The third module of the Master in Anti-Corruption Studies (MACS) programme started last week, as participants returned to the IACA campus for an action-packed ten days on legal and other aspects of countering corruption and the related international initiatives.
The in-class sessions started on 29 April and will continue until 10 May 2019. These sessions cover topics related to the international anti-corruption conventions, the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act, and other national anti-corruption laws. In addition, students have the opportunity to learn more about the role of media in anti-corruption. During this module lectures were/will be delivered and classroom discussions conducted by Prof. Maesschalck (Belgium), Prof. Hatchard (UK), and Prof. Spalding (USA). The module also includes training in research methods and a study visit to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in Vienna.
The MACS is a two-year, in-career programme consisting of seven modules and a master’s thesis and is specifically designed for working professionals. Applications are now open for the next class starting in autumn 2019. Read more about the MACS here.
