IACA Regional Summer Academy is a series of programmes modelled on IACA’s successful annual Summer Academy. Each edition caters to a different part of the world and is designed to meet the regional needs of anti-corruption and compliance professionals.

The first Regional Summer Academy was for Latin America in November 2015, and the second took place in Eastern Africa in September 2016.



IACA Regional Summer Academy is an interdisciplinary programme that promotes a deeper understanding of corruption, prepares participants to better assess challenges and best practices, and offers frameworks for durable anti-corruption and compliance strategies.

Internationally renowned professors and practitioners combine theory with real-world case studies, providing fresh insights into regional issues.
