The module runs from 10 to 21 April and includes discussions of whistle-blower protection, corruption prevention in the non-profit and aid sectors, successful anti-corruption reforms, and the future of the anti-corruption agenda. The MACS students are also taking part in study visits to the Georgian Ministries of Justice and Internal Affairs, Parliament, Public Service Hall, and the Georgian Procurement Agency.
Lecturers for this module are Michael Johnston, Distinguished Professor at IACA, Anna Myers, Director of the Whistleblowing International Network, Malika Ait-Mohamed Parent, former Under-Secretary General of the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and a MACS 2014 – 2016 graduate, and Elena Helmer, Director, IACA’s academic programmes.
The MACS is a two-year programme specifically designed for working professionals. Each module has a two-week in-class phase that takes place approximately every three months. Most of these classes are at IACA’s campus in Laxenburg/Vienna, Austria, with at least one two-week session held at another location worldwide. Brazil and Malaysia have previously hosted MACS modules.
IACA is currently accepting applications for the MACS 2017 – 2019 programme, which will begin in October this year. For more information and to apply, please click here.
