The International Anti-Corruption Academy, headquartered outside Vienna, Austria, is offering a four-week online course on Business, Human Rights, and Anti-Corruption.
The course will explore the intersection of anti-bribery compliance and human rights due diligence. It will first cover the basics of international anti-bribery compliance at the level of both law and practice.

The course is structured as follows:
Week 1: The emergence of anti-corruption compliance
Week 2: The link between corruption and human rights and the Human Rights-Based Approach to corruption
Week 3: Human rights due diligence in the form of the United Nations Guiding Principles and in a variety of national laws
