The Sessions will convene the officials, scholars and journalists in-person on four occasions, in January and July of 2022 and 2023, pursuing an agenda that they set in July 2021. Each of the 15 officials will co-author a paper describing ideas and practices that could transform the field. Each paper will be co-authored by two members of the Sessions, with five draft papers discussed at each of the first three in-person meetings. In July 2023, the discussions will return to the full set of ideas and designs, most by then having been tested in practice.
The Blavatnik School of Government and our partners will distribute the finished papers worldwide, and the papers will form the basis of a set of curricular materials on integrity and corruption, available without charge to training institutions everywhere. The papers will be jointly edited by the Session chair, Professor Christopher Stone, and by a post-doctoral research associate selected in early June 2021.
