Impact stories

Summer Academy 2022

The IACA Sumer Academy provided a platform for a global conversation on anti-corruption issues amongst field experts and practitioners from diverse backgrounds. It made me appreciate that no matter how long one has been working in their field, one can still learn novel approaches to anticorruption strategies. The most captivating part of the conversation revolved around the need for radical change in effective anti-corruption approaches, aiming to create environments where people willingly follow rules, reducing opportunities for corruption.

Summer Academy 2023

Corruption is a multi-dimensional problem that requires a multi-disciplinary approach. The International Anti-Corruption Summer Academy equipped the participants with this approach for effective policy-making against corruption. Thanks to this training, I had the opportunity to learn a lot about the different dimensions and angles of corruption.

Summer Academy 2023

Here I met people from all over the world that work or study in the field of anti-corruption. So, building this rich network of international fellows and likeminded people enriched my work and contributed to the legislative process in my home country. When I saw the opportunity to come to Austria to dedicate one week of my time to be exclusively here, studying anti-corruption and talking to fellows from all over the world, I just did not think twice.
