On December 16th, LCC hosted Sergejus Muravjovas, an anti-corruption expert and leader of Transparency International in Lithuania. Sergejus focuses on anti-corruption initiatives that lead to sustainable and measured change. During the event, Sergejus shared about the work his team does to help governmental and non-governmental institutions become more transparent. The event followed with a Q&A session where students and faculty had a chance to ask questions related to lobbying, corruption, and what the future holds for those countries who are becoming more and more transparent.
“It is much easier to put a spin on things now, as opposed to 10-15 years ago. There is a certain degree of transparency,” - shared Sergejus. “People have a much higher level of transparency since they travel and study abroad. When they come back to their home countries they are more vocal about issues within the country. If you want to make a difference, think in a concrete, measurable and achievable manner.”
