Impact stories

Inspectorate of Government, Uganda

Summer Academy 2019

I left IACA with a changed mindset and determination to do whatever it takes to excel in the fight against corruption in Uganda. The networks I made with participants from other countries broadened my perception of corruption indicators and inhibitors. The IACA experience is one I shall carry with me throughout my professional life. Asante Sana.

Summer Academy 2021

At the IACA Summer Academy I received hands-on advanced knowledge both from world-renowned experts delivering the training and from the diverse group of colleagues I met. The academy has developed my understanding of current practices in the global fight against corruption and spurred my interest in collective action. My main takeaway from the course is that corruption is caused by systemic failures and is not a simple case of good versus evil. I thank IACA for providing me with this valuable knowledge and insight.

Summer Academy 2022

The IACA Summer Academy was an outstanding learning experience. I found it a very well-designed course with committed professionals behind it and an impressive participation of quality and high-ranking speakers from different institutions and organizations. This enabled us to put the theory into practice with direct feedback from experts in the field and gain deep knowledge in the anti-corruption field. Simply put, a creative, interactive, and productive programme which is the best in the field.
