The FCDO-funded Anti-Corruption Evidence programme works to deepen engagement practitioners and stakeholders have with research. Recently, Gerhard Anders and Matthew Page held private sessions in Nigeria and Malawi to present their research findings on what works and what doesn’t in law enforcement practice with senior policymakers and law enforcement officials. The event will focus on lessons learnt, best practices and the way forward for law enforcement tackling high-level corruption. This event will share how their research was received, with helpful advice on how to conduct and engage with policymakers.
The Cities of Integrity project at GI-ACE has developed a series of animated videos illustrating the specific issues of corruption in urban planning and its consequences for cities and their publics. These animations have been used in their workshops, social media, and direct engagement with particular groups such as early career planners. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the animators, the research team, and a representative from the Zambian Institute of Planners. We will discuss the advantages and limitations of using animated film in workshops and communications around integrity-strengthening as a response to corruption in planning. The Cities of Integrity team will reflect on their experience working with the production house in translating their research into accessible language and visuals and hone in on the question of impact together with the Zambian Institute of Planners as a key stakeholder.
