The two-day programme focused on transnational cooperation in anti-corruption efforts, policy coordination and monitoring, and the investigation of corruption cases. The lecturers were Andreas Wieselthaler and Verena Wessely from the Austrian Federal Bureau of Anti-Corruption (BAK), Rene Wenk from the Austrian Court of Audit, and Drago Kos, Chair of the OECD Working Group on Bribery and a member of IACA’s frequent visiting faculty. A study visit to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) was also part of the programme.

IACA organized the training for the OSCE Presence in Albania as part of the latter’s project, supported by the Central European Initiative, to strengthen the anti-corruption capacities of Albanian institutions.
