Countries in general, including the countries of the Middle East and North Africa, face unprecedented economic and social crisis, especially corruption practices in social, economic and administrative spheres of life.
The situation becomes more critical in the presence of an incubating environment for corruption where corruption practices find the protection and the climate for spreading, and perhaps the deficiency in the administrative work could lead to a state of mind in individuals that justifies corruption and finds excuses for its continuation.
This conference addressed these issues and discussed four main themes:
The studies and researches offered to the conference discussed the directions of the policies and practices to promote integrity and curb corruption in Middle East and North Africa countries and the member states in the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, as well as the nature of lessons learned from building a connected set of integrity mechanisms and operations and the requirements for implementing them.
