AMMAN — Rasheed Integrity and Transparency (Transparency International - Jordan) on Sunday launched Integrity Week for the second consecutive year, with the support of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs and funding from the Zivic Programme / Institute for Foreign Relations, under the supervision of the Integrity and Anti-Corruption Commission and in cooperation with the University of Jordan. 

According to Abeer Madanat, Executive Director of "Rasheed", Rasheed devoted this week to focus on "digitalisation and its role in enhancing integrity and fighting corruption", as technology has become one of the most important ways to combat corruption, especially since we have an opportunity to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of public administration and the involvement of citizens through technology, according to a statement from Rasheed.

Madanat highlighted that digitisation strengthens the links between government institutions and citizens and reduces the possibility of corruption by ensuring transparency in the provision of services digitally, which enhances the concept of integrity transparency and increases oversight over the electronic services provided.

Madanat added that "Rasheed" will be holding four awareness lectures on: Digitisation and its role in promoting integrity and fightingcorruption, as well as the role of digitisation in conflict management and resolution in order to build community peace and digital advocacy campaigns.

In addition, the scouting activities and its role in promoting integrity and fighting corruption will be discussed, as "Rasheed" believes that this type of activities contribute to creating leaders who are able to rely on themselves and work within a team, said the statement.

The activities will make them open to the other and have a high sense of responsibility, which will support the anti-corruption process, and enhances their integrity values, according to Madanat.

She pointed out that "Rasheed" works through its youth-related programmes to enhance the concept of integrity and transparency through innovation, communication with the local community and the involvement of youth in decision-making processes, by adopting societal issues which the participants examine in depth to provide innovative solutions and recommendations that seek to solve societal issues.
