National conference on corruption in Timor-Leste
March 27, 2012
Our local partner, the Centre of Studies for Peace and Development (CEPAD), hosted a national level conference in Dili, Timor-Leste on Friday 23rd March to discuss what is commonly referred to by the Timorese as ‘KKN’– Corruption, Collusion, and Nepotism.
Corruption had been identified as one of four issues that stands in the way of lasting peace in Timor-Leste. Over 900 Timorese from all sectors and levels of society had participated in a nationwide research initiative to identify obstacles to lasting peace.
The ‘KKN Working Group,’ made up of national experts, discussed their findings over the last 5 months.
