
Strong demand for such tools was identified through cooperation with Member States under the Global Programme. The tools are planned to be finalized by 2018 and will then be translated into several UN official languages and Portuguese.
The package of training tools will consist of an e-Learning course, a self-directed course, and a trainers’ manual.
