The Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) International Quality Group (CIQG) has been focusing on the role of quality assurance in combatting academic corruption in higher education, seeking to enhance the capacity of accreditation and quality assurance bodies in addressing this important challenge. CHEA/CIQG, working with the International Institute for Educational Planning of UNESCO, published an Advisory Statement for Effective International Practice in 2016. 

The first Webinar provided an overview of the role of quality assurance and academic corruption. The second Webinar explored the role of quality assurance with a particular focus on plagiarism.
