Resources on fighting corruption through education
Another aspect of the education-corruption nexus is that education could be a powerful tool for preventing corruption. Although this topic is not discussed in Module 9, it is relevant to the broader discussion on how to fight corruption in a sustainable and effective manner, which is the cross-cutting theme of the E4J University Module Series on Anti-Corruption. Lecturers and students who are interested in this issue may wish to consult the following resources:
