IEA’s strategy; a corruptionfree Afghanistan

Corruption is a significant challenge for human society, a factor that undermines a country’s economic growth, social justice, and political stability. Unfortunately, over the past twenty years of occupation, corruption rapidly spread within the structures of Afghanistan’s previous government to the extent that instances of bribery and high-level embezzlement have occurred in the daily lives of some citizens. Combating corruption and eradicating this phenomenon is not a simple task. On the one hand, it requires determination and firm resolve from governments, and on the other hand, all governance sectors need to be reformed and revitalized with transparency and accountability. Understanding the adverse effects of corruption, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is committed to taking specific steps to combat this phenomenon and establish a transparent and accountable system. With the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan takeover, government officials stated that ensuring transparency and accountability in all government affairs, combating any form of corruption in national and military structures, and putting an end to this phenomenon were priorities. The system purportedly placed profound and fundamental steps to prevent corruption with complete determination and strong will. The Islamic Emirate initiated the fight against various types of corruption based on Islamic principles and endeavored to ensure complete transparency and accountability in both the public and private sectors, conducting affairs at the national level with complete transparency. The Islamic Emirate has attempted to prevent corruption at the national level by creating a comprehensive legal framework, entrusting wrongdoers and offenders to the law, and swiftly and impartially addressing such cases. Transparency is the primary component of the Islamic Emirate’s anti-corruption strategy. It plays a constructive role in organizing government affairs, preventing embezzlement, unnecessary expenses, and the loss of national wealth. To achieve this goal, the Islamic Emirate is committed to creating transparency in all matters related to budget allocation, financial transactions, and procurement to prevent corruption and ensure that available resources are utilized for the benefit and welfare of the people. The Islamic Emirate has initiated public awareness programs on combating corruption to create a healthy society and inform citizens about its adverse effects. The current system has begun organizing and implementing similar programs at the national level to educate citizens about the adverse effects of corruption on their lives, encourage them to prevent corruption, and encourage them to cooperate with the government in combating this phenomenon. The Islamic Emirate has initiated efforts to strengthen the institutions of the system engaged in combating corruption, both structurally and in terms of operational capacity, in light of Islamic principles and existing laws. Particularly within the organizational structure of the current system, there exists a supreme audit office, and efforts are underway by this organization to continuously monitor and audit the activities of Emirate agencies. The Islamic Emirate has paid full attention to protecting national assets and treasures and has made efforts through various mechanisms to prevent theft, loss, and misuse of national assets. The Islamic Emirate has prioritized the recruitment of skilled individuals in all Emirate institutions and has begun the recruitment process based on merit through a transparent process. Efforts are also being made to educate personnel through a number of educational programs both domestically and internationally to move the country forward in terms of development and providing necessary services to citizens. In addition to the government, non-governmental organizations also have a responsibility to combat corruption, promote transparency, and foster a culture of accountability. The Islamic Emirate has initiated joint efforts with institutions and people’s organizations to ensure that the affairs of these institutions are conducted transparently and services are provided to citizens with complete trust. Technology increases efficiency and transparency in governance, prevents corruption, and delivers services faster and more effectively. In line with this principle, the Islamic Emirate has initiated efforts to invest in electronic (digital) platforms in the areas of e-government and procurement management, customs, and financial affairs to organize administrative and financial matters and eradicate corruption. In light of Islamic values, the Islamic Emirate has begun joint efforts with religious scholars, tribal leaders, and some social institutions to perceive corruption as a practical evil and contrary to ethics by organizing various Islamic and ethical education programs in Afghanistan. Furthermore, the governing system has incorporated anti-corruption messages into sermons, religious and educational programs, and comprehensive awareness campaigns to raise public awareness of the dangers of corruption and encourage collaboration with the government in rooting out this phenomenon.
