DCAF supports Morocco in its commitment to integrity building and fighting corruption

 

On 21-22 June 2017 in Rabat, The Central Authority for the Prevention of Corruption (ICPC) and DCAF organised the second awareness-raising workshop on strengthening integrity within the security sector. The session was attended by 15 persons, including representatives of the National Security, Royal Moroccan Gendarmerie, National Defence Administration and Customs.

An international expert moderated the workshop, which aimed to raise the awareness of Moroccan security sector personnel and oversight bodies to prevent and fight corruption. During the two-days training, the participants were able to reflect and to associate the concepts of integrity-building and good governance of the security sector, as well as to familiarize themselves with good practices in strengthening integrity and fighting corruption in the security sector.

The ICPC and DCAF signed a cooperation agreement on July 2016, which gives priority to capacity building and prevention of corruption within the Moroccan security sector. The workshop is part of a series of activities outlined in the resulting joint action plan.

The workshop was made possible thanks to the financial support of the DCAF Trust Fund for North Africa (TFNA).

Welcome to the DCAF Trust Fund for North Africa website

Since 2011, many countries in the Middle East and North Africa have lived through extraordinary and turbulent political changes.

In their search for a better future, countries in North Africa have identified security sector reform as a key to ensure democratic transition, to restore public confidence in the state and its institutions, and to prevent violence.

To respond to these changes, the member states of the Geneva Centre for Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) in 2012 created the Trust Fund for North Africa.

The Trust Fund’s purpose is to rapidly and flexibly respond to requests for assistance from the governments of Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Morocco.

To name a few examples, the Trust Fund assists with comprehensive programmes and projects to improve parliamentary oversight, strengthen citizens access to information, put in place accountability mechanisms and generally to build trust between citizens and authorities.
