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,
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
· 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.
