Call to fight the spread of corruption in HE globally (Opinion).  “[A] report found that, although in general [Accreditation and quality assurance bodies] AQABs have a range of sanctions they can apply to institutions to persuade them to address any evident corruption and malpractice, “most methods adopted for evaluating institutions are unlikely to uncover evidence of corruption”.

Why is Biman marred by a litany of corruption?  The state-owned Biman airline faces a litany of corruption allegations for most related sectors, such as cargo transport, aircraft leasing, and ticket sales. The reported corruption could be a major reason the national carrier was not profitable in the previous fiscal year.
