Join the school on 10-16 July, 2017 in Vilnius!
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 10-16 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.
Is this School for you?
This one is easy. 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.
In July 2016, once again we welcomed some 120 future leaders from more than 60 countries for a 7-day event in the beautiful Lithuanian capital Vilnius.
What will you learn?
TISI is organized in cooperation with Mykolas Romeris University in Vilnius. Upon completion of the TISI course, students receive 6 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits, which only stresses the fact that participants come to the school to learn and are required to do additional preparatory reading before the School starts. The course reading material is published in advance and students are encouraged to get in touch with TISI organizers for additional reading recommendations.
The School curriculum is presented through a variety of learning modules such as lectures, seminars, trainings, discussions, field trips, film screenings and social events. The program follows a dynamic schedule which, as the week goes by, gradually moves away from introductory topics to seminars and training aimed to address particular subjects and let participants acquire new skill sets. In short, the goal of the program is to leave all the participants inspired and empowered by creating opportunities to learn in small groups as well as through mentoring hours.
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.
