Transparency, Ethics, and Anticorruption Measures in Education Seminar

Because of the negative economic and social impact of corruption on Kosovo society, there is a willingness to prevent corruption from becoming rooted in the newly established Kosovo government and in society at large. As education plays an important role in shaping the ethical attitudes and behaviors of citizens, OSI's Education Support Program is sponsoring a seminar on transparency, ethics, and anticorruption measures in education for the representatives of educational institutions, teachers, and NGO representatives.

The purpose of the seminar is to increase transparency and reduce corruption by promoting anticorruption measures in education as the most effective long-term prevention tool. The seminar will help participants find new ways that education can play a crucial role in building a stable democracy where transparency, rule of law, and codes of conducts are respected.

Representatives from the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology in Kosovo; municipality educational directorates; teachers; university professors; and NGO representatives will attend the seminar. Trainers will include Jacques Hallak and Muriel Poisson, authors of the book Corrupt Schools, Corrupt Universities: What Can Be Done.

The aims of the seminar include increasing awareness to fight corruption; acknowledging the important role education plays in preventing corruption; developing a set of tools which can be applied when necessary; and organizing follow-up activities with the participation of various stakeholders.

The seminar will be conducted in English with translation in Albanian.

Participation by invitation only.

The seminar is organized by the Kosova Education Center. For more information, please contact mmula@kec-ks.org.
