The Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Centre (ROLACC) on Thursday celebrated the graduation of a second batch of master's students in 'Corruption, Law and Governance' in partnership with the British University of Sussex.
During the ceremony, 18 students from Qatar and other countries graduated in the presence of HE the Attorney-General and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Centre (ROLACC) Dr Ali bin Fetais al-Marri, HE the Minister of Justice and Acting Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs, Dr Issa Saad al-Jafali al-Nuaimi, President of the Administrative Control and Transparency Authority Hamad bin Nasser al-Misnad
and ambassador of the United Kingdom to Qatar Ajay Sharma.
In a speech during the ceremony, HE al-Marri congratulated the graduates for obtaining a master's degree in corruption, law and governance from a university considered as one of the oldest universities in this field.
He said the University of Sussex is the best university to offer this kind of programme, especially since it has a research centre specialised in the field, which is the first of its kind in the world. Also, as the judicial system in Britain is one of the best in the world, ROLACC chose the University of Sussex to offer this programme.
Addressing the graduates, HE al-Marri said that what they have achieved comes with the direct support of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, as he believes that justice and equality must be one of the established principles in the country, stressing that Qatar supports everything that will achieve justice and meet the objectives of combating corruption and achieving good governance.
He added that the students have obtained an advanced degree in combating corruption from the most prestigious universities in the world, and they must be cautious because they have chosen a risky path.
HE al-Marri stressed that the main objective is to serve the homeland under the wise leadership of His Highness the Amir and the service of humanity.
The President of the University of Sussex Professor Adam Tickell, praised the collaboration with ROLACC to establish the master's programme in 'Corruption, law and governance', which was adapted to suit the nature and specificity of the region to meet the aspirations of those in charge of this field.
Adam Tickell reviewed the experience of University of Sussex in the field of anti-corruption programmes through its research centre and its long experience in master's programmes, adding that the university this year graduated 26 batches in this specialisation around the world.
The master's programme is offered by experts and academics from the University of Sussex who come specifically to Qatar to give lectures and seminars to students interested by the programme from all over the world.
