Education and Anti-corruption: A Case Study

April 27, 2017

This paper examines the extent to which traditional and religious values against corruption are being introduced to bring anti-corruption awareness into Afghanistan’s education system with a focus on the national primary, secondary and higher education curricula. The paper also enquires whether anti-corruption features in the teachings of the religious institutions. The findings from this research suggest that using Islamic values against corruption in education is an obvious starting point in Afghanistan. However, the teaching methods used by teachers at all levels of education need to be much more innovative, inspiring and engaging than currently in evidence.
