Members of the Training Committee of the International Association of Anti-Corruption Authorities (IAACA), headed by Mr. Simon Peh, Commissioner of (PRC/SAR) Hong Kong’s Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC), visited campus on 19 October to meet some of the Academy’s master’s students and receive an update on IACA’s current activities.
The committee members met students from the Master in Anti-Corruption Studies (MACS) class of 2017 – 2019, who are presently at IACA for the in-class part of their latest module on Anti-Corruption, Compliance and the Private Sector.
In addition, senior IACA staff shared their experiences in anti-corruption and compliance education with the visiting delegation and provided an overview of the organization’s many current and upcoming activities. These include the second edition of the International Master in Anti-Corruption Compliance and Collective Action (IMACC), a separate degree programme for professionals from the business sector that is planned to start in January 2019.
Established in 2006, the IAACA is an independent, non-political organization composed of institutions responsible for investigating, prosecuting, and preventing corruption around the world. It aims to promote the effective implementation of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) by fostering constructive collaboration among its members.
