International Anti-Corruption Academy
International Anti-Corruption Academy
The process of creating an International organization focusing on anti-Corruption education dates back to the year 2005, when an Interpol
-working group started to discuss such endeavor
and was firstly raised publicly in 2006 at an Interpol General Assembly.

IACA is recognized as an institution for post-graduate education by the Austrian ministry of Science, Research and Economy
and is subsequently entitled to offer post-graduate education under the framework of the Bologna process
It started its first Masters program in February 2013; at that time the coursework was run in seven twelve-day blocks, taken over two years.
The Austrian news magazine, News
, reported that IACA posted a budget of €12.98 million for the 2014 financial year and a budget of €13.24 million for 2015; while noting that the actual revenues for 2013 were €2.3 million and expenditures were around €2.1 million.
IACA told the News
that the higher numbers were based on their fund-raising goals.
At the end of 2015 and the beginning of 2016 IACA underwent a turnover in staff.
During IACA's seventh Assembly of Parties in September 2018, Eduardo Vetere, the chairman of IACA's Board of Governors, referred to an external auditor's report which concluded that IACA was in danger of insolvency.
A working group was set up in December 2018 to restructure the income situation and generate membership contributions.
The Austrian government made a contribution of €544,000 in December 2018.
IACA is headed by its dean, who also serves as the executive secretary of the organization. Martin Kreutner served from IACA's creation in March 2011 to the end of January 2019 as IACA's first dean.
The position remained vacant and was taken over by Christiane Pohn-Hufnagel, the organizations Chief of Staff and Head of General Services, in an acting capacity. On March 2, 2020 Thomas Stelzer
took office as IACA's new dean and executive secretary. His initial term is limited to four years and might be extended.
Relationships with member countries
Another international controversy that was discussed within IACA occurred in 2012, when tensions arose as the representative of Syria
stressed that, notwithstanding the election of the Israeli
Mordechai Kremnitzer to IACA's board of governors, his government did not accept Israel's right of existence. The comment was rebuked by the Israeli ambassador in a fashion that was described as breaching the diplomatic protocol.
