IIEP 2007 Summer School
Paris, 6–15 June 2007

Transparency, accountability and
anti-corruption measures in education

Course objectives

The objectives of the 2007 summer school will be:

  • to develop awareness of the magnitude in education;
  • to train participants in the design and implementation of various diagnostic tools aimed at assessing distorted practices in the use of education resources;
  • to train participants on how to design and implement strategies to improve transparency and accountability in education.


The agenda will include three main components:

  • overview of the issue of corruption in education;
  • methodologies to diagnose and assess corruption, in particular public expenditure tracking surveys (PETS),
  • quantitative service delivery surveys(QSDS), report card surveys and audit methods;
  • and policies and strategies for improving transparency and accountability in selected domains, such as financing, procurement, teacher management, private tutoring, and academic fraud.

Learning approach

The course will be taught in English. Extensive use will be made of the materials produced under the IIEP research programme on “Ethics and corruption in education”, in addition to materials and publications from the World Bank, OSI, TI and U4. Modes of operation will include lectures and practical exercises. Videoconferences will also be organised from the World Bank offi ce in Paris.


Target audience

The participants (maximum 30) will be primarily chosen from among high-level managers and administrators from Ministries of Education and Finance in developing countries worldwide. They will also include representatives of the civil society and donor agencies.


Faculty will consist of staff of the IIEP, the WBI, the OSI, TI and the U4 as well as a selected number of international consultants with considerable experience across several continents.

  • A CD-ROM including useful references on the issue of ethics and corruption in education.
