Integrity, Independence and Accountability of the Judiciary – Centre of Expertise Programme
enforce anti-corruption laws, standards and procedures; and (iii)
– encouraging concerned
international institutions and the donor community to support judicial sector reform.
By engaging at these different levels, knowledge-based advocacy work will contribute to change of
attitude and change of practice in the judiciary and society at large. The result will therefore be a
substantial reform addressed not only to formal structures but aimed at a societal shift that would
transform the judiciary.
The Centre of Expertise Programme is currently being established and is scheduled to be launched,
subject to approval, by the end of 2014. It is structured around
three main components
knowledge and policy work; country projects; and training and technical assistance services.
Component A: Global Knowledge and Policy Work.
Running in parallel with TI Romania’s broad
domestic anti-corruption work, the Programme will focus on serving the knowledge, policy and
advocacy needs of the global TI Movement and global stakeholder community on judiciary-related
corruption issues and solutions, aimed at achieving the purpose and results outlined in the overall
result framework. Overall the Programme will:
act as a help desk and stimulate, coordinate and facilitate the development of knowledge (tools,
enable cross-regional communication between TI Chapters and other actors;
provide technical assistance and support for the initiation of national activities;
coordinate global representation and advocacy activities;
identify opportunities for global partnerships and managing global stakeholder relationships;
lead global fundraising efforts and managing global funds;
manage the disbursement and reporting of funds secured centrally;
collate data to feed into the Programme monitoring and evaluation system.
