School of law launches anti-corruption master training program

VietNamNet Bridge – While the heads of the Hanoi National University (HNU) and the School of Law, one of its member schools, affirm the importance of the anti-corruption training program, state officials are still concerned about the curriculum and job prospects of graduates.

From 2018, the School of Law will begin organizing the training program of masters of law in public administration and anti-corruption.

This is the first training program of this kind in Vietnam. It is designed to train professionals with knowledge in state governance and corruption prevention, such as embezzlement prevention and fighting for social and international organizations, businesses, academic institutions and media organizations.

Nguyen Dinh Duc, head of the HNU’s Training Division, said Vietnam needs to intensify the work of preventing and fighting against corruption, because corruption is hindrance to the society’s development.

This is the first training program of this kind in Vietnam. It is designed to train professionals with knowledge in state governance and corruption prevention, such as embezzlement prevention and fighting for social and international organizations, businesses, academic institutions and media organizations.

Duc affirmed that the training program won’t overlap with the law, including criminal law training. 

The Government, in its report sent to legislators in late 2016, commented that corruption has become prevalent with a number of high-profile officials connected to serious cases.

Meanwhile, the significance and importance of the training program remain unclear to other people.

Lawyer Tran Quoc Thuan, former deputy chair of the National Assembly Office, said he was surprised to hear about the training program. 

“I cannot understand why there is a program on producing masters in anti-corruption. What for? Which jobs will they take?” he said. 

“Therefore, the people who need to learn about anti-corruption must be cadres and civil servants,” he said, adding that it would be better to organize research activities and set up faculties on corruption prevention in Communist Party and public administration schools.

Vo Kim Son, former Dean of State Management and Personnel under the National Academy of Public Administration, said he wonders what students would be taught.

“To fight corruption, it is necessary to teach in another way, not in such an academic way,” he commented.

Luu Binh Nhuong from the National Assembly’s Committee for Social Affairs said the issues related to fighting embezzlement and the lessons about morality and lifestyle are mentioned in the curricula designed for general education. 

He thinks it would be better to establish special topics on anti-corruption rather than organize a training program.

In related news, government’s officials and experts have repeatedly urged to revise the anti-corruption law.
