What is Transparency International School on Integrity?
Transparency International School on Integrity is an annual state-of-the-art anti-corruption and accountability training for future leaders. The School exposes its participants to the latest developments in the field of anti-corruption and accountability and offers real opportunities to try and implement their ideas in practice.
In light of the significant uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the upcoming School will be held in an all-empowering format online on 17-22 August 2020.
Following a rigorous selection process, students will attend interactive online sessions and learn from leading anti-corruption and accountability professionals. Transparency School seeks to create a peer-to-peer learning and integrity-building environment that links theory with practice and helps young leaders to acquire skills to better convey the message of anti-corruption.
The lectures, seminars, and trainings provide the School participants with a unique blend of international and local knowledge, while also challenging students to approach the subject from a new perspective and offer novel, previously untested solutions. Since 2010, Transparency School has welcomed some 1200 youth leaders from more than 120 countries worldwide. Please find more information about our Alumni network here.
In 2019, Transparency International Lithuania received the Amalia anti-corruption award for the impact of the Transparency School.
Amalia Award recognizes and celebrates professional excellence and impact by anti-corruption fighters from within the Transparency International movement. Please find more information here.

Is this School for you?
This one is easy. Transparency School is for senior students, graduates and young professionals under the age of 35 eager to learn how to stand up against corruption and how to achieve greater transparency in their country. Moving the School to a fully online format presents participants with the unique opportunity to spotlight the best of what the online format offers – meaningful collaboration and the ability to reflect and connect with colleagues from around the world.
The virtual Transparency School will offer interactive lectures and seminars, an ‘unconference-like’ atmosphere and opportunities to engage with fellow participants. These include workshops and virtual social and networking activities which provide the space to connect with peers from across the globe.
The School usually hosts an equal share of participants from private and public sectors, NGOs and academia from all over the world. Such diversity in background and experience further strengthens our applied approach to anti-corruption and transparency. Therefore, participants not only learn about the causes of corruption but also spend a large part of their time learning practical ways in which societies can become more transparent and accountable.
Transparency School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, sex, gender identity, religion, political beliefs, marital, familial or parental status, sexual orientation or any other basis.
Transparency School is organized in cooperation with Mykolas Romeris Law School in Vilnius. Its mission is to educate young people to become creative, innovative and productive members of society in all areas, from science to culture and technology. Currently MRU enrolls approximately 9.000 students and employs over 700 academic staff.
