By helping public services officers improve their performane, can we empower them against systemic corruption? Please share evidence, ideas.
Many public service officers are in a corrupt system and are not corrupt by choice. We need to find ways to empower and enable them. This could be through legal assistance, training, and recognition. Looking to validate and support this hypothesis?
Let us say Janette could have run into some vested interests. Now that she has a very high profile, she would it find it easier to resist that and it would also be difficult for others to push her around. There are many other examples like that around the world, which can help shape this idea. We need have belief and faith in people and find ways of helping them.
Why do this? Public service officials have a huge impact on our future as well as today. Usual model is to impact the governance through change in elected officials or fight these issues in court. Both are time consuming and not very productive, effective. If we drive the change from inside and are able to create enough momentum and critical mass, we can bring more sustainable and dramatic change.
