A round-table on anti-corruption education was held
on February 4, at the Center for the Study of Democracy, organized
by Coalition 2000. A number of university professors,
representatives of state institutions and experts attended the
Mr. Antony Todorov, associate professor at the New
Bulgarian University and a Coalition 2000 consultant,
presented the Anti-Corruption Manual, which will be
published shortly. The manual contains twelve topics written by
several authors, covering all areas of corruption practices and
anti-corruption initiatives and instruments as well. The manual is
dedicated for a specialized course to be included in the university
curricula of the New Bulgarian University.
All participants in the discussion supported the
idea of introducing anti-corruption programs at different levels of
the education system in this country, including high schools, where
such topics could be discussed during the “tutor’s hour”.
