Applications are now open for the 2018 Transparency International School on Integrity (TISI). This is an annual state-of-the-art anti-corruption and accountability training for future leaders. The seven-day format offers a powerful mix of an intensive academic schedule, unconference-like atmosphere and continuous peer-to-peer interactions which all make it into an unforgettable one-week-long adventure. The upcoming TISI 2018 will take place during 2-8 July, 2018 in Vilnius, Lithuania.
TISI is for senior students, graduates and young professionals under the age of 35 eager to learn how to make a stand against corruption and to achieve greater transparency in their country. It exposes its participants to the latest developments in the field of anti-corruption and accountability and offers real opportunities to try and implement their ideas in practice.
Following a rigorous selection process, selected students spend 7 highly intensive days learning from leading anti-corruption and accountability professionals. TISI seeks to create a peer-to-peer learning and integrity-building environment that links theory with practice and helps young leaders to acquire better skills in bringing the anti-corruption message across.
School lectures, seminars, training and field trips provide TISI participants with a unique blend of international and local know-how, while also challenging students to approach the subject from outside the box and offer novel, previously untested solutions. Since 2010, TISI has welcomed more than 900 youth leaders from around 110 countries worldwide.
