National Integrity System Summer School, 11-13 September 2013, Lisbon

There is a tacit consensus among politicians, international organizations and civil society that the fight against the mismanagement of public expenditures and corruption is a key issue in order to strengthen and re-establish the legitimacy and sustainability of European democracies.

Therefore, as part of its awareness raising activities, Transparency and Integrity Civic Association (TIAC Portugal) in partnership with the Centre for Research and Studies in Sociology (CIES-IUL) and the Institute of Social Sciences (ICS-UL) are promoting the second edition of the Summer Course on Transparency and Integrity, which will take place at ISCTE from 11 to 13 September 2013 in Lisbon, Portugal.

The Summer Course on Transparency and Integrity aims to inform and increase awareness on corruption and the mechanisms for monitoring it. This will be achieved using the methodology of the National Integrity System developed by Transparency International through its holistic approach in the fight against corruption.

The first edition was held in 2012 at the Institute of Social Sciences, University of Lisbon, with 39 students from different age groups, disciplines and career paths taking part.

The experts on hand will be composed of well-known academics, consultants and public officials all engaged in the fight against corruption.

- To promote the dissemination of information about the phenomenon of corruption among various target groups;

- To develop an awareness strategy through education and informative campaigns;
