Our colleagues at Transparency International also organize a number of summer schools and courses all across the world.
The Lisbon National Integrity Summer School
The Lisbon National Integrity Summer School offers an advanced course aimed at understanding corruption and the means to fight it. The course is designed for public officials, business people and private sector employees, civil society activists, journalists, university students and other stakeholders interested in eradicating corruption and promoting transparency. The course covers governance institutions responsible for fighting corruption, the causes and effects of corruption, and undertakes a comparative study of governmental and non-governmental, public and private, domestic and multilateral tools designed to curb corruption and promote transparency worldwide. The course is taught in Portuguese and includes expert seminars, group discussions and research labs. Participants will be expected to draft an integrity work plan that fits their individual needs and professional context.
Anti-corruption Summer School in Russia
Transparency International Russia together with the National Research University – Higher School of Economics have created an interdisciplinary laboratory on anti-corruption policy (LAP HSE), which offers to undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to learn and discuss corruption-related issues. The language of Summer School is Russian.
Transparency International Cambodia organised its first youth camp on “Youth Empowerment for Transparency and Integrity” in January 2013 to engage citizens and young people in creating demand for transparency, greater social accountability and social justice. This camp was aimed at raising awareness about transparency, integrity and the causes and consequences of corruption on the politics and economic development of Cambodia. Youth and potential young leaders from youth organisations, high schools and universities across Cambodia were encouraged to apply to participate in this youth camp. Youth leaders were coached to disseminate what they have learnt from the camp to their peers in their respective provinces.
Mike Manning Youth Democracy Camp in Papua New Guinea
The annual Mike Manning Youth Democracy Camp focuses on instilling a higher level of integrity in society as stated in Papua New Guinea’s constitution. It is organized by Transparency International Papua New Guinea. The concept of the Camp was developed by the Chapter in 2008 as a way of dealing with declining faith in the democratic process and the rule of law due to rampant and unchecked corruption and poor governance of the country. The camp targets and recruits likely future national leaders, putting them through ten days of what is in essence a combined first year curriculum of law, economics, political science and media degrees by way of an intensive set of presentations, skill building sessions and leadership scenario simulations.
Youth Leadership Camp in Vietnam
The Youth Leadership Training Camp was held from 31 October to 3 November 2012 in Hanoi and Hoa Binh Province. The training camp was specially designed for 20 core members of the Youth Box Channel – a youth integrity initiative supported by Transparency International, Towards Transparency and Hoa Sen University. A series of individual coaching, mentoring and online training sessions were held leading up to the training camp to develop Youth Box into a fully autonomous team. Whilst the preceding coaching and online training sessions focused on personal development, the training camp emphasized team-building and practical skills such as effective communication, advocacy planning and campaigning.
