Through its programmes, in general, and the MACS, in particular, IACA is becoming a key player in the global efforts against corruption. The MACS curriculum reflects well the understanding that corruption needs a multidisciplinary and complex approach. The programme also strongly encourages knowledge exchange, not only between the trainer and the students, but also between the students themselves. This is particularly valuable because students come from different countries and sectors and I have directly observed how exchanges between them catalyze creative analysis of entrenched problems and they all benefit from exposure to different local settings.
