Sweeney, Gareth; Despota, Krina; Lindner; SamiraTransparency International2013

Transparency International's 2013 Global Corruption Report focuses on corruption in education, specifically on the effects felt heavily by the world's poor and disadvantaged. In addition to providing an overview of global trends in this sector, this report includes a number of country-specific examples at the schooling and higher education levels. These include, but are not limited to, “ghost schools” in Pakistan, the misappropriation of funds in Kenya, fake diplomas in Niger, enrollment bribes in Vietnam, teacher absenteeism in Cameroon, nepotism in Nepal, tutoring as a substitute for effective teaching, and sexual exploitation. The report concludes with a number of articles that recommend different tools to harness education as a tool to combat corruption.
