RSA Middle East imageThere are still places left on IACA’S Regional Summer Academy – Middle East which will take place in Kuwait City in early December, and which is co-organised by the Kuwait Anti-Corruption Authority (Nazaha).

This exciting programme gives participants from countries in the Middle East region the opportunity to learn from global and regional experts and sharpen their anti-corruption skills. The interdisciplinary programme brings together leading professors and practitioners, and provides a platform to share experiences and network with peers from across the region, develop durable anti-corruption and compliance strategies, and apply this knowledge to their daily work. The programme will be delivered in English and simultaneous interpretation into Arabic will be provided. Participants will also join IACA's alumni network of professionals in about 150 countries.

This is the third of IACA’s successful Regional Summer Academies, and follows Academies in Argentina (Latin America Region, 2015) and Uganda (Eastern Africa Region, 2016).

The full programme is available here, and topics which will be covered during the six-day programme include contextualization of corruption in today’s environment, good governance, asset tracing and recovery, corruption across countries and cultures, corruption issues in the region, and international legal frameworks on corruption. The Regional Summer Academy – Middle East will also delve into anti-corruption in relation to public procurement, natural resources, and organizational integrity and ethics, as well as roles and responsibilities of anti-corruption agencies and risk management in integrity and compliance.

The programme is designed to provide important insights into corruption issues globally and regionally, and the lecturers – who come from eight countries – are Nadeem Anwer (UAE), Mohammad Buzubar (KWT), Badr El Banna (LBN), Robert Klitgaard (USA), Martin Kreutner (AUT), Yusuf Sidani (LEB), Yolanda Tayler (PAN), Muhyieddeen Shaban Touq (JOR), and Saeed Yassin Mousa (IRQ).
