The IIEP Policy Forum on Planning Higher Education Integrity (Paris, 18-20 March 2015) brought together nearly 60 higher education experts and stakeholders from around the world to discuss recent and innovative initiatives aimed at improving transparency and reducing opportunities for fraud or corruption at the university level.
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.
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.
Following the publication of the inaugural issue this week, the ETICO Bulletin will be published three times a year. This e-newsletter is designed to keep educational decision-makers, planners, experts, researchers and development partners informed about recent developments in the area of ethics and corruption in education.

IIEP recently launched a Russian-language version of its book, Corrupt schools, corrupt universities: What can be done?
