Ukrainian local government officials whose daily duties involve preventing corruption have come to Poland to take part in training organized as part of this year's Eastern Partnership Academy of Public Administration.
While in Warsaw, they will be able to learn more about Polish experiences of fighting local corruption, including the government’s strategy for rooting out corruption, and about anti-corruption legislation. In addition, they will find out how the public administration operating in this field is organized, and what actions are taken to ensure that the conduct of Polish civil servants is more ethical. As part of their week-long stay, Ukrainian officials will pay study visits to the Internal Supervision Bureau of the Ministry of the Interior and Administration, and to the Regional Prosecutor’s Office in Warsaw.
Since 2011, the programme of the Eastern Partnership Academy of Public Administration has been run by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in cooperation with the National School of Public Administration in the framework of Poland’s development cooperation. Its aim is to strengthen government administration in the Eastern Partnership countries by organizing specialist training for civil servants. It helps to foster a professional corps of officials who will go on to serve as experts necessary to implement the principles of democracy, rule of law and a modern knowledge economy.
