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.
Through completion of this specialisation, students will have the knowledge and skills to identify corruption and threats to integrity, assess responses, and devise solutions.
- Effectively communicate with stakeholders working in the field of integrity and anti-corruption.
- Engage with key debates around integrity and anti-corruption in order to identify and understand different types of corruption and responses to it and to assess responses to corruption and threats to integrity.
- Understand and respond to contextual factors that can undermine integrity and lead to corruption
- Devise solutions to corruption and threats to integrity.
