Program Update: Kiev Regional Workshop - February, 2011
The TEN Regional Workshop, held in Kiev on November 3‐5, 2010 marked the beginning of Phase II of the Eastern Europe & Eurasia Social Legacy Program. Representatives from the TEN member NGOs from Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Macedonia renew their commitment to promoting transparency in education. Representatives from Moldovan and Ukrainian NGOs involved in similar activities also participated in the event. The three‐day meeting focused on building capacity for participants, promoting networking, dissemination of ideas, and fine‐tuning of program activities for Phase II of the project.
The Workshop was instrumental in developing a plan for strategic partnerships
with stakeholders by creating a space for the exchange of ideas, skills and knowledge between the TEN partners and to spread the word about the anti‐corruption movement, especially by promoting relationships with Universities.

In recent months, NGOC awarded four anti‐corruption youth‐focused NGOs in Vanadzor with small grants to advance various anticorruption initiatives and raise awareness on issues related to corruption. The grants enabled NGOs to organize and fund a wide array of innovative events that drew hundreds of youth together. Through this targeted approach, the youth were provided with a safe environment to not only discuss and learn about the impact of corruption in education, but also to share ideas about how to reduce corruption.
To maximize the number and type of youth who benefited from these initiatives, NGOs employed differ‐ent approaches to raise awareness about the negative impact of corruption. In some cases, NGOs first administered surveys to assess the extent to which the youth understood anti‐corruption legislation, and then developed informative booklets and posters which were publically displayed. To further equip the youth with up to date information, representatives from various Higher Education Institutions student councils organized conferences, debates and round‐table discussions that focused on the RA Criminal Code and corresponding legal sanctions. One NGO sponsored a live radio broadcast which allowed for a lively exchange of experiences, best practices and concerns. There were also theatrical performances as well as concerts which featured local celebrities who joined efforts to advocate against corruption.

The Transparent Education Network through its partner organization, Youth Educational Forum (YEF) and in partnership with South East European University (SEEU), have developed a Code of Conduct (CoC) for faculty, staff, and students.
A comparative analysis of the code of conduct with other neighboring country universities was carried out by a working group and this greatly benefited the team. YEF hosted various types of interactive activities with all levels of university stakeholders to ensure that everyone’s opinions are heard and incorporated into the CoC document. One of those activities was the panel discussion titled as "Honor Codes ‐ the first step to a more transparent university environment”. YEF organized these kinds of interactive activities to ensure open discussion among the university authorities on the value and importance of developing a transparent and corruption‐free education system. The final CoC draft was created with collaborative feedback from Skopje, Bitola, and Tetova universities and consisted of Academic CoC, Administrative CoC, Student CoC and examination regulations. YEF also organized a round‐table event that provided an open forum for discussing the effective implementation of the CoC after adoption. University authorities are currently reviewing the final version which is a significant step to‐wards will improving transparency in Macedonian Universities.
