Ethics and Corruption in Education. Results from the Expert Workshop (Paris, France, November 28-29, 2001). Policy Forum on Education.
Hallak, Jacques; Poisson, Muriel
This book summarizes the findings of a research workshop organized by the International Institute for Educational Planning on ethics and corruption in education. It makes a case for addressing the issue of corruption in education based on the experiences of the various participants of the workshop, representatives of various countries and agencies. The first chapter provides background on the workshops and the issue of corruption in education. It presents reasons for the relevance of corruption in the education sector; a number of definitions of corruption; and a conceptual framework based on a typology of the main areas of planning and management that offer opportunities for corruption in education and that identifies corrupt practices and their impact. The second chapter summarizes the discussions as they took place during the workshop, including a summary of the debates held from the questions raised. The third chapter presents the results of a survey of 33 organizations and agencies particularly active in the fight against corruption. The object of the survey was to collect information about the projects and activities developed by these bodies on the issue of corruption, the approaches they followed, and the lessons they drew.
