Transparency International’s Advocacy and Legal Advice Centres (ALACs) aim at citizen empowerment and engagement in the fi ght against corruption. ALACs encourage citizen complaints about specifi c instances of corruption, and support people to follow them up. While the ALACs are fundamentally demand-driven and therefore not focused on corruption in any specifi c sector, they have dealt with a number of cases in the education sector. The experience of the ALACs can provide valuable lessons for promoting anti-corruption in education.
