International Anti-corruption Programme (Investigation, Corruption Prevention and Education Modules)


Course Overview

When the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) entered into force for China (including Hong Kong SAR) in February 2006, the Central People’s Government designated the ICAC as the authority for the Hong Kong SAR to assist other signatories in developing and implementing corruption prevention measures under Article 6 of UNCAC.  Against this background, the ICAC has strengthened collaboration with and offered capacity building programmes to anti-corruption authorities in other jurisdictions.   The theme of the programmes can be corruption investigation, corruption prevention and/or community education, or a combination of some of the modules depending on individual needs.  Besides, the programmes are usually arranged on an agency-to-agency basis, and can be arranged either in Hong Kong or in the country of the counterpart.
