The workshop, which runs from 23 May – 3 June, focuses on pertinent public-sector auditing issues such as fraud detection and prevention, corruption measurement and accountability, procurement, and tools for restoring institutional integrity. Structured to foster interaction, the programme combines seminars, case studies, teambuilding activities, and social events.
IACA lecturers Martin Kreutner (Dean and Executive Secretary), Yoojin Choi (Head of the Programmes and Activities Department), and Godwin Oche (Senior Academic Expert) opened the training by providing an overview of the latest global anti-corruption research and trends.
The group is also hearing from prominent lecturers in the field, including Vladimir Lafitsky (substitute member of the Venice Commission representing the Russian Federation), Johannes Schnitzer (Schnitzer Law), Caroline Nicholas (UNCITRAL), Mushtaq Khan (SOAS, University of London), Georg Krakow (Baker & McKenzie), Jo Kremers (Central Audit Service, Ministry of Finance of the Netherlands), Jeroen Maesschalck (Leuven Institute of Criminology), and Mikhail Reider-Gordon (a disputes and investigations specialist).
IACA has organized study excursions for participants to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the Austrian Court of Audit (ACA), and the Austrian Public Prosecutor’s Office for White-Collar Crime and Corruption (WKStA). This is the second tailor-made training delivered by IACA for the BPK following an earlier session in October 2015.
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. For more information, click here.
