The Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Center (ROLACC)
In October 2008, the General Secretariat for Development Planning in the State of Qatar announced the Qatar National Vision 2030, which aims to transform Qatar into an advanced society capable of achieving sustainable development by 2030. Its goals are implemented under the principles of the Permanent Constitution, which protects public and personal freedoms, promotes moral and religious values and traditions, and guarantees security, stability and equal opportunities for all.
To ensure the continuity of Qatar’s commitment to these principles, and the efficient implementation of the National Vision, the state established the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Center (ROLACC), in partnership with the United Nations, in 2011.
This Center, which was created under the auspices of HH the Amir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, works to raise global awareness on corruption and empower efforts to combat its negative effects.
The Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani Anti-Corruption Excellence Award intends to advocate the importance of tackling corruption and encourage the implementation of the crucial measures set forth by the United Nations Convention Against Corruption, through gathering and broadcasting creative and outstanding achievements of anti-corruption projects by publicly awarding and honoring exceptional related efforts.
By highlighting exemplary models and promoting excellence and creativity in anti-corruption, the Award is to serve as incentive to greater motivation and as a tool to identify, recognize, honor and reward those who have shown vision, leadership, creativity, enthusiasm in, and commitment and dedication for tackling corruption, as well as the capacity to inspire others to replicate similar efforts.
