Afghanistan and Sri Lanka: Transparency International School on Integrity

August 17, 2020 - August 22, 2020

Beginning on August 17th, 2020, CLDP sponsored 8 Afghan students’ and 3 Sri Lankan students’ participation in Transparency International’s annual state-of-the-art anti-corruption and accountability training for future leaders. The 5-day online course focused on the latest developments in the field of anti-corruption and accountability in both the public and private sectors. The course also included a module on civic empowerment, offering real opportunities for students to implement their ideas in practice. The CLDP-sponsored students will now apply learned strategies to their work in Afghanistan and Sri Lanka in such diverse technical areas of public procurement, government engagement with civil-society, and anti-corruption advocacy. This effort to provide anti-corruption and accountability training for future Afghan and Sri Lankan leaders formed a part of CLDP’s objective to create a more transparent and favorable environment for economic growth in Afghanistan and Sri Lanka. 

Upcoming Programs

October 1, 2020 - December 31, 2020

 CLDP coaches will be working with the 2 Maldivian Vis Moot teams on written advocacy. The coaches will be conducting weekly webinars with the teams on helping them draft research their legal issues, formulate their arguments, and write their memoranda. First, the teams will focus on writing their claimant’s memorandum. Then, the teams will focus on writing their respondent’s memorandum. Once the teams have completed their briefs, they will focus on preparing their oral arguments.
