We can fight corruption in Palestine if we barricade at a preventive front. Bottom line, corruption should not be let to grow, we should nip it in the bud or minimize it with the help of a set of preemptive measures. This, at heart, is the reason d’être of the Academy.
The record of Palestinian anti-corruption experiences shows that we need to blot out the roots of corruption through the power of education, training and raising the public servants’ awareness of corruption risks and resistance mechanisms. To boot, the Academy will make every endeavor to bring a tide of change to the public perception of corruption as a plague all of us should stand against through enhancing and embracing the value system of integrity, transparency, and accountability, as well as safeguarding the public funds.
On the above grounds, NAZAHA’s mission to establish an academy specialized in integrity gains an added importance. NAZAHA will be there to provide knowledge and technical assistance through anti-corruption education, professional training, research, and knowledge and skill transfer in order to enhance the performance of corps missioned to prevent corruption and enhance integrity through effective and positive cooperation of all stakeholders from the government, civil society, and private sector. By the same token, the Academy will hold and take part in anti corruption and integrity-enhancement
