There were 110 youth leaders, experts and academics from almost 50 countries taking part in the Anti-Corruption School, "In Times of Turmoil: Redesigning the Anti-Corruption Roadmap."

MRU Law School Vice-Dean for International Relations and Studies Prof. Lina Mikalonienė  addressed the youth leaders and experts at the opening of the Summer School.

The Law School Vice-Dean told participants that the complex events of recent years should not allow us to forget the phenomenon of corruption: "Corruption threatens democracy and human rights, undermines public trust in institutions and harms the rule of law, and hinders the achievement of sustainable development goals. Knowing how to fight corruption, the ability to effectively apply anti-corruption tools, and at the same time fight it, is what society needs," she said.

The School of Transparency contributes to deepening and expanding the participants' understanding of the methods and methods of fighting corruption, using the application of anti-corruption tools in practice.
