How do we position ourselves in situations when our loved ones are sick, or need some service, and are dependent on corrupt officials? What is the difference between corruption and how do you recognize it in everyday life at school or university? These questions were addressed to the panelists of the meeting on corruption in the public sector held in Sarajevo, as well as the project YouTHink Saying NO to corruption funded by the Embassy of the United States of America in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
More than 80 young people had the chance to talk with Erduan Kafedi, the head of the Anti-Corruption and Quality Control Office of Sarajevo Canton, Anes Hrnji from the School of Economics and Business in Sarajevo, and representatives of the civil society organizations Emina ehi and Ena Por a.
The fight against corruption is a long-term process in which institutions, the judiciary, the academic community and most importantly, you young people should be involved because they are the key to that process. According to Kafed i, it is necessary to work on improving the informal education of young people on the fight against corruption, to inform them about the methods and methods of reporting corrupt actions, and to conduct research and analysis on the perception of corruption among young people, as well as the results of the work done by the Office in the fight against corruption.
