    Course Objectives

    The course includes case studies from the SSA region and proposes potential reforms. In particular, it will promote an understanding of the legal instruments, mechanisms, and strategies that need to be in place to both prevent and prosecute corruption. Participants will learn about the need for strong rule of law and how it relates to corruption. Finally, the training provides insights on anti-money laundering mechanisms to support the detection, tracing, confiscation and return, where appropriate, of corruption proceeds, and discusses the mechanisms of international cooperation designed to fight corruption and illicit financial flows.
