On Tuesday the 16th of January, the Accountability Lab and partners, including the Nelson Mandela Foundation, LifeCo UnLtd and Democracy Works Foundation will launch Integrity Idol South Africa which aims to inspire a national movement to honour, encourage and connect honest civil servants. We want to move away from “naming and shaming” corrupt leaders and towards “naming and faming” those bureaucrats that are working with integrity and doing the right thing even when no-one is watching.
This project will draw upon the successful implementation of Integrity Idol since 2015 in Nepal, Liberia, Mali and Pakistan – which garnered millions of viewers (read more about Integrity Idol in the Guardian, BBC and Foreign Policy). The winning Idols have now gone on to lead important reform processes in their countries based on the trust and credibility generated through Integrity Idol; and the Accountability Lab is now working with them to expand their integrity networks to do everything from developing national policies to redesigning curricula for civil service training schools.
Please join us for the Project Launch on Tuesday the 16th of January
Time:10 for 10.30 am
Location: The Women’s Jail, Constitution Hill
