The TI Summer School consists of three teaching modules covering the public sector, the private sector and civic empowerment. Each module will include theoretical definitions of corruption as it affects different parts of society, and how anti-corruption tools are used in practice.
The public sector module covers abuse of office, nepotism, public procurement and accountability mechanisms for public institutions.
The private sector module focuses on international anti-corruption mechanisms, corporate reporting standards, media accountability, and corruption in different industry sectors.
The civic empowerment module addresses the role of citizens in monitoring the activities of the state and explores ways in which people can become involved in the public decision-making process, in reporting corruption, and in anti-corruption activities.
Students will be introduced to new online mobilisation methods, falling under the “web 2.0″ rubric, used by organisations such as Sunlight Foundation, My Society and will receive a training on media literacy, i.e. how to critically read and work with news.
