Youth leaders gather to Transparency International School on Integrity in Vilnius, Lithuania

Issued by Transparency International Lithuania

This year the third Transparency International School on Integrity will welcome almost one hundred students from thirty-six countries.

The goal of the TI School is to engage youth leaders from across the world in the discussion on transparency and accountabilty, offer them practical solutions to good governance and venues for active engagement in anti-corruption work in their countries. This year the students will be greeted by such lecturers as the former head of the World Bank Institute Daniel Kaufmann, the legendary prosecutor from Peru Jose Ugaz and the director of TI Russia Elena Panfilova among many other leading anti-corruption experts. The students will be also welcomed by Her Excellency President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaitė.

„We hope that the TI School inspires young people to seek change in their everyday life. Many of them strongly support transparency and accountability and are interested in anticorruption work but often do not believe they can make a difference and do not know how. We want to make sure they know they can do a lot and understand how they can do it better,“ said Sergejus Muravjovas, Executive Director of Transparency International Lithuania and one of the organizers of the event.

During the six days of the School the students will address the reasons for corruption in public and private sectors,  nepotism and state capture, the interplay between corruption and organized crime, corruption in the defense sector and the role of ICT transparency tools in achieving greater accountability. The School lectures are conducted in English. The students will receive 4 ECTS for successful completion of the course.

The Transparency International Summer School on Integrity is organized in partnership with Mykolas Romeris University in Vilnius. It is supported by the Black Sear Trust for Regional Cooperation, Embassies of Finland and the United States in Lithuania, the Nordic Council of Ministers Bureau in Lithuania and Transparency International .
