Determination, positive energy, and will for change: This is how future Arab leaders attempt to forge a culture based on integrity. Last August, as Tunisian election watchdog organization I Watch and Transparency International launched the Integrity School in Tunis, 50 young Arab changemakers met for a five-day intensive program.
The first initiative in the Middle East and North Africa to fight corruption, the summer school gathered young students from Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt, Palestine, Syria, Yemen, Morocco, and Tunisia for an intensive anti-corruption training course where students were introduced to investigative journalism, social media, and communication tools.
For five days, these future leaders plunged into anti-corruption methods, engaging with Arab and international experts in discussing how to efficiently fight corruption; and at the end of the sessions, they had the chance to present a project idea, with the possibility of receiving financial support from the organizers.
