8th Transparency International School on Integrity (TISI) 2017 Vilnius

  • Conference Call
  • Trans­parency Inter­na­tional School on Integrity (TISI) is an annual state-​of-​the-​art anti-​corruption and account­abil­ity train­ing for future lead­ers. The upcom­ing TISI 2017 will take place dur­ing 1016 July, 2017 in Vil­nius, Lithua­nia. TISI 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.

    Fol­low­ing a rig­or­ous selec­tion process, selected stu­dents spend 7 highly inten­sive days learn­ing from lead­ing anti-​corruption and account­abil­ity pro­fes­sion­als. TISI seeks to cre­ate a peer-​to-​peer learn­ing and integrity-​building envi­ron­ment that links the­ory with prac­tice and helps young lead­ers to acquire bet­ter skills in bring­ing the anti-​corruption mes­sage across.

    School lec­tures, sem­i­nars, train­ing and field trips pro­vide TISI par­tic­i­pants with a unique blend of inter­na­tional and local know-​how, while also chal­leng­ing stu­dents to approach the sub­ject from out­side the box and offer novel, pre­vi­ously untested solu­tions. Since 2010, TISI has wel­comed more than 700 youth lead­ers from around 90 coun­tries world­wide. See our Alumni net­work here.

    The School is open to senior stu­dents, grad­u­ates and young pro­fes­sion­als under the age of 35. We wel­come indi­vid­u­als from pub­lic, pri­vate, non-​governmental and aca­d­e­mic sec­tors, from all aca­d­e­mic back­grounds. TISI is for senior stu­dents, grad­u­ates and young pro­fes­sion­als eager to learn how to make a stand against cor­rup­tion and to achieve greater trans­parency in their coun­try. The seven-​day for­mat offers a pow­er­ful mix of an inten­sive aca­d­e­mic sched­ule, unconference-​like atmos­phere and con­tin­u­ous peer-​to-​peer inter­ac­tions which all make it into an unfor­get­table one-​week-​long adventure.

    TISI usu­ally hosts an equal share of par­tic­i­pants from pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tors, NGOs and acad­e­mia from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Amer­i­cas. Such diver­sity in back­ground and expe­ri­ence fur­ther strengthen our applied approach to anti-​corruption and trans­parency. There­fore, stu­dents 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.

    Top­ics and Modules

    The School fea­tures three teach­ing mod­ules that cover the pub­lic sec­tor, the pri­vate sec­tor and civic empow­er­ment tools. Each mod­ule deals both with the­ory and prac­tice and includes:

    • Pub­lic sec­tor – grand and petty cor­rup­tion, mea­sur­ing cor­rup­tion, state cap­ture, polit­i­cal party financ­ing, pub­lic pro­cure­ment, etc.
    • Pri­vate sec­tor – inter­na­tional anti-​corruption mech­a­nisms, cor­po­rate report­ing stan­dards and cor­rup­tion in dif­fer­ent indus­try sec­tors, such as the media or sports, etc.
    • 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.

    Lecturers

    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.

    IACC Grants

    The Social Entre­pre­neurs Ini­tia­tive (SEI) pro­vides TI School alumni with an oppor­tu­nity to make a dif­fer­ence by intro­duc­ing trans­parency and anti-​corruption ini­tia­tives in their com­mu­ni­ties. Since 2012 the Inter­na­tional Anti-​Corruption Con­fer­ence (IACC) has been sup­port­ing this TISI scheme to encour­age TISI alumni and empower them to develop new ideas to boost trans­parency, account­abil­ity and fight cor­rup­tion. The com­pe­ti­tion win­ners are awarded mini-​grants between 5005,000 Euros to sup­port the kick-​off and imple­men­ta­tion of their com­mu­nity initiatives.

    One of the TISI ses­sions is ded­i­cated to a brain­storm­ing exer­cise, over­seen by IACC rep­re­sen­ta­tives, to iden­tify the most inno­v­a­tive approaches that could be used to seek greater trans­parency and fight cor­rup­tion. Inter­ested? In this case, you can learn more about our 2012 and 2013 win­ners @ Social Entre­pre­neurs Ini­tia­tive from IACC Young Jour­nal­ists.
