Designing a strategy for anti-corruption knowledge management

Knowledge Management (KM) covers a wide range of activities aimed at facilitating the collection, documentation, use and dissemination of information. Anti-corruption KM programmes are still relatively new. Examples of bodies established to centralise and disseminate information on corruption in a systematic way include the National Corruption Observatory in Morocco, the Anti-Corruption Observatory in Cameroon, Advocacy and Legal Advice Centres (ALACs) in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and Romania and Anti-Corruption Resource Centres (ACRCs). When setting up such an institution, strategic decisions must be met on the scope, structure, channels and nature of a KM system depending on its target audience and intended purpose. Some of the challenges involved include making knowledge accessible to targeted audiences through the most appropriate channels, addressing potential resistance to knowledge sharing as well as maintaining quality standards and controls over time.
