The Centre of Studies for Peace and Development
The Centre of Studies for Peace and Development (CEPAD) is a national NGO working across Timor-Leste’s 13 municipalities. Through Participatory Action Research and Interactive Dialogue, CEPAD contributes to breaking the cycle of violence and creating a climate in which Timorese can feel represented and address priority issues in a peaceful and durable manner.
In 2007, CEPAD launched the Programme for Research and Dialogue for Peace (PRDP), a countrywide consultation in response to the violent political crisis of 2006. Corruption, collusion and nepotism (locally known as KKN) was identified as one of four key priority issues to address in order for the country to move forward in the transition to sustainable peace.
CEPAD’s 2014-2018 Strategic Plan pursues three main entry points identified through a participatory process as key milestones to fight corruption:
  1. A permanent civic education campaign on corruption incorporated into the national education curriculum in Timor-Leste.
  2. Mechanisms for public engagement and denouncement of corruption developed at the local level and resulting in actions taken by citizens to combat corruption.
  3. Key policy and public opinion makers, united under a Group Promoting Change (GPC), influence key institutions to bring about change.
Starting August 2015, CEPAD will reach out to all 13 municipalities to equip focal points with with tools to educate local communities on the concepts of KKN, as well as the mechanisms available to denounce KKN.  In total CEPAD will train 78 focal points (1 per sub-municipality, 6 per municipality) to engage communities in their sub-municipalities.
Objective: Develop a training module on KKN for communities countrywide to address KKN as an obstacle for sustainable peace in Timor-Leste.
Reporting to the CEPAD Director, the Consultant will work closely with the KKN and AV Team to ensure the timely delivery of all project activities. This includes coordinating the development of the training module, collateral materials and resources.
Using CEPAD’s Corruption Action Manual (‘Matadalan Ba Asaun Hasoru Korrupsaun’, 63 pages in Tetun) as a basis, the Consultant will develop a comprehensive training module covering the issues and solutions presented therein. The training module will serve as a tool to train trainers who will in return be able to help communities understand the concepts of KKN and the avenues available for them to denounce cases of corruption. This includes detailing which institutions people can report cases of corruption to, examples of corruption cases as stated by the penal code, and explaining the relevant legislation and its sanctions.
The training module package will include:
  • Introduction and purpose of anti-corruption training module
  • KKN – definition and issues
  • Examples of KKN and Mechanism to prevent and combat KKN in the Timorese context
  • What to do when confronted with instances of KKN
  • Desk research and review of existing references including interviews
