Anti-Corruption and Ethics

Building capacity for those who need it most, power of the people, learning by doing,  and acting globally and locally – those are the ways we have chosen to fight corruption.

Anti-corruption has always been ACER’s field of interest due to its key role to the further development of the country. ACER works in close collaboration with the public and private sectors as well as civil society to support efforts to prevent corruption, improve remedies to address wrongdoing when it occurs, as well as work towards improving behaviours, norms, and standards needed to sustain anti-corruption efforts.

Causes about Un-Ethical and Corruption Behaviours in Education System in Albania ( June 2020 –March 21)

The project research on The Causes Behind the Lack of Ethics in the Education Institutions, is a follow up from the national research “Ethics in the Education System in Albania” published in April 2017. This research is consequent to a request made in at least two of the last conferences (Shkodra and Vlora) by the teachers, students and parents present, to identify the perceived causes behind the corruption and the lack of ethics in the Albanian Educational system.

After analyzing the pull and push factors, which are leading the people toward choices they wouldn’t choose, recommendations were made to the government for drafting and implementing policies that fight against the causes. The project aimed to change the reality by working on both levels: a) Influencing policymakers and,  b) involving the citizens to effect this change through community approaches and their active participation in decision-making processes.
