IMG 6398 editedEach year in July the annual Alumni Reunion is held in Laxenburg. This two-day event is tied to the last two days of the annual IACA Summer Academy held at IACA’s campus during the first week of July. The two-day programme for the Reunion provides alumni with an opportunity to network on-site with fellow alumni, benefit from interactive and specifically chosen lecturers for this event, and the possibility to extend their professional network through networking with current Summer Academy participants.

Dates and Lecturers

IACA’s 5th Alumni Reunion will take place on 5 and 6 July 2018. Sharing their latest insights on hot anti-corruption issues will be Michael Johnston, Charles A. Dana Professor of Political Science Emeritus at Colgate University and a pioneer in the anti-corruption field, Paul Myers, British investigative journalist, Tina Søreide, Professor of Law and Economics at NHH Norwegian School of Economics, and Rebecca B. L. Li, Consultant on anti-corruption and corporate governance and former acting Head of Operations of the Hong Kong Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC).

Invitation: Speak at the Reunion

IMG 6383A special highlight of this year’s programme is the opportunity to speak at one of three sessions reserved for alumni only.

All interested alumni should apply to IACA by sending their proposal to alumni@iaca.int by 31 May 2018. IACA will choose the three best topics for the selected alumni to present during the Reunion.
