Corruption awareness is incredibly important to promote, especially in Qatar where this issue is one of the hot topics today. I will use examples and law measures from the newly established Administrative Control and Transparency Authority in Qatar to highlight the severity of the consequence on one’s self and how it may affect others. Moreover, the application will expand to expose all types of corruption, including but not limited to nepotism and embezzlement.I will use real human stories as the backbone of the application to capture user emotion; I intend to acquire these stories through conducting various interviews of different employee
Corruption can be prosecuted after the fact, but first and foremost, it requires prevention. Measures directed at both the public and private sectors include model preventive policies, such as the establishment of anticorruption bodies and enhanced transparency in the financing of election campaigns and political parties. States must endeavour to ensure that their public services are subject to safeguards that promote efficiency, transparency and recruitment based on merit. Once recruited, public servants should be subject to codes of conduct, requirements for financial and other disclosures, and appropriate disciplinary measures. Transparency and accountability in matters of public finance must also be promoted, and specific requirements are established for the prevention of corruption, in the particularly critical areas of the public sector, such as the judiciary and public procurement. Those who use public services must expect a high standard of conduct from their public servants. Preventing public corruption also requires an effort from all members of society at large.
The Convention requires countries to establish criminal and other offences to cover a wide range of acts of corruption, if these are not already crimes under domestic law. In some cases, States are legally obliged to establish offences; in other cases, in order to take into account differences in domestic law, they are required to consider doing so. The Convention goes beyond previous instruments of this kind, criminalizing not only basic forms of corruption such as bribery and the embezzlement of public funds, but also trading in influence and the concealment and laundering of the proceeds of corruption. Offences committed in support of corruption, including money-laundering and obstructing justice, are also dealt with. Convention offences also deal with the problematic areas of private-sector corruption.
