A course in strategic implementation

Corruption is widely recognized as a major obstacle to development and legitimate democratic governance. This advanced professional and post-doctoral course met a need for critical and strategic approaches that straddle the exigencies of corruption control and organizational integrity. Corruption control refers here in particular to external control variables (e.g. by the executive or on an institution and profession) and organizational integrity refers in large measure to internal processes of control and value-driven reform. The course explored the myriad challenges of effectively implementing elements of a corruption control and organizational integrity strategy that is both effective and sustainable. This course was aimed at operational line managers, internal control specialists (e.g. investigators, compliance officers, inspectors, etc.) as well as external change agents (e.g. media, NGOs, think tanks, etc.). It was also open to academics developing similar courses at their own universities. The course was developed within the Public Integrity Education Network, a joint initiative between Tiri, the governance-access-learning network, and CPS.
