Hazel Feigenblatt is Media Projects Director for Global Integrity.
It’s that time of the year again: Global Integrity is seeking journalists, researchers, social scientists, attorneys, academics, and other experts with a background in governance and corruption issues to contribute to its Global Integrity Report: 2011.
The Report is a compilation of in-depth country assessments prepared by local experts that combines quantitative data gathering with qualitative journalistic reporting to produce a powerful ‘snapshot’ of the strengths and weaknesses of national anti-corruption mechanisms. The data is widely used by development experts and aid donors; reform-minded governments; private sector investors; journalists; and advocates to prioritize governance challenges and promote anti-corruption reform efforts.
There are different roles for interested contributors, all of whom will be compensated. Lead reporters prepare a 1,500 word story about corruption in their country. Lead researchers combine desk research with interviews of key informants to score more than 300 Integrity Indicators assessing their country’s anti-corruption mechanisms and institutions. Peer reviewers review the reporter’s story and the Integrity Indicators as well as overall country or region highlights.
Countries the Report covers this year are Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia, Brazil, China, Colombia, Gambia, Georgia, Germany, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Kenya, Kosovo, Lebanon, Liberia, Macedonia, Malawi, Mexico, Mongolia, Nepal, Nicaragua, Norway, Rwanda, Serbia, Sierra Leone, South Korea, Tajikistan, Trinidad, Uganda, Ukraine, United States, Venezuela, Vietnam, Zimbabwe.
