International Anti-Corruption Academy (IACA) and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) are joining forces once again to organize an international anti-corruption summer school for students and young people from Africa.
The 7-day programme will seek to raise awareness among students and young people of the values and principles of integrity, ethics, and anti-corruption. Summer School is designed for young individuals that want to become ethical agents of change in their environment and will equip them with knowledge on how to identify, resist, and prevent corruption. The programme will offer insights into both theoretical and practical knowledge on what corruption is and what are its harmful impacts on the society.

The training sessions will be delivered by internationally renowned professors or practitioners, sharing their knowledge and experience in the field of anti-corruption, and enriching the classes with practical examples, thus providing a unique insight of the sessions’ topics.
Upon successful completion, participants will receive a Certificate of Completion of the programme from IACA and UNODC.
