Coalition for Clean Universities report: University performance and integrity

The performance of the public sector is strictly
correlated to the level of integrity. Higher education
makes no exception from the rule. Romania was
ranked 70th in the world, according to the 2008 Corruption
Perception Index (Transparency International), being the most
corrupt country of the EU new member states.
While corruption at the administrative and political level have
received a lot of attention from the European Commission and
the media, corruption in education is a subject less discussed,
even though in polls, citizens express their dissatisfaction with
this aspect.
