Public Administration, Strategic Planning and Decentralization (PASPD)

GNBI helps public administrators and financial officers develop skills to manage the transition from centralized, controlled systems to a decentralized market economy characterized by transparency, the free and rapid flow of capital and information.

GNBI projects explore the three most successful components of the fight against government corruption: prevention, investigation/enforcement, and education, in the context of a specific country. Participants are prepared and encouraged to raise public intolerance of corruption, to promote anti-corruption reforms at the local level, and to mobilize targeted, effective citizen campaigns to combat corruption.
