On 8-9 November 2018, APLU Deputy Director, Prof Sope Williams-Elegbe, joined 14 other experts from around the world in Vienna, Austria, to develop university level modules on anti-corruption for the United Nations’ Education for Justice Initiative (E4J) under the banner of the UNODC.
The meeting brought together 15 academics from different disciplines and regions with expertise on various aspects of anti-corruption.
The aim of the meeting was to discuss the development of the E4J University Modules on Anti-Corruption and to provide the module developers with an understanding of the E4J initiative, the work of UNODC’s Corruption and Economic Crime Branch (CEB) and the objectives for the modules.
The participants discussed with UNODC experts various aspects of the modules, including content issues, relevant international norms, standards and tools as well as cross-cutting issues and potential linkages between the modules and the work of the CEB.
The multidisciplinary insights shared at this meeting are expected to contribute to the development of a series of 14 modules designed to support lecturers in delivering anti-corruption education in diverse disciplinary and regional settings.
