High levels of corruption and the lack of integrity in organisational governance worldwide cause harm and waste on an epic scale. Despite vigorous efforts by some businesses, donors and reformminded governments alike over the past twenty years, increasing knowledge about corruption and its effects has only rarely been mirrored by successful reforms. 
The “Leadership and Management for Integrity” course at the Central European University (CEU) seeks to impart the principles, strategies and applied skills necessary to equip practitioners to effectively diagnose integrity gaps and – most importantly - to implement strategies for addressing them.
The course takes an inter-disciplinary approach to raising integrity standards in public and private institutions and presents one of the few targeted, applied and yet conceptually grounded efforts currently available internationally for developing effective integrity strategies in some of the world’s toughest governance  environments.
This programme at the Central European University was launched in 2005. Eleven editions down the road it has evolved into a leading venue for minds to meet over the many facets of integrity building in Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America.
From July 6 to July 11, 2015, some of the foremost experts and practitioners in the field of integrity and anti-corruption will teach and facilitate discussions to help forge creative and contextuallysensitive solutions to a problem that burdens many societies and poses a major risk to programmes in business, government and civil society.

Structure of the course

The morning plenary sessions cover the basic concepts of Integrity Building, with case presentations and analysis from real-life settings. The remainder of the day is devoted to specialist policy labs that explore practical, collaborative problem-solving for integrity challenges in variety of settings.
The three policy labs on offer are:
  • Training Civil Servants for Integrity: New Insights and Standards
  • Teaching Integrity and Integrity Building and Closing the Loop: Mainstreaming Integrity and Community-Based Integrity Building in Development with Universities and Schools
  • SMEs and Social Enterprises: Disruptive Innovation Through Integrity
