We are happy to announce that we joined forces with the CEU Department of Public Policy (Vienna), University of Los Andes (Bogota), BRAC University (Dhaka), and SciencesPo (Paris) to create a Global Corruption Observatory, supported by the Open Society University Network.
The Observatory team led by DPP professor Mihaly Fazekas will provide reliable and actionable data, evidence, and skills to enhance students’, civil society activists’ and policy makers’ understanding of anticorruption and improve their hard data skills for effectively pursuing good government. The Observatory will compile large-scale micro-level datasets from around the world on government contracts, national legislation, and subsidies, covering 3 major areas of corruption and state capture. It will build an interactive analytical tool and publish actionable indicators, while also offering tailored training to stakeholders, based on high-quality evidence.
The training courses offered by the team will be open, both online and offline, to OSUN universities but also for a wide range of stakeholders outside of academia.
