DSC 1004Last week IACA alumni gathered at the Academy for a two-day Alumni Reunion, an annual event providing the opportunity for alumni to learn from expert anti-corruption and compliance lecturers and also extend their professional network with other alumni, staff, and participants and students of various IACA programmes.

Alumni from different countries enjoyed sessions featuring the latest insights on hot anti-corruption issues from globally renowned lecturers. Lecturers were Michael Johnston, Distinguished Professor at IACA and Charles A. Dana Professor of Political Science Emeritus at Colgate University and a pioneer in the anti-corruption field, Rebecca B. L. Li, Consultant on anti-corruption and corporate governance and former acting Head of Operations of the Hong Kong Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC), Paul Myers, British investigative journalist, and Tina Søreide, Professor of Law and Economics at NHH Norwegian School of Economics.

Alumni attending the reunion also enjoyed the annual gala dinner with participants of IACA’s Summer Academy and students of its International Master in Anti-Corruption Compliance and Collective Action Programme (IMACC).

IACA’s alumni network comprises anti-corruption and compliance professionals in 155 countries and jurisdictions, and the annual reunion is one way in which alumni can benefit from the rich network. Read more about other benefits for alumni here.
