Academic Integrity / letter 82 – October 8, 2020

Dear colleagues, dear students, dear readers,

Academic integrity cannot be decreed. It is lived, shared and told.

Wherever formal guidelines for academic ethics and deontology flourish, failure is the order of the day. And when whistleblowers try to shake up the system, they learn the hard way that the system does not change under the pressure of individual initiatives.

Only democratic debate makes sense to deploy „Integrity Sciences” in our academic field; this is the path chosen by IRAFPA.

You can still – there are ten places left – come to our colloquium on October 30 and 31, 2020 in Coimbra. We have of course planned the videoconference: Here is the link to participate live in all the sessions online (20 EUR).

• The general program

• Details of the 7 thematic sessions, workshops and the Round Table

Upstream: please contribute, you or your PhD students, to our democratic debate by proposing questions or testimonials to the speakers using the links below. They will be debated collectively. 

• Session 1 : The respective powers of the legal and academic orders

• Contributing to the debate: How can the system evolve when there is so little consultation between the legal and academic systems ?
