In early June, Muriel Poisson from IIEP advised the Council of Europe’s Committee on Culture, Science, Education and Media on measures to engage youth in the detection of corruption and the enforcement of anti-corruption initiatives.
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.
IIEP recently launched a Russian-language version of its book, Corrupt schools, corrupt universities: What can be done?
Authored by Jacques Hallak and Muriel Poisson, the book brings to light the importance of combatting corruption in education as well as key tools to detect corruption and tackle malpractices.
The Council for Higher Education Accreditation/International Quality Group (CHEA/CIQG) and the International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP) of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) hosted a two-day expert meeting to address quality assurance, accreditation and the role they play in combatting academic corruption.
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.
