Ethics, Anti-corruption and Integrity Management in the Public Sector

The Integrity SIG at IRSPM focuses on promoting ethics and fighting corruption in public management, aiming to foster a culture of transparency and accountability worldwide

Purpose and objectives:

Our Special Interest Group aspires to be the premier global network for fostering qualifyed debate and scholar-practitioners collaboration in the dynamic field of integrity, ethics, and corruption studies. We are committed to providing doctoral students and young academics, those in the early stages of their academic careers (within three years), with a comprehensive suite of benefits, including:

  • A Hub for Intellectual Exchange and Advancement: We serve as a vibrant forum where scholars can convene, share ideas, and advance the frontiers of knowledge in the domains of ethics, integrity, and corruption. Through rigorous discussions and interdisciplinary collaboration, we aim to push the boundaries of research in these critical areas.
  • Guidance and Support for Doctoral and Research Endeavors: Recognizing the unique challenges that early- career researchers face, we offer invaluable guidance and support to help navigate the complexities of doctoral studies and research projects. Resource-sharing initiatives will empower members in their academic pursuits.
  • Connections and Dialogues with Esteemed Academics: We facilitate meaningful interactions and dialogues between our members and distinguished academics who have made significant contributions to the field. These connections offer valuable insights, foster mentorship relationships, and inspire research excellence.
  • Networking with Practitioner Communities for Data Collection: We recognize the importance of bridging the gap between academia and practice. To this end, we encourage networking and collaboration with practitioner communities. This engagement allows our members to access real-world data sources, enriching their research and contributing to the development of evidence-based solutions.

By providing a supportive environment, fostering academic growth, and promoting connections between academia and practice, we aim to empower our members to make lasting contributions to the field and create positive societal change.
