    The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) in collaboration with the University of Technology, Mauritius (UTM) with the support of the Mauritius Research and Innovation Council (MRIC) published a research study entitled ‘Barriers to youth engagement in the fight against corruption’, in December 2019. This study not only investigates the barriers to youth engagement but also identifies specific actions as well as revisits existing strategies based on the findings with a view to seek higher level of youth engagement.

    The findings reveal that though our youth are faced with few barriers in their engagement to fight corruption (namely, education system, fear, influence of parents and time constraints), they showed willingness to engage in the fight through a plethora of initiatives. In the light of these findings, a number of recommendations are made which require the collaboration of relevant stakeholders.

    The fight against corruption implies a change in mindset. This starts with education of the youth who can become game changers if they understand the importance of their engagement and also if they believe in the fight. It is crucial that all barriers to their engagement be removed to enable their active participation which is often subject to anti-corruption actions that motivate and inspire them to act in certain ways. This is a multi-stakeholder challenge and requires a concerted and collective actions. Youth, their parents, their educators, the community and the Ministry of Education have critical roles. Let us do everything possible to get youth on board to fight this common enemy.

    The nature and process of education can determine the extent to which our youth realise their roles and responsibilities – thus the duty of parents and teachers are key to the whole objective of youth engagement in fighting corruption and other malpractices.This is along term endeavour that requires sustained efforts. As teachers and parents we have a duty to display model behaviour that can be replicated by our youth.

    I have quoted from the excerpt and would evoke awareness of the roles of the stakeholders. Do we have concrete and defined roles that wlll inculcated to the youth of Mauritius????

    This is what needs to be understood by the stakeholders. It is expected that these roles are inculcated at school, at home and in the community. However, here we may wish to reflect on these roles driven by values like honesty and responsibility to be able not only to stay away from malpractices and corruption but also to be intolerant against corruption.
