Corruption, Data & the SDGs. Summer School 2022.

The Summer School aims to equip participants with the knowledge and the skills needed to collect, analyse and use governance data to monitor corruption and promote anti-corruption reforms across the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) framework. The Summer School is designed to bring together students from various disciplines with anti-corruption practitioners to foster innovative approaches to curbing corruption in sectors such as health, education, justice, water and sanitation and climate action.

A key element of the course is that the participants are expected to produce a “roadmap” to fight a specific corruption problem, using governance data with linkages to the SDG framework. By developing this road map the participants identify key players who can help them, map out relevant indicators and datasets for assessing and measuring corruption, and come up with an advocacy strategy. The Summer School is offered in cooperation with Transparency International (TI).
