Committee of experts ETINED (Council of Europe)

Since a couple of years, the Congregation for Catholic Education (Holy See) has entrusted the OIEC to represent it in a committee of governmental experts of the Council of Europe, called ETINED: ethics and integrity in education. This expert committee is important. It works on academic integrity and the fight against cheating and corruption in the educational systems of the Council of Europe member states. The aim is to promote the outlines of a national cross-border policy of academic integrity. The issue of cheating and corruption in education goes far beyond Europe’s borders, and the Congregation must raise awareness of the issue of academic integrity among primary, secondary and academic institutions connected to Catholic education around the world. It is a way of implementing SDG 4 of sustainable development and quality in education in ethical educational thinking.
