Academia against

Corruption in the Americas (ACA)

What do we know about corruption in the Americas? What lessons can we learn from the anti-corruption efforts in various countries? How can we teach the next generation of public servants, businesspeople, and social entrepreneurs to break the cycle of corruption?


The second Academia against Corruption in the Americas (ACA) Conference will be held in Monterrey, Mexico on June 7-8, 2019. As the title suggests, this is a forum for the academic anti-corruption community to share research results and teaching experiences. 

The conference has

three main goals

  • Investigation

    To enrich and promote multidisciplinary research on corruption and anti-corruption in the Americas.

  • Teaching

    To promote the inclusion of courses or sub-topics on corruption in university curricula.

  • Network

    To form a research and teaching network in the Americas, similar to the Anti-Corruption Research Network.

Schedule

The first day of the conference will focus on corruption and anti-corruption research; the second day includes both research and examples of courses on corruption.
