MACS Students in Washington, DC

Students from IACA’s 2016 – 2018 Master in Anti-Corruption Studies (MACS) class are currently in Washington, DC, USA, for their sixth module, which is being hosted by the World Bank GroupIntegrity Vice Presidency (INT).

The module, on Corruption, Enforcement, and the Public Sector, runs from 15 to 26 January. MACS students from 17 countries will learn from world-class lecturers on topics including anti-corruption in local governance, investigating corruption, combating money-laundering, and asset tracing and recovery.

Pascale Dubois, the World Bank Vice President for Integrity, welcomed the students to the World Bank, and representatives from the World Bank’s Governance Global Practice, INT, and the Sanctions System shared with the students their experience in combating corruption in Bank-funded projects. Ronald MacLean-Abaroa, a member of IACA’s frequent visiting faculty and a former Bolivian minister and mayor of La Paz, discussed his successful anti-corruption reforms in local government. This week’s programme also includes a hands-on course on investigating corruption cases. 

The module continues next week with panel discussions and further sessions as well as a networking reception for the students, lecturers, and Bank representatives.

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. Each module has a two-week in-class phase that takes place approximately every three months. Most of these classes are at IACA’s campus in Laxenburg/Vienna, Austria, with at least one two-week session held at another location worldwide. Brazil, Georgia, and Malaysia have previously hosted MACS modules.

Applications are now open for the next class starting in autumn 2018.
