Anti-Corruption Academic Initiative

ACAD is a collaborative academic project which aims to produce a comprehensive anti-corruption academic support tool containing a menu of academic modules, case studies and reference materials that can be used by universities and other academic institutions in their existing academic programmes. In doing so, ACAD seeks to encourage the teaching of anti-corruption issues as part of courses such as law, business, criminology and political science.
ACAD was launched in Boston in May 2011 and is led by an expert group comprising a wide range of academics, governmental experts and officials from international organisations. Northeastern University and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) along with the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the International Bar Association (IBA) are supporting this project.
On this site you will find the current version of the Menu of Topics developed by the group, containing 20 units covering a range of anti-corruption issues. In relation to each topic, the Group have brought together a selection of relevant resources including academic articles, case-studies and reports that can be used by academics and students in the development of their own anti-corruption courses and in support of their ongoing studies.
