tina fargeApplications are now open for this summer’s IACA “Best Of” seminar featuring Tina Søreide, Professor of Law and Economics at the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) and a member of IACA’s frequent visiting faculty. It will take place at the Academy’s Laxenburg/Vienna campus from 3 to 4 July.

“Best Of” seminars are aimed at professionals eager to improve the design, management, and sustainability of their anti-corruption efforts. Each one is delivered by a pre-eminent anti-corruption authority who shares the “best of” their work.

Over the two days, participants will discuss current and future anti-corruption trends with Prof. Søreide. Specific topics include why countries with similar integrity systems have different levels of corruption, the effectiveness of debarment in public procurement, the feasibility of preventing corruption through law enforcement and punishment, organizational vs. individual liability, reasons for disparity in anti-corruption strategies between the public and private sector, and the benefits, drawbacks, and regulation of corporate bribery settlements.

Tina Søreide gives master-level courses at the NHH on governance dysfunctions and corruption, and her research is focused on corruption, governance, markets, and development, currently with an emphasis on law enforcement. She has co-authored some works on anti-corruption with Susan Rose-Ackerman (Yale University). Read more about Prof. Søreide’s experience and expertise here.

In 2017, IACA’s “Best Of” seminar featured Drago Kos, Chair of the OECD Working Group on Bribery. Earlier editions were delivered by Johann Graf Lambsdorff (University of Passau), Luis Moreno Ocampo (former Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court), Michael Johnston (IACA and Colgate University), Robert Klitgaard (Claremont Graduate University), Bo Rothstein (Gothenburg University), and Susan Rose-Ackerman.

Participants will subsequently join IACA’s alumni network of anti-corruption and compliance professionals in 155 countries and jurisdictions.

Applications will be considered on a first come, first served basis. Some discounts on the tuition fee are available under IACA’s fee discount scheme, and IACA is offering a package deal for participants wishing to attend the “Best Of” seminar and IACA’s Alumni Reunion, read more here.
