This report describes a year of further commitment and innovation at IACA, as the organization redoubled its efforts to help prevent and fight corruption and fulfil the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
During 2017 IACA reiterated its commitment to the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) and, among others, to the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention, which marked its 20th anniversary. IACA made firm pledges regarding gender equality and female empowerment in the selection and recruitment of its staff, participation in its programmes and trainings, and the awarding of scholarships.
During the reporting period, IACA launched the International Master in Anti-Corruption Compliance and Collective Action (IMACC) degree for business sector professionals, welcomed a group of Research Fellows, and began a fee discount scheme for participants from its Parties and registered alumni.
IACA also introduced a mobile application during the year, making it easier for those interested to “stay tuned” and up to date with the activities of the Academy.
