SUMMARY

The purpose of this project was to introduce anti-corruption measures at Tuzla University and Banja Luka University, and in turn, reduce the number of corruption cases.

RESULTS

• The first step was to analyse the perception of corruption in higher education. To this end, an extensive number of students were given questionnaires to fill in. This is one of the most comprehensive researches on corruption in higher education ever conducted. The main findings of the study were presented during two conferences (Tuzla, Banja Luka). The project received positive feedback from the students, who appreciated the participatory approach taken. • 20 interactive educational workshops were held on the adverse effects of corruption in higher education, at Tuzla University and Banja Luka University. A total number of 550 students participated and were trained to rapidly identify corruption and know how to react in case they should face it. • In order to raise awareness about the detrimental effects of corruption in higher education, an information campaign was implemented: 60 radio shows and 20 educational jingles, several TV programs and public events were organised. Student's interest in the matter significantly rose. • The Project helped set up meetings during which measures for the prevention of corruption at universities were developed. Measures were first suggested by students and then discussed by student representatives. Those suggestions were included in a final document and delivered to Universities for adoption.
