With cross-border education more than tripling in the last thirty years, the diverse range of opportunities to study abroad (e.g. e-higher education, campuses abroad, franchised courses, etc.) are on the rise, and with them opportunities for 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.
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.
The UNESCO International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP-UNESCO) is redoubling its efforts today in the fight against corruption in education with enhanced tools, resources, and functionalities on its ETICO platform.
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.
