AMMAN — The second Integrity Summer School has begun in Ajloun where a group of students from across Jordan discuss issues related to human rights, democracy, conflict management and resolution, social accountability and the fight against corruption. 

The school is organised by Rasheed for Integrity and Transparency (Transparency International-Jordan), according to a statement from the organisers.

The seven-day Integrity Summer School aims to promote the active participation of a group of Jordanian youth leaders in developing democratic values and principles.

It also seeks to increase their political participation and social accountability, with the project being funded by the German Federal Foreign Office through the funding programme of the Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations (IFA). 

The summer school is the second among four schools this year and builds on “the success of last year’s project”.

Abeer Mdanat, executive director of Rasheed, said that the success of the previous schools of integrity stems from “the distinguished interaction of the participants with the topics being discussed and the great development in their concepts and ideas”.

Rasheed for Integrity and Transparency (Transparency International-Jordan) was established in 2013 as a not-for-profit civil society organisation by a group of activists working in the field of anti-corruption. 

Rasheed (Transparency International-Jordan) commenced work in Amman at the beginning of April 2014, and represents Transparency International in Jordan.
