Integrity and Anti-Corruption Specialisation

With confidence in public, private and civic institutions on the wane, integrity is now, perhaps more than ever, a key component of decision-making, management and leadership. The Integrity and Anti-Corruption specialisation provides students with the theoretical concepts, skills and practical insights for improving governance, public trust and integrity. The stream challenges students to better understand and respond to the political, economic, and social complexities that can undermine integrity and lead to corruption. Students will examine the policies, organisations and institutions that can build and undermine integrity. This includes examining the role of anti-corruption watchdogs, whistle-blowers, the public and private sectors, civil society, bribe takers and makers, and transnational crime groups. By the end of this stream, students will have the knowledge and skills to identify corruption and threats to integrity, assess responses, and devise solutions. With a range of elective subjects, the stream can be tailored to students’ professional field and interests.
