9th Annual Global Integrity SchoolLeadership and Management for Integrity Course

July 1-6, 2013 Central European University, Budapest, Hungary

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We believe that Integrity offers perhaps the single largest opportunity for improvements in sustainable and equitable development worldwide. The safeguarding of human rights, financial market regulation, national elections, and environmental protection are among the key institutions that are easily subverted by integrity failures. We would like to invite you to ourIntegrity Leadership and Management Course jointly organised by Integrity Action and the Central European University, July 1 – 6, 2013 in Budapest, Hungary.

The course offers plenary sessions and three policy labs:

· Plenary sessions will cover the basic concepts of integrity-building, with case presentations and analyses from real-life settings.

The three policy labs:

· SMEs and Social Enterprises - Doing Business with Integrity in Emerging Markets. This policy lab addresses the challenges and opportunities for SMEs and social enterprises in emerging markets. It develops new insights into business integrity in emerging markets and a framework for implementing integrity innovation as one of the biggest opportunities for market advantage, to gain strategies for collective action and engaging multiple stakeholders to strengthen the integrity performance of business, and to foster an organizational learning culture in your company to promote business integrity

· Integrity Education: Teaching Integrity and Improving the Integrity of Higher Education. This policy lab aims to assist academics from all disciplines, education administrators and trainers in Executive Education to incorporate integrity education into their teaching, and to promote responsible reforms within their institutions to raise the standards of integrity. It will help you to develop curricula, modules and syllabi that use interactive, collaborative and student-centred teaching and learning methods in various media to equip students and executives with the knowledge and skills to recognise integrity challenges and formulate responsible, practical solutions. Building on the experiences of faculty and participants, the exercises and case studies will provide opportunities for mutual learning and peer review regarding complex, on-the-job situations, particularly within the academic and educational management worlds

· Government Records Management and Citizen Access to Information. This policy lab addresses the significance of records as the evidence citizens need to take ownership of and participate more fully in their governments, and to build integrity in citizen state relationships. In particular, it will explore the significance of well-managed records for meaningful approaches to transparency and accountability, including reactive disclosure (Access to Information) and proactive disclosure (Open Data), two of the key means of building increased accountability and transparency. The lab will examine the requirements for ensuring that accurate and reliable government records are created and remain accessible for as long as required, providing participants with knowledge of international good practice standards, infrastructure requirements and tools that can be used to strengthen records management in support of openness.

Past years’ lecturers include Abdul Tejan-Cole (former anti-corruption commissioner of Sierra Leone, OSF Africa Director), Elizabeth Filkin (former UK Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards) ,Hon. Justice Clotilde Nougbode Medegan (former Chief of the High Court of Justice of Benin and member of the UN Commission of the Legal Empowerment of the Poor), George Soros (philanthropist, the founder of Central European University and Open Society Institute), Paul Collier (professor at Oxford University’s Economics Department) and Dr. Vaira Vike-Freiberga (former president of Latvia).
