About Transparency International School on Integrity
Transparency International School on Integrity (TISI) is an annual state-of-the-art anti-corruption and accountability training for future leaders. 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 900 youth leaders from around 110 countries worldwide.
TISI is for senior students, graduates and young professionals under the age of 35 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.
