UNODC Global Integrity Education Project

The project will establish and implement an effective integrity education programme that fosters ethical decision-making in the private sector and empowers employees to serve as “ethics' ambassadors” in companies. The ultimate goal of this project is to foster ethical decision-making in the private sector by equipping young graduates with ethical mindsets and skills at the start of their careers.

The project’s most innovative aspects are:

  • integrity education modules co-created by academics and business practitioners;
  • student-focused teaching methods;
  • graduates who join the private sector as key ethics players.

The project will increase ethical commitment in the private sector by involving business managers in localising education materials for universities and implementing on- the-job ethics courses that fit the work environments of industries vulnerable to corruption (e.g. legal, financial, health and energy sectors). It utilises bottom-up and top-down approaches for the highest impact.

Significantly, the project will establish a link between university education and practical training, ensuring that ethics education is an ongoing process continuing from the formation to the career stage. Impact studies aimed at monitoring, evaluating and learning (MEL) will be carried out periodically to ensure goal attainment.

The three-year project will be implemented in Pakistan, Kenya and Mexico, and will inform a global audience of educators and practitioners connected through UNODC’s worldwide networks.
