A symposium on the phenomenon of CORRUPTION
The international symposium IRRESISTIBLE? on 16 – 18 June 2017 in Berlin, intends to fill these gaps. It takes a multi-perspective view of corruption, focusing not only on political and economic aspects, but also on social, cultural, historical, religious, artistic, philosophical, civic and journalism-related dimensions.The symposium introduces the topic and offers the opportunity to engage with experts from corruption research and the fight against corruption. The symposium is also an educational platform and means of exchange for young target groups and multipliers from Eastern partnership countries and Europe.
Building on an exchange between disciplines and actors, IRRESISTIBLE? sensitises a broad range of target groups to the phenomenon of corruption in the countries of the Eastern partnership and Germany. It communicates the phenomenon of corruption through interdisciplinary approaches and formats that are being created in collaboration between different actors. The international symposium will be accompanied by a cultural programme of movies, exhibitions and performances in Ukraine and Moldova, implemented by the cooperation partner Goethe Institute Ukraine. The artistic approaches in public spaces and in different regions link various positions, making them and their respective interconnections and contexts legible to a broad audience. Parts of the cultural approaches will be presented and discussed during the symposium. IRRESISTIBLE? highlights the global dimensions of corruption and points to the multiple interdependencies between a range of actors from the political, economic and cultural sphere and civil society.

We believe in citizenship education as the basis for participation and for a European public in general. Citizenship education facilitates public dialogue and equips people with the knowledge and know-how for participation. Therefore the bpb has unfolded activities to provide information on European issues, foster dialogue on citizenship education issues and mutual understanding on an international level. Weiter...
The bpb disseminates information via a wide variety of media: in printed publications such as books, book-series, and magazines, on DVDs, and in dossiers on various topics of citizenship education. This website provides an overview of the English media currently available from the bpb. Weiter...
