The sixth group of senior vigilance officials working at the Indian Central Vigilance Commission, public companies and the Ministry of Railways attended a two-week anti-corruption training at IACA Campus in Laxenburg.
A group of 25 officials attended the training from 18 February to 1 March. The programme focused on a range of topics, including the role of leadership in combating corruption, fraud prevention, good governance, anti-money laundering, ethical decision making, and use of new technologies in detecting corruption.
The programme was delivered by as many as 15 internationally renowned experts and academics, and included study visits to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the Austrian Central Prosecutor’s Office for Combating Economic Crimes and Corruption (Zentrale Wirtschafts- und Korruptionsstaatsanwaltschaft).
IACA trainings are designed as a forum for exchanging experiences and sharing ideas, therefore participants used the opportunity to actively discuss various topics with IACA lecturers, as well as among peers.
This latest training session for Indian vigilance officers was a continuation of the existing cooperation between IACA and the CVC, an apex Indian governmental body that addresses governmental corruption. The prior edition of this training took place in May 2018 and the next training is scheduled for June 2019.
Tailor-made trainings are IACA’s customized programmes for specific organizations, corporations, or institutions, addressing the unique challenges that each one faces in preventing and fighting corruption.
