Is South Africa’s anti-corruption system improving?


Corruption is a complex and politically charged issue. This means that measuring government’s success in preventing it is often difficult. Not only is corruption hard to quantify but so too is the performance of government agencies tasked with tackling it.

Against the backdrop of state capture and widespread corruption allegations, this seminar will consider the role and contribution of the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) – a key part of South Africa’s multi-agency anti-corruption system.

New products available on the ISS anti-corruption portal will be profiled. The portal is a tool to improve knowledge about corruption and how government is responding to it.
