Anti-Corruption & Access to Justice (AA2J)
Corruption in Uganda is widespread and seen as one of the greatest obstacles to the country’s economic development as well as to the provision of quality public services. According to Transparency International’s Afro-barometer Survey of 2015, Uganda is the 139th most corrupt country among 167 countries sampled in the world. Corruption-related challenges in the country stem from a weak separation between the public and private spheres, leading to extensive client related practices and patronage, as well as widespread political corruption. Such corruption challenges are exacerbated by weak law enforcement, which fuels a culture of impunity, particularly with regards to high-ranking officials involved in corruption schemes. Over time, the face of corruption has been changing from individualistic based malpractices to highly organized syndicate corruption involving many players hence complicating dealing with corruption over time.
Programme Thematic Areas: Anticorruption campaigns, case documentation and management, referral and complaints support initiatives like focal point desk
Programme goal: To contribute to the fight against corruption, promote accountability and improve access to Justice
Programme target: State and non-state accountability institutions, structures, civil society groups and citizens.
