Anti-corruption is a national agenda and the priority of the current government of Thailand, a nation of 60 million population and the second largest economy in the ASEAN region. Many measures to address the corruption and improve the performance of the public sector have been adopted.
While a variety of anti-corruption policies are implemented in the public sector, civic engagement is another key pillar to address corruption in the country. Youth, particularly, is an important population group that will shape the future of the country. Empowering the youth to refuse corruption in Thailand is a pre-condition for changing attitudes in the wider society and promoting a culture of integrity. However, attitudes of youth against corruption becomes a key challenge. A poll of 2,100 people across Thailand in 2013 reported that 63.4 percent of the Thai population accept corruption on the condition that they also benefit from it. 68.2 percent of young people aged under 20 share the same attitudes. To address this issue, UNDP has signed an MOU with the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC), the responsible government agency mandated to improve integrity education in the country, to provide technical support to NACC in variety of issues including the review and development of mandatory integrity curriculum for students at university level throughout the country.
With support from GAIN in this project, UNDP will provide technical assistance in developing quality integrity curriculum that will be institutionalized into the education system in collaboration with NACC. The mandatory integrity curriculum to be developed by UNDP will help enable new Thai youth in formal education to develop their own sets of ethics and civic responsibilities shaping their engagement and involvement as adult citizens in the future to work actively against a corrupt society. The Thai youth with newly strengthened integrity will also benefit the expansion of the Thai youth anti-corruption network, which offer extra-curricular activities for youths, to become an influential CSO that can immensely strengthen civic engagement in anti-corruption in Thailand and change attitude of wider society on corruption issue.
Implementation plan to improving attitude of youth against corruption results key outputs; 1) Integrity curriculum developed and provided to university students across Thailand, and 2) The Thai Youth Anti-Corruption network strengthened and expanded.
The NACC is presently developed learning curriculum and materials to standardize for corruption prevention and aims to disseminate to the educational agencies at all level to apply into their own curriculum. To align with the National Anti-Corruption Strategy phase 3 (2017-2021), each curriculum shall comprise 4 main topics; 1) Zero tolerance and shame of corruption, 2) Differentiation of personal and public interests, 3) STRONG: mind of sufficiency against corruption, and 4) Citizens and responsibility for corruption.
To advance the design and implementation plans in working with key implementing partners and their beneficiaries, specifically the undergraduate students on Integrity and Anti-Corruption Education, UNDP Thailand has been working on developing curriculums in collaboration with the NACC Sub-committee on Learning Curriculum and Materials preparation for corruption prevention, together with The Rajabhat University Presidents Council of Thailand, Office of the Higher Education Commission, Ministry of Education, and other academic institutions. In fully designing and implementing these key aspects of improving culture of integrity in Thailand through strengthened integrity education of the youth.
