The three-day programme, designed to build a common knowledge base and further strengthen regional capacities to effectively prevent and combat corruption, was co-sponsored by the Russian Federation. It was the second training of its kind for EAEU Member State representatives, following a previous session in May 2016. To read about last year’s training, click here.
Participants came from diverse backgrounds including the public and private sectors, civil society, international organizations, NGOs, and academia. They discussed topics such as international efforts to curb corruption, modern challenges and trends in combating corruption, public-private partnerships, public procurement, conflicts of interest, anti-money laundering, and combating the financing of terrorism. The programme also included a study visit to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).
External lecturers included Alexey Konov (director of the Anti-Corruption Research and Education Center of the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration), Drago Kos (Chair of the OECD Working Group on Bribery), Samira Musayeva (UNCITRAL), and Andrew Pepper-Parsons (Head of Policy, Public Concern at Work). IACA faculty members Han-Kyun Rho and Eduard Ivanov also lectured.
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 delivered several such trainings in 2017, and more are scheduled for the coming months.
