TI/TCD Workshop, Dublin - 5 July 2007
The third of three seminars for development agencies focussed on strengthening accountability in partner countries and opportunities for civil society to contribute to the promotion of public participation in decision making. Led by Kulan Amin, TI’s Programme Manager for Poverty and Development, the interactive session drew largely from TI’s recently published discussion paper on Poverty, Aid and Corruption.
Participants also identified some international governance networks open to Irish membership including
- Civil Society Friends of the UN Convention against Corruption
- Publish What You Pay
- Tax Justice Network
Visitors are welcome to suggest other networks that would be of interest to Irish Development NGOs. Contact us for more information on the Civil Society Friends of UNCAC.

Prior to joining TI she worked for over 5 years with the European Commission in India managing an extensive portfolio of bilateral projects in the field of rural development and environment in India and Bhutan and more recently a water sector policy support programme in Rajasthan. Between 1996 and 1999 Kulan worked for the German Development Cooperation (GTZ) projects in India providing capacity building support to NGOs engaged in the areas of sustainable livelihoods, natural resource management and micro-credit.
