ETA - ECONOMICS OF TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY
“Knowledge for Development in Transparency”
The objective of the ETA Chair is to deepen understanding and develop teaching programs on a variety of topics related to transparency and accountability
: allocation procedures on public markets, mechanism for committing to transparency on international markets, codes of ethics in private firms and public administration, private supply of public utilities, foreign direct investment in weak states...
Concerning topical international issues, longer term problematics or issues of special interest to our partners, the approach ranges from:
> The publication of scientific articles and working papers.
> The organization of public seminars where confirmed French and foreign scholars present their latest research as well as junior academics.
> The collection of data in the frame of empirical projects.
> A 24 hours course on the Economics of Corruption integrated in the 2nd year of PSE master of Public Policy and Development.
> Monitoring and advising master and doctoral thesis.
> The organisation of one international conference every year at PSE.
> The provision of training courses for public officials and private firm managers.
> The invitation of foreign professors to give mini-courses on specialized topics.
“By collecting well-established experts – theorists and empiricists – into a coherent project, we assert our capacity to generate significant advancements in research and accompany public as well as private decision-making in central issues of governance” - A. Lambert-Mogiliansky, director of the ETA Chair.
The diversity of the activities, the level of scientific ambition of the ETA Chair and its international visibility requires the contribution of private sponsors.
The partners contribute to shaping the agenda of activities of the Chair with their specific experience and their needs. They also have a privileged access to its outputs. To be a partner means asserting one’s engagement for a corporate culture of transparency and accountability that motivates the own personnel and gives a clear signal to potential business partners.
The scientific life of the Economics of Transparency and Accountability Chair offers many high times: roundtables and debates where partners’ representatives and ETA or invited researchers meet to discuss, seminars where frontline research is presented, advanced training courses for partners’ personnel.
The Economics of Transparency and Accountability Chair is directed by Ariane Lambert-Mogiliansky, a well-known researcher in the field of the Economics of Corruption. She relies on a first class team of colleagues from France and abroad :
