MACS 2015 - 2017 Class on Campus

MACS 2015 - 2017 Class on Campus

Students from the 2015-2017 Master in Anti-Corruption Studies (MACS) programme are back on campus at IACA from 25 July to 5 August for the in-class part of Module IV, “Anti-Corruption, Law, and International Initiatives”. They come from a total of 17 countries, including Afghanistan, China, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Australia, Denmark, and Sierra Leone to name a few.

Professors Nikos Passas (IACA) and Andrew Spalding (University of Richmond Law School, USA, and a member of IACA’s frequent visiting faculty) are leading the module, which focuses primarily on anti-corruption conventions, national anti-bribery laws with extra-territorial reach (such as the U.S. FCPA and the U.K. Bribery Act), as well as the national anti-corruption laws of China, Germany, and Brazil, among several other countries. Kathleen Hamann, a former U.S. Department of Justice prosecutor, also shared her perspective as a practitioner with almost two decades of experience in FCPA enforcement.

The students had the opportunity to visit the Vienna International Centre for meetings at the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). Another highlight of the module was a football game between the MACS students and IACA staff. The final score was 4:4.

The MACS is a two-year programme consisting of seven modules and a master thesis, and is specifically designed for working professionals. The application season for the 2017 – 2019 programme will start in September. For more information and to apply, please click here.
