International Anti-Corruption Academy

The International Anti-Corruption Academy (IACA)  is a young international organization based in Laxenburg, Austria. It is the first global institution of its kind, dedicated to overcoming current shortcomings in knowledge and practice in the field of anti-corruption and seeking to empower professionals for the challenges for tomorrow.

The Academy provides a new, holistic approach to anti-corruption education and research, delivers and facilitates anti-corruption training for practitioners from all sectors of society, and provides technical support and assistance to a wide variety of stakeholders. It offers standardized and tailor-made trainings, academic degree programmes, opportunities for dialogue and networking, anti-corruption think-tank and benchmarking activities.

The organization was initiated by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), the Republic of Austria, and other stakeholders. It became an international organization on 8 March 2011. To date, it comprises a constituency of 57 Parties, including three international organizations.

IACA observes geographical and cultural diversity, and seeks broad partnerships with public and private sector institutions, international and non-governmental organizations, as well as civil society. It is an observer to the UN General Assembly and GRECO, holds consultatory status with ECOSOC, and has explicitly been welcomed by an array of international resolutions.

In providing anti-corruption education and research, IACA draws on an unwavering drive towards excellence, a spirit of innovation, and a commitment to rendering itself accessible to individuals from each corner of the globe.
