About the laboratory
The Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Anti-Corruption Policy (ILAP) was created in 2009 by National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE) in partnership with the Centre for Anti-Corruption Research and Initiatives ‘Transparency International – R’. The laboratory is headed by Elena Panfilova.
The laboratory focuses on three key areas of activity: anti-corruption education; implementation of applied anti-corruption projects; and academic research in regards to efforts for combating corruption. The interdisciplinary character of the laboratory’s work is one of its key features. After eight years engaging in anti-corruption activity, its platform has contributed to the formation of a team of professionals from various fields: lawyers, political scientists, journalists, social scientists, and economists. Furthermore, these efforts are quite useful in carrying out analysis of corruption in all of its manifestations.
ILAP is a platform for the exchange of experience and best practices between professionals, along with personnel training activities, for the purposes of developing and carrying out anti-corruption initiatives. The laboratory currently employs 14 staff members. Moreover, students from various HSE faculties take part in internships at the laboratory.
Current information about the laboratory’s activities, as well as the latest news in anti-corruption developments, is available through our Vkontakte and Facebook groups. You may follow our events and pose questions to speakers via Twitter by using the hashtag #пулап. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to subscribe to our newsletter.
