The impetus to organise this master-class stems from the overall concern over the increasing trend in ethical violations and the manifestation of corrupt activities in many African public service agencies in particular. Reform efforts in the region have so far produced mixed results because lack of accountability has become so entrenched and institutionalized.


Now there is increasing pressure on public service administrators to demonstrate personal integrity, to ensure public services are delivered with high standards of accountability and transparency, and with high levels of public confidence.
