ETINED - Council of Europe Platform on Ethics, Transparency and Integrity in Education - Volume 5 - South-East European Project on Policies for Academic Integrity (2018)
The fifth volume of the ETINED Series, this study focuses on academic integrity in higher education in six countries of South-Eastern Europe: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia and “the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”.
Through on-the-spot interviews with teachers and students, questionnaires, surveys and integrity assessment, it gives an overview of policies and practices used in several institutions in the region. The results provide recommendations, examples of good practice and guidelines for policy makers and education professionals, with a specific focus on plagiarism and cheating in examinations.
This work is published as part of the Council of Europe ETINED platform, which aims to foster the exchange of information and promote best practices on ethics, transparency and integrity in education. ETINED defends the idea that quality education can only be achieved, and corruption effectively curbed, if all relevant sectors of society commit fully to fundamental ethical principles
for public and professional life.
