Interpol International Anti-Corruption Academy - Signing of a Headquarters Agreement

Interpol IIOn 17 July 2007, Interpol and the Austrian government celebrated the conclusion of the agreement establishing the world’s first International Anti-Corruption Academy (IACA) in Laxenburg/Vienna, Austria.

The agreement, signed by Interpol Secretary General Ronald K. Noble and the Austrian Federal Minister of the Interior, Günther Platter, creates the legal basis for the establishment of the Interpol International Anti-Corruption Academy (IACA) in Austria and represents the conclusion, so far, of the successful negotiations between Austria and Interpol. Austria has great experience in hosting major international organizations like, e.g., the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). Interpol expects to strengthen its relationship with UNODC by opening of its IACA. The agreement outlines the immunities and privileges Austria will grant to Interpol, its officials working at the academy and the police officials and others from around the world who will attend classes or lecture at the academy, which is to begin operations in 2008 and open officially in 2009.

The academy will provide high-level academic education and research to police and anti-corruption professionals from around the world in such areas as asset tracing and recovery, money laundering, development aid investigation and oversight, forensic accounting and ethics. The signing of the agreement is another significant step forward toward the establishment of the world’s first IACA. In order to create as much as possible international support for this unique project and to make the upcoming Founders Conference a success Interpol now continues to work on the academic implementation as well as on the involvement of strategic, international partners.
