EU project holds training on administrative anti-corruption inquiries for Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia
May 24, 2016
A four-day regional training on risk-based administrative anti-corruption inquiries was held from 17 to 20 May 2016, at the Council of Europe’s headquarters in Strasbourg, as part of the South Neighbourhood Anti-Corruption Project (SNAC2), implemented under the EU-Council of Europe (CoE) joint programme “Towards Strengthened Democratic Governance in the Southern Mediterranean” (South Programme II).
The training brought together practitioners from several inspection bodies, audit authorities and anti-corruption agencies of Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia. Participants studied the types and methods of administrative inquiries, public procurement risks, financial and accounting analysis techniques, and other aspects of administrative investigations, presented through the lens of a risk-based approach.
The EU-CoE Joint Programme “Towards strengthened democratic governance in the South Mediterranean” – South Programme II, 2015-2017 – funded with a budget of €7.4 million – aims to contribute to the reinforcement of democratic governance in the Southern Mediterranean region by supporting the development of new constitutional and legal frameworks; contributing to the creation and expansion of a common legal space between Europe and the Southern Mediterranean and fostering regional co-operation in the field of human rights, Rule of law and democracy.
Co-operation activities under the South Programme are primarily directed to Morocco, Tunisia and Jordan and open to other countries from the Southern Mediterranean, through regional activities or targeted bilateral activities. (EU Neighbourhood Info)
