Moscow 4IACA contributed prominently to an international anti-corruption conference organized in Moscow last week by the Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation.

Mr. Martin Kreutner, IACA’s Dean and Executive Secretary, addressed the opening of the VII Eurasian Anti-Corruption Forum and subsequently co-chaired a session on international regulation of conflict of interests and anti-corruption enforcement.

The conference, which took place on 25 April, had the overall theme of “Conflict of Interests: Law and Ethics”. It was chaired by Prof. Talia Y. Khabrieva, Director of the Institute, and attracted regional and international panellists and participants.

During his visit to Moscow, Mr. Kreutner also had separate bilateral meetings with Prof. Khabrieva and with H.E. Mr. Andrey Avetisyan, Ambassador at Large for International Anti-Corruption Cooperation.

IACA signed a memorandum of understanding with the Institute in 2014 that sets the framework for mutual collaboration in the areas of anti-corruption and compliance.

The Institute carries out research into the main branches of national legislation in the Russian Federation, as well as comparative law research on the legislation and law enforcement practices of other countries.
