The Rule of Law and Anticorruption Center (ROLACC) and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) are pleased to announce the launch and first iteration of the e-learning course on “Anticorruption and Sustainable Development: Building Inclusive and Transparent Societies for All”.
This tool aims at strengthening the competencies required by delegates of States and other relevant stakeholders for overcoming some of the challenges to combat corruption. In addition to learning its causes and consequences for sustainable development, participants will also understand the benefits of its prevention for the enhancement of the rule of law and the enjoyment of Human Rights.
Corruption hinders sustainable development in all countries, regardless their stage of development. In this regard, mainstreaming knowledge about this problematic pursues the transformation of discriminatory social institutions, laws, cultural norms and community practices, such as those limiting access to property rights or restricting their access to public space.
In order to tackle its root causes and consequences as well as to find solutions for prevention, accountability and redress, the impact of mainstreaming knowledge is a powerful resource towards transforming the lives of individuals and societies as a whole. Therefore, the creation of spaces to raise awareness represents an opportunity to enhance capabilities and share good practices towards a culture of learning.
As a contribution to this endeavor, the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Centre (ROLACC) and the United Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) have brought together their expertise and practical knowledge to collaboratively developed this course. It has been designed for 6 weeks (40 hours), starting with its first iteration from 10th November 2020 -its launch day- to 22 November 2020.
It is based on UNITAR’s sound adult learning pedagogical principles and follows the UN Disability-Inclusive approach, which recognizes that combating corruption requires improving accessibility services, information, and participation of persons with disabilities. Hence, this tool includes sign language video and narrative audio. A certificate of completion and a certificate of participation will be issued, according to some parameters.
Registrations will be open from 23rd November to 10th January 2021, at:
UNITAR and ROLACC wish you an enjoyable learning experience!
