In recent years, countries as different as Kenya, Mexico and the Philippines have witnessed increased activity in access to information initiatives and calls for more transparent and accountable governments. The development of technology centers, along with social movements demanding the right to information, have indeed encouraged an array of activities responding to calls for access to information.
IIEP was invited to contribute to the international short course on “Corruption, culture and moral psychology: from research to policy” in October 2017. The course, held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, was organised by Universitas Gadjah Mada with the support of UNODC and the Interdisciplinary Corruption Research Network (ICRN).
Corrupt practices, such as the misappropriation of educational funds or asking for illegal school fees, can cause significant financial losses to a country’s education budget and represent an unbearable burden for the world’s poorest. Improving transparency and accountability and introducing anti-corruption measures is therefore of utmost importance to improve access, equity and efficiency in the education sector.
At the invitation of the Communication University of China (CUC), IIEP delivered a series of lectures on fighting corruption in education on the CUC campus in Beijing, and participated in a forum on academic integrity attended by 100 Chinese universities.
Together with heads of state, international organizations, civil society and the private sector, IIEP will take part in the 16th International Anti-Corruption Conference from 2-4 September in Malaysia.
