Opportunity : In-country journalists & researchers needed to help track Global Integrity!
Global Integrity is seeking journalists, researchers, social scientists, attorneys, academics and other experts with a background in governance and corruption issues to begin work on the Global Integrity Report: 2011.
There are different roles for interested contributors. Lead reporters prepare a 1,500 word story about corruption in their country. Lead researchers combine desk research with interviews of key informants to score more than 300 Integrity Indicators assessing their country's anti-corruption mechanisms and institutions. Peer reviewers review the reporter's story and the Integrity Indicators as well as overall country or region highlights.
To learn more about the requirements for working on the Global Integrity Report: 2011, please review the Fact Sheet below.Interested candidates, including those colleagues who have worked with us before, should apply online no later than July 20, 2011 by visitinghttp://apply.globalintegrity.org. Additional information about Global Integrity is available on our website (http://www.globalintegrity.org).
The Report is a compilation of in-depth country assessments prepared by local experts that combines quantitative data gathering with qualitative journalistic reporting to produce a powerful "snapshot" of the strengths and weaknesses of national anti-corruption mechanisms. The data is widely used by development experts and aid donors; reform-minded governments; private sector investors; journalists; and advocates to prioritize governance challenges and promote anti-corruption reform efforts.
