Advancing Transparency and Accountability in Sri Lanka: Strengthening the Technical Capacity of CIABOC
With a grant from the United States Department of State - Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DRL), the East-West Management Institute is implementing a project to advance transparency and counter corruption in Sri Lanka, by providing technical support to the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC). The Advancing Transparency and Accountability in Sri Lanka: Strengthening the Technical Capacity of CIABOC project is helping to build CIABOC’s capacity to document, process, monitor, and resolve corruption and bribery cases, and will help develop an automated case management for tracking CIABOC’s caseload. The project also seeks to improve CIABOC’s outreach and communications with other government agencies, CSOs, and the public. As part of this effort, EWMI will administer a small grants program to provide NGOs with funding to become more engaged with anti-corruption activities, and to improve coordination with CIABOC. The grants program will be coordinated with the Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL).
