Sixth IACA Summer Academy Draws to a Close

Sixth IACA Summer Academy Draws to a Close

As the 2016 IACA Summer Academy reached its conclusion on Friday, anti-corruption and compliance professionals from around the world reflected on eight days of rich discussion and interaction with peers and world-leading experts.

The participants had arrived in Laxenburg from more than 40 countries and represented the public and private sectors, international organizations, academia, media, and civil society.

Lecturers came from a wide variety of leading institutions, including IACA, the World Bank, Transparency International, Brazil’s Federal Prosecution Service, the Supreme Court of Kenya, SAR Hong Kong’s Independent Commission against Corruption, Partners Foundation for Local Development (Romania), Siemens, Harvard and Colgate universities (United States of America), London Business School, University of Passau (Germany), Flinders University (Australia), and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA).

As in previous years, the interdisciplinary programme blended theory and practice, addressing topical anti-corruption and compliance issues from multiple perspectives: politics, compliance and collective action, integrity and corruption prevention, law, psychology, economics, good governance, and development.

This year’s Summer Academy participants now join the IACA alumni association, a worldwide network of anti-corruption and compliance professionals from 140 countries.

Since it began in 2011, the IACA Summer Academy has empowered 425 professionals from all parts of the globe. The seventh edition of the programme will take place at IACA in July 2017.

Before then comes the IACA Regional Summer Academy - Eastern Africa in Kampala, Uganda, from 3 to 9 September this year. IACA held a successful debut Regional Summer Academy for Latin America in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 2015.
