3 IACA is now welcoming applications for its third annual tailor-made training for anti-corruption and compliance practitioners from Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) Member States, which will take place at the Academy’s Laxenburg/Vienna campus from 24 to 26 September 2018.

Professionals who are citizens of the five EAEU Member States — Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and the Russian Federation — are eligible to apply. The training is co-sponsored by the Russian Federation.

The programme is specifically designed to build a common knowledge base and strengthen regional capacities to combat corruption, and follows previous trainings in 2016 and 2017.

Previous EAEU training lecturers included experts from Austria, Bangladesh, Republic of Korea, the Russian Federation, Slovenia, and the United Kingdom. The faculty for this year will be announced soon.

In addition to having the opportunity to learn from and interact with world-class professors and practitioners, participants will go on a study visit to the Vienna International Centre (United Nations Office in Vienna).

2 updatedThe customized programme combines theory and practice, aiming to strengthen practitioners’ capacities to better understand international and regional best practices, develop effective ethics and integrity mechanisms, and mitigate cross-sectoral risks. Topics will include, among others, international anti-corruption legal measures, the region’s experience in combating corruption, conflict of interest management, public procurement, and public-private partnerships.

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

Tailor-made trainings are IACA’s customized programmes for specific organizations, corporations, or institutions, addressing the unique challenges that each one faces in preventing and fighting corruption. Several such trainings are scheduled for the coming months; learn more about the Academy’s tailor-made training programmes here.
