Anti-corruption officials in Tanzania have been upgrading their skills in specialised financial investigation topics with the help of the Basel Institute’s International Centre for Asset Recovery (ICAR) and a local trainer certified by ICAR’s train-the-trainer programme.
A new research project led by the Basel Institute's Public Governance team aims to help anti-corruption practitioners design more effective interventions by taking into account – and in fact leveraging – the informal relationships and social networks that underlie people's behaviour.
A summary of groundbreaking research into social norms and attitudes towards corruption by our Public Governance team has been published in Ellis, Jane (ed.) Corruption, Social Sciences and the Law – Exploration across the disciplines. Published by Routledge, the book is part of a series entitled The Law of Financial Crime.
This eye-opening exploration of social norms and attitudes towards corruption appears in Chapter 12 of Ellis, Jane (ed.) Corruption, Social Sciences and the Law – Exploration across the disciplines, published by Routledge on 15 May 2019 as part of a series entitled The Law of Financial Crime. See the publisher's flyer with full details of the book and a 20% discount code.
The Director General of the Tanzanian Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB), Diwani Athumani, officiated the first group training on the intelligence process to PCCB intelligence officers.
The Intelligence Directorate is a new venture for the PCCB, following a recent restructure of the Bureau authorised by State House.
This training course, which took place from 2–3 April 2019, was conducted by Phill Jones, Senior Investigation and Asset Recovery Specialist at the International Centre for Asset Recovery.
Four members of Tanzania’s Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB) have delivered three weeks of intensive training workshops to fellow PCCB staff. The trainers are PCCB officials who graduated from the “train the trainer” programme of the Basel Institute’s International Centre for Asset Recovery (ICAR) in 2017.
We are delighted to announce that the partnership between the Basel Institute and the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB) of Tanzania in support of Tanzania’s efforts to combat corruption and recover stolen assets will continue.
