On measuring integrity with Izadora Zubek, French Anti-Corruption Agency

Izadora Zubek, an International Affairs Officer at the AFA gives us her musings on measuring integrity from our 'think-in' on the topic in Vienna, Autumn 2022.

Show notes


The Global Programme for Measuring Corruption (‘GPMC’) recently held a 'think-in' at their HQ in the International Anti-Corruption Academy, in Vienna, to examine how measuring a different concept - integrity - could help change the narrative in the anti-corruption field and lead to a more useful set of indicators.

The GPMC assembled a learned, thoughtful and talkative team of practitioners and academics from a diverse range of disciplines and continents to listen, debate and learn about the topic over four days in Vienna.

In this one-on-one conversation with Izdora Izubke at the 'think-in' she talks about her interest and experience in anti-corruption, ethics and integrity; and how measuring integrity relates to the work of the French Anti-Corruption Agency ('AFA').
