IACA attended the first BRICS Anti-Corruption Ministerial Meeting

On 13 July 2022, the International Anti-Corruption Academy (IACA) attended the first BRICS Anti-Corruption Ministerial Meeting on “Strengthening Cooperation against Transnational Corruption”. The high-level event was hosted by the National Commission of Supervision of China, as the Chinese Presidency of the BRICS Anti-Corruption Working Group (ACWG) in 2022.

In his intervention, Mr. Thomas Stelzer, Dean and Executive Secretary of IACA, underlined that “The Academy contributes to the development of effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions. It also aims to assist future managers of the international system, including diplomats, civil society leaders, academics, and managers of private sector companies with acquiring the necessary knowledge to safeguard compliance standards and to understand and fight corruption.”

Over the years, IACA has implemented many activities with BRICS countries, including the IACA Summer Academy in Brazil, tailor-made trainings for the Central Vigilance Commission of India, and for anti-corruption and compliance practitioners from Eurasian Economic Union Member States – the latter activity was implemented in cooperation with the Russian Federation. Moreover, IACA also organized a tailor-made training for representatives of anti-corruption law enforcement and financial intelligence units of BRICS countries and professionals from compliance, risk management and procurement departments of the New Development Bank (NDB). The purpose of this latest training was to strengthen and consolidate regional capacities in fighting corruption while focusing on emergency response and economic recovery programmes.

IACA is ready to work with BRICS countries to ensure support to targeted global, regional, and inter-disciplinary research on anti-corruption, compliance, and collective action to facilitate informed decision-making in the public and private sectors. In this context, the Dean invited all BRICS countries to support IACA’s new Global Programme on Measuring Corruption. This programme aims to make corruption measurement more accurate and more actionable.
