Integrity, Independence and Accountability of the Judiciary – Centre of Expertise Programme


Component B: Country Projects.

Country projects supported by the Programme will seek to

multiple the impact of TI Chapter’s domestic work by creating change at the national level, facilitating

collective advocacy and providing opportunities for participating TI Chapters to:

develop or expand country-level knowledge, e.g. through targeted research and corruption risk

mapping to understand gaps and loopholes in the judicial process;

identify and manage opportunities for local partnerships and stakeholder relationships;

provide input on global tool development;

adapt and implement global interventions at the national level;

engage people at grassroots level;

communicate on national-level activities, sharing relevant knowledge and lessons learned.

TI Chapters interested in implementing a country project will be selected on the basis of clear criteria,

and invited to submit project proposals to the Centre of Expertise which will grant Programme funding

to the most promising proposals aligned with the focus of the Programme. In cases where TI is not

present in a country, Programme funding may also be granted by the Centre of Expertise to projects

proposed by other organisations. TI Chapters will be encouraged to also mobilise their own resources

(individually or together with other Chapters, e.g. on a regional basis) to facilitate their further

participation in the Programme.

TI Romania as the global Centre of Expertise will support country project design, development and

implementation by TI Chapters, lead global fundraising efforts, coordinate – in close cooperation with

TI Chapters and the TI Secretariat – advocacy activities at the international level, and manage global

funds and donor reporting.

Component C: Training and Technical Assistance.

The Programme will train interested

stakeholders at different levels (providers and users, incl. grassroots/ local level) to help them better

understand judicial anti-corruption systems and practices, and to learn how to monitor judicial

proceedings and report suspicious behaviour. The Programme will also deliver technical assistance

interventions to judicial institutions and stakeholders to help them enhance their anti-corruption

capacity and shape their internal anti-corruption programmes. In countries where TI Chapters

participate in the Programme, these services will be provided by the local TI Chapter with the support

of the Centre. In a country where the local TI Chapter does not wish to participate in the Programme,

does not (yet) have sufficient knowledge of the sector, or does not wish to offer these services, they

could be directly provided by TI Romania as Centre of Expertise (or another TI Chapter closely

involved in Programme implementation) in cooperation and agreement with the local TI Chapter. Both

approaches will seek to further strengthen the capacity of the concerned local TI Chapter.

Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning.

Monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) efforts

will cut

across all components to capture how different activities contribute to achieving the long-term and

intermediary results of the Programme, and how this learning can be applied to continuously improve

future implementation. For a more detailed overview please see the MEL section.
