More on TISI
Since 2010, the School on Integrity has welcomed over 700 students, graduates and young professionals from around 90 countries to its seven-day, intensive programme on making a stand against corruption.
Participants will learn the latest developments in the field of anti-corruption and accountability, led by experts in the field, and will have opportunities to test and put their ideas in practice.
Over the course of the seven day programme, held at the Mykolas Romeris University student campus, participants will have classroom lectures, role playing scenarios, group projects and peer-to-peer interactions.
The goal is to give students the necessary skills to empower them in the fight against corruption in their countries; they also receive six ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits from Mykolas Romeris University.
TISI 2017 will expose its participants to the latest developments in the field of anti-corruption and accountability and offers real opportunities to try to implement their ideas in practice. 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.
