Fighting Corruption by using Data on the SDGs. Summer School 2024.

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 framework. Students from various disciplines work with anti-corruption practitioners from Transparency International 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 the production of a “roadmap” to fight a specific corruption problem, using governance data with linkages to the SDG framework. The participants identify key players who can help to map out relevant indicators and datasets for assessing and measuring corruption, and come up with an advocacy strategy.
