EAEU photoA group of anti-corruption and compliance professionals from Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) Member States is at IACA this week for a tailor-made training.

The three-day programme, which runs from 25 - 27 May and is co-sponsored by the Russian Federation, is designed to build a common knowledge base and strengthen regional capacities to effectively prevent and combat corruption.

Topics include corruption in the EAEU, the shadow economy and corruption, governance and anti-corruption, public procurement and model laws, and public-private partnerships (collective action). The training also includes case studies and a study visit to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) for an overview of international legal instruments against corruption.

The 27 participants come from the public and private sectors and civil society. They will hear from five external lecturers: Vladimir Lafitsky (substitute member of the Venice Commission representing the Russian Federation), Mushtaq Khan (SOAS, University of London), Johannes Schnitzer (Schnitzer Law), Samira Musayeva (UNCITRAL), and Nadejda Komendantova (IIASA). The training also features a half-day session led by Nikos Passas, IACA’s Distinguished Inaugural Professor of Collective Action, Business Ethics and Compliance.

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. The Academy has already delivered several such trainings in 2016, and about a dozen more are scheduled for the coming months.
