Report Neither practice nor science have yet found powerful responses to the persisting problems located within the nexus of development and corruption; the topic is hence highly debated in the public and the private sector, the media, civil society, and academia. The International Anti-Corruption Academy in Austria brings together almost 70 participants from 50 countries to discuss current anti-corruption issues with world-leading experts, and to share practical experiences. As a participant with a scientific background, I could benefit from the Summer Academy in a double sense: On the one hand, I had the chance to get insights into valuable know-how from practice and counter-check my own theoretical findings against their applicability, and to hear and discuss about newest developments in anti-corruption research on the other. These past eleven days were incredibly intense and inspiring, and I take home a broad range of new ideas to be integrated into my PhD project.
