This study is based on analysis formed for Anti-Corruption Measures in local government and on best practices from several other countries, including Sierra Leone, Ghana, Uganda, Afghanistan and South Africa, among which provides a descriptive picture of what can be done to decentralize anti-corruption measures in local government structures of governance. This study also confirm the findings that Corruption is not in any way a new development neither is it limited to one part of the world as reported elsewhere, and that there are generally three areas that contribute to corruption in the public and private sectors. The main areas are: Embezzlement, Theft and Fraud. Even by concluding that corruption has always been and will always remain with us do not relieve government of the necessity to do something about it. Government failure to address the issue of corruption will not stop it from strangulating the system of governance. Therefore, it is of importance that appropriate measures are instituted to safeguard public interest base on ethics and a value system. - Nov 2019

Governance Commission-Liberia


The National Vision 2030, adopted by the Government in 2012, speaks of Liberia becoming a “Middle Income Country” by 2030. The engine that should drive efforts to achieve this goal is human capacity formation. Education, as a means of human capacity formation, is a powerful driver of development and one of the most important instruments for improving health, gender equality, skilled employment, peace, and stability. How we envision and define the end product and specify the process of education to achieve that end must be given serious consideration. What does a Liberian graduate, exiting the educational system, contribute to the national agenda? What is he/she capable of doing? How effectively is the end product of the educational system linked to the achievement of the national goal of becoming a middle income country? Liberia’s educational system must be linked to national development, with the youth as a vital resource for self-actualization, community involvement, and nation building. This study seeks to explore how the products of Liberia’s educational system are prepared by that system to drive a national effort to become a middle income country.
