About

Project Description:

The project seeks to address the challenge of corruption that threatens peace in Liberia by assisting the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission to be alive to its responsibilities. The primary goal is catalytic, that is, to respond to the immediate need of the Commission to achieve functionality as key institution of good governance by building operational and public engagement capacity.

 

Peace building Impact: 

Impunity, greed and the lack of accountability were major contributing factors to the outbreak of the 14-year long Liberian civil war. In this new era of relative peace and stability, it is vital that public office holders exhibit high sense of integrity, accountability and transparency. The project seeks to promote these values by enhancing the functionality of the LACC and enabling it to check the abuse of public power and, thereby, alleviating a major source of public discontent and rebuilding confidence in good governance that ultimately would guarantee peace and stability

 

Outcome(s):

  • LACC fully operational, the Commissioners being able to exercise leadership and guidance, and the Executive Director and staff of LACC being able to provide effective and efficient administrative support to the Commission;
  • Second, a vibrant and capable LACC that meets the mandate to “investigate, prosecute and prevent corruption” will moderate the public outcry against corruption, build national consensus and mitigate the threat to peace and stability;
  • Thirdly, successful interdictions or prosecutions of corruption as a result of the work of LACC will reinforce the Rule of Law which is one of the key requirements for a stable pos-conflict Liberia. The respect for the Rule of Law contributes to peace and stability.

  • Functional LACC Secretariat
