A key part of any anti-corruption effort is educating people about what it is, the varied contexts it occurs in, how to recognize it when they see it, and the choices available to be made to deal with the situation.
As part of this effort in Indonesia, the film "Kita versus Korupsi" (Us versus Corruption) premiered last year in Jakarta and received widespread media coverage. It was produced jointly by Transparency International Indonesia (TII), MSI's USAID-funded Strengthening Integrity and Accountability Program (SIAP-1), and Indonesia's Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK). Comprised of four short films, "Kita versus Korupsi" has resonated with citizens, officials, government workers, and police officers. Each short film illustrates the everyday situations in which corrupt practices can appear, and educates audiences about the choices to be faced.
Please join us for this interesting discussion on educational efforts in Indonesia to curb corruption, and their effect. The event will begin with a screening of selected short films, followed by brief commentaries from the speakers, and a general discussion of the challenges facing anti-corruption efforts in Indonesia.
