Are you an expert on defense and security issues? If the answer is yes, we highly recommend that you apply, by September 14, 2011, to become a Peer Reviewer or Country Assessor for Transparency International UK’s (TI-UK) new project assessing anti-corruption mechanisms in the defense sector in 30 countries. The resultant global index will measure levels of integrity and corruption in national defense and security establishments worldwide.
TI-UK is now rolling out their previous pilot project to: Afghanistan, China, Bangladesh, Belarus, Brazil, Burma, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, India, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kuwait, Latvia, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestine, Russia, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Somalia, South Africa, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom and the United States.
Research teams will be asked to provide answers to a detailed questionnaire by drawing on a wide range of sources, including interviews with government officials, interviews with academic experts, publicly available documents, and media sources. The output will be peer reviewed by two fellow experts, and then considered by an Assessment Review panel within TI.
TI is recruiting for suitably qualified and motivated experts to work with them as Country Assessors and Peer Reviewers. Interested candidates can obtain more details and apply online directly at the following site: http://www.ti-defence.org/recruitment/defence-metric.
Transparency International (TI) is the world's leading non-governmental, global, anti-corruption civil society organization, with 90 politically non-partisan chapters. TI-UK’s Defense and Security Programme works with governments, defense companies, multilateral organizations and civil society to prevent corruption in defense, and to build anti-corruption capacity and integrity in defense establishments across the world.
