Lecture and panel discussion by the BAK during the 7th Assembly of Parties of IACA

The seventh session of the Assembly of Parties of the International Anti-Corruption Academy (IACA) took place at the Vienna International Centre (VIC) from 27 to 28 September 2018. Due to the current budgetary situation of the IACA, discussions by States Parties focused on a "Draft resolution on strengthening IACA Activities”, which was later adopted. Additionally, the "IACA working program 2017-2020” was checked for items already passed, and other items still pending.

On 27 September during the session, the IACA hosted a side event entitled "The impact of corruption on migration”. They invited the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), the Permanent Representative of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to the United Nations (in Vienna), and the Austrian Federal Bureau of Anti-Corruption (BAK) to a panel discussion at this side event.

From the BAK’s side, a representative of BAK Unit 2.1 held a lecture entitled "Possible influence of migration on corruption in Austria”. The Nigerian delegation provided their experience on links between corruption and migration, IOM’s presentation focused on corruption in connection to escape and migration routes across several continents to arrive at target countries, and the scientific representative of IACA spoke about the current state of research in this field.

Lively discussions followed; conclusions were based on the insight that any links between migration and corruption were basically limited to illegal migration, and scientific examination or exploration of illegal migration was currently insufficient.
