Held for the fourth time in 2008, this intensive advanced course addresses critically the challenges of integrity reform and strategic corruption control. Drawing on interdisciplinary academic perspectives and lessons learned from practice, this course represents one of the few targeted, applied and yet conceptually grounded efforts currently available internationally for the analysis of corruption and anti-corruption. Topics covered include cross-cutting issues such as definitions, measurements and research methodology, and also distinct areas such as access to information, fiscal transparency, and risk assessment and management.

This SUN course will include intensive Policy Labs devoted to the in-depth analysis of some of these issues that will allow for further specialization and expert discussion in a small group format.

The Policy Labs on offer are:

  • Applied Legal Skills for Integrity Reform and Anti-Corruption
  • Fiscal Transparency and Corruption Risks (in partnership with the Local Government and Service Reform Initiative, OSI)
  • Governance of Natural Resource Revenues
  • Integrity in Post-war Reconstruction (in partnership with the Network for Integrity in Reconstruction)
