Our friends at the International Anti-Corruption Academy (IACA) in Vienna, Austria are calling for applications for a new program — Legal Incentives for Corporate Integrity Training (LICIT).
Candidates need to apply before December 22, 2013.
‘LICIT aims to increase awareness on the need for a system of incentives,’ the program description says, ‘both within organizations and in their competitive work environment, as well as to foster an atmosphere where businesses are encouraged to come forward and report incidents of corruption.’
The training will focus not only on traditional enforcement practices but also on ‘creation of a system of legal incentives to support private actors’ integrity efforts, and in particular that of self-reporting.’
The intent is to equip individuals and organizations in the private sector to comply with the 10th Principle of the UN Global Compact, which states: ‘Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.’
The three-day program will run from March 24 to 26 next year at the beautiful IACA campus in Laxenburg (Vienna), Austria.
