Call for regional experts: Public Integrity Forecast review

The European Research Centre for Anti-Corruption and State-Building (ERCAS) is currently seeking anti-corruption experts with broad regional experience to serve as reviewers and resource persons in the work of forecasting regional governance trends. The overall work is estimated to be a total of a week (maximum) over a period of 12 months.

The consultant can be either a civil society or an academic person who has extensive knowledge and network across the region on the issues of transparency, accountability building and anti-corruption. He or she will become part of a broader network of contributors to our innovative work on transparency and good governance and input the evidence-based good governance work that we carry out in cooperation with the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE).

If you are interested, please send your CV and motivation letter to ferreira@hertie-school.org by November 20.

Do consult our websites againstcorruption.eu and integrity-index.org before applying.

We are looking forward to welcoming you into our good governance family!


In our work, we are always looking for collaboration with committed organisations and motivated individuals on projects that deal with governance reforms, anti-corruption frameworks, and state-building efforts. Please contact us if you want to work with us….
