We believe that Integrity offers perhaps the single largest opportunity for improvements in sustainable and equitable development worldwide. The safeguarding of human rights, financial market regulation, national elections, and environmental protection are among the key institutions that are easily subverted by integrity failures. We would like to invite you to ourIntegrity Leadership Course jointly organised by Integrity Action and the Strathmore Governance Center (Strathmore University) between April 29 and May 4, 2013 in Nairobi, Kenya.

The course offers three policy labs:

· Integrity in Local Governance and Service Delivery policy lab provides a critical review of social accountability efforts, highlighting the approaches, challenges, successes and potential ways forward in the most challenging of environments. Social accountability in fragile and conflict-affected states is a relatively new phenomenon in governance discourse. It has emerged with the lessons that top-down anti-corruption approaches have often failed. With increasing support to fragile and conflict affected states, efforts to build accountability and trust and strengthen the social contract between state and society in the wake of crisis are needed.

· Bottom Line Impact: Redefining Business and Financial Integrity policy lab aims to support honest public sector and business leaders in addressing financial management challenges upon taking office to implement appropriate controls to ensure integrity of financial system and officers. It explores other intangible elements of financial integrity that are crucial to enhance trustworthiness of leaders and their organizations, and equip them with skills, knowledge and competence to mitigate risks that standard financial audits are unable to detect. It develops new insights into business integrity in reviewing strategies for collective action and engaging multiple stakeholders to strengthen the integrity performance of your business, and to foster an organizational learning culture in your company to promote business integrity.

· Access to Justice: "Bridging the streams of justice” policy lab addresses integrity issues of justice systems that are often left out in the reform agenda. It explores the experiences of countries that have sought to bridge the traditional, customary, modern and transitional justice systems, innovative means by which the weaknesses of each system are being redressed and how their integrity can be strengthened. Participants will study the role of each key actor in this process and the building of a collaborative approach to reform that involves the judiciary and its senior members, the executive branch and legislature, the bar, political actors, business, the media, traditional leaders, civil society and international actors.

The course is specifically designed to support the challenges being encountered by line managers in government, business and civil society concerned with protecting their programmes and maximising their leverage and influence on the governance and regulatory environment.

Past years’ lecturers include Abdul Tejan-Cole (former anti-corruption commissioner of Sierra Leone, OSF Africa Director), Nuhu Ribadu (former anti-corruption commissioner of Nigeria), Hon. Justice Clotilde Nougbode Medegan (former Chief of the High Court of Justice of Benin and member of the UN Commission of the Legal Empowerment of the Poor), George Soros (philanthropist, the founder of Central European University and Open Society Institute), Paul Collier (professor at Oxford University’s Economics Department) and Dr. Vaira Vike-Freiberga (former president of Latvia).

Attending the courses can be an important opportunity to interact with managers facing similar challenges in other countries and other institutional environments. It is a cost-effective means of raising both skills and awareness of the manifold opportunities – and challenges – in integrity reform.
