The course, which the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, MAECI, has actively promoted, is meant to strengthen the capacity of Afghan judicial authorities and police forces to counter corruption in their country. The fight against corruption is one of Kabul’s highest priorities and it is in line with the cooperation strategy developed by the Italo-Afghan Joint Committee, that met in Kabul in April 2016.
The capacity-building initiative, which will run until 31 May, will take place both at LUISS School of Law and ANAC. The course on the instruments to prevent and suppress corruption will be organized into several seminars. The goal is to promote in-depth discussions and an exchange of good practices. The programme will also feature meetings to be held at the premises of Guardia di Finanza, the Ministry of Justice, the Justice Committee of the Chamber of Deputies and the National Anti-Corruption Directorate. The fact that of the eleven judges participating in the course four are women and two of them come from the province of Herat is considered a further proof of Italy’s commitment in the gender field and in that area of the Country.
