RWI will be hosting a panel, where Deputy Research Director, Morten Koch Andersen from RWI will be speaking about corruption.
“Human Rights and Corruption City Challenges and Possibilities”
Corruption is a major obstacle to human rights and sustainable development goals. It weakens states, diverts resources from essential services, and erodes the rule of law. To combat corruption, societies should prioritize transparency, accountability, and good governance. This involves understanding international human rights standards and values.
Education and awareness programs are vital, especially at the city level. An integrated approach is needed, addressing institutional reforms and ethical frameworks while promoting the rule of law and human rights.
Effective anti-corruption efforts require engagement from decision-makers and increased citizen participation. Collaboration among civil society, academia, businesses, local governments, and the media is essential.
