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

5

impact of a dysfunctional judiciary on individual people in particular and society at large, the

Programme can trigger a greater willingness among people to take action against corruption.

Such willingness from the public shall act as incentive for reformers to take a new stance and also

create political pressure points for policy reforms and change of behaviour among sector experts

and other actors. In addition, this enhanced awareness by the public can be channelled by the

Programme through simple and innovative ways of engagement to allow the public to politically or

socially sanction the corrupt. Finally, “service users” (including victims and witnesses of

corruption) need to be continuously provided with channels to redress their claims – something

that numerous TI Chapters already do through ALACs.

In summary, this theory of change, proven in many contexts, shows how greater knowledge,

understanding, evidence and concrete solutions – together with a greater demand from the public and

effective channels for people to act and redress their claims – can build the kind of collective,

knowledge-based advocacy pressure that can ultimately result in a sustainable change of behaviour,

policy and practice towards greater integrity, independence and accountability of the judiciary.
