We seek to lead by example and offer top-notch quality. To do that, over the past seven years we have invited nearly half-a-hundred outstanding experts to teach at TI School in Vilnius. School lecturers are anti-corruption and accountability leaders that come from public, private, NGO and academic sectors and offer the students unique perspectives on how to address corruption and promote transparency.

While the team of lecturers changes slightly every year, over time TI School has welcomed speakers from the World Bank Institute, OECD, OSCE, Global Witness, Integrity Action, MySociety, Sunlight Foundation, Global Advice, U4, various Transparency International chapters and many others.

While we are currently updating the list of lecturers for TI School on Integrity 2017, please take a look at how it all looked throughout the previous years.
