The FCDO-funded Global Integrity Anti Corruption Evidence Programme supports research teams in not only creating actionable evidence, but deepening engagement with practitioners. Our research teams have tried many different ways to communicate research more effectively with practitioners. Cities of Integrity is a project at the African Centre for Cities (ACC), University of Cape Town. The ACC is an interdisciplinary research and teaching programme focused on quality scholarship regarding the dynamics of unsustainable urbanisation processes in Africa, with an eye on identifying systemic responses.
Over the course of our programme they have developed a series of animated videos illustrating the specific issues of corruption in urban planning and its consequences for cities and their publics. These animations have been used in their workshops, social media, and direct engagement with particular groups such as early career planners.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the animators, the research team, and a representative from the Zambian Institute of Planners. We will discuss the advantages and limitations of using animated film in workshops and communications around integrity-strengthening as a response to corruption in planning.
Join us for the official premiere of their three-part series of animated shorts.
