International cooperation

The CBA cooperates with many international organisations and law enforcement agencies in other countries. The cooperation aims to exchange best practices, extend the knowledge on corruption, solutions and instruments applied abroad as well as to exchange information on current operational and investigative activities conducted by foreign services.

Due to the provisions of the Act on the CBA, in order to undertake cooperation with foreign entities, the Bureau has to obtain the Prime Minister’s consent

So far, the Bureau has obtained the consent to cooperate  with 50 countries and 12 international organisations

 

Additionally, the CBA belongs to international organisations, such as EPAC/EACN – European Partners against Corruption / European Contact-Point Network against Corruption.

In 2013, The Bureau in cooperation with the Polish National Police Headquarters organised the 13th Annual International Conference (EPAC/EACN), held In Cracow. 93 participants attended the Conference — heads of law enforcement agencies and anti-corruption institutions from: Poland, Malta, Slovakia, Croatia, Estonia, Luxemburg, Germany, Romania, Sweden, France, Hungary, Ireland, Denmark, Finaland, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Kosovo, Latvia, Austria, Portugal, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium.

Under the Programme Prevention of and Fight against Crime, the European Commission awarded a grant to the CBA for the implementation of the project titled: "Rising of Anticorruption Training System". The Lithuanian Special Investigation Service (STT) is the co-beneficiary of the project, the Latvian Corruption Prevention and Combating Bureau (KNAB) is the project partner.

The implementation of the activities has been planned for 36 months. The whole project consists of two components:

  • A series of six international anti-corruption training conferences addressed to representatives of the public administration, the scientific community and institutions involved in the fight against corruption. Nearly 160 participants attended the first four conferences, from: Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Hungary, Norway, Croatia, Moldova, Azerbaijan, Montenegro, Denmark, Macedonia, Austria, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Romania.
  • The launch of an e-learning platform (development of anti-corruption education tools and communication for public officials, entrepreneurs and the public in the framework of the three components: corruption in public administration, corruption in business, the social impact of corruption).

 

The e-learning platform was made available on the site https://szkolenia-antykorupcyjne.edu.pl/. The platform is addressed to broad audience: the central and local government, business community, but also to society.

Due to the wide scope of addressees, the training course is divided into three sections, each of which consists of 20 teaching hours:

  1. Corruption in public administration;
  2. Corruption in business;
  3. Social effects of corruption.

The participants can count on the support of an expert who will answer their questions through communication tools such as a chat and forum. To pass the training course, one must go through  different lessons, do exercises, test their knowledge and pass the final test. The completion of the training course can be confirmed with a roll-call diploma generated upon request of the participant.

The aim of the platform is to raise the level of public awareness of corruption and its prevention. If someone has already basic knowledge, the training course allows to systematize it and expand.
