Local Governance BrochureLearn all you need to know about building your own local anti-corruption strategy this summer. Applications for our Anti-Corruption in Local Governance Training, taking place from 13 to 17 July, are now open.

The power of local governance is that small changes directly impact people’s lives, their education, health services, and road infrastructure. This five-day training addresses key integrity issues at the municipal and regional levels, from procurement and licensing fraud to nepotism and the abuse of assets. Participants will actively develop an anti-corruption strategy related to their home situation and contribute to knowledge sharing through discussions, problem solving, and case studies.

The training is delivered by Robert Klitgaard, Professor at Claremont Graduate University, Ronald MacLean-Abaroa, former mayor of La Paz, Bolivia and World Bank expert, and Nikos Passas, Member of IACA’s Master in Anti-Corruption Studies Programme Consortium and Professor at Northeastern University.

Mayors, local politicians, regional government administrators, municipal leaders, experts from ombudsman offices and local anti-corruption organizations, and governance experts from development organizations are encouraged to apply. More information can be found here.

The Anti-Corruption in Local Governance Training can be combined with the Summer Academy (2 - 11 July) or the Best of Luis Moreno Ocampo (8 - 9 July). Please observe the application deadlines for these trainings.
