Dialogue And Networking

IACA's Dean presented his credentials to the Director-General of United Nations Office in Vienna

In 2020, the Academy has been very active in participating and organizing events in the field of anti-corruptions. At the same time, IACA has continued to increase its network of partners and alumni, as well as engaging in international cooperation activities with a wide range of stakeholders.

Early in the year, the Dean became a member of the High-Level Panel on International Financial Accountability, Transparency and Integrity for Achieving the 2030 Agenda (FACTI Panel). The Panel was conceived to improve the chances of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by making recommendations that both strengthen current efforts to combat illicit financial flows, and close gaps in the international system. In this framework, the Dean has participated in multiple events and discussions, and has also contributed to the drafting of the report and its recommendations. IACA also hosted a FACTI Panel virtual event in November titled "Achieving the 2030 Agenda by strengthening Financial Accountability, Transparency, and Integrity”.

Dean Stelzer also joined the International Gender Champions (IGC), a leadership network of decision-makers who break down gender barriers and make gender equality a reality in their spheres of influence. Under this initiative, he assumed commitments to mainstreaming gender considerations into IACA’s academic programmes and trainings and to establish a Fellowship Programme for women in anti-corruption with the aim of increasing the number of women studying anti-corruption.

IACA participated in the European Forum Alpbach, which consisted of two anti-corruption events: a High-Level Panel on Corruption and Sustainable Development: Joining the Fight against Corruption, and a Panel on Effective Anti-Corruption Whistleblower Protection. The event was a great success with participation from high level panelists and lively interaction from the floor.

In October, IACA hosted a side event at the 10th session of the Conference of Parties of the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC) titled “Reassess the risk of Transnational Financial Crimes During and Post-COVID-19”. The panel analyzed the impact of the pandemic on illicit financial flows and organized crime, identified prevention measures, and discussed how public awareness, education, and capacity building initiatives can help to mitigate the risk of corruption in the post-pandemic world.

IACA took part in several international and regional conferences in 2020. These included, among others, the webinar “Tackling corruption in fisheries: Vulnerabilities, supporting factors and solution approaches”, jointly organized by IACA and the Fisheries Transparency Initiative (FiTI); the Biannual Community Meeting of the World Economic Forum’s Partnering Against Corruption Initiative (PACI), during which the Corruption Transformation Map, developed by IACA, was presented; the New Development Bank International Anti-Corruption Day Seminar; and the Workshop on Clean Covid-19 Response and Economic Reopening by Belt and Road Cooperation Partners, organized by the National Supervision Commission of the People’s Republic of China.
