The International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) series is jointly organised by the IACC Council, IACC Programme Committee, Transparency International and its local chapter in the country.
Transparency International – Secretariat
TI acts as Secretariat to the IACC Council and to the Programme Committee of each conference. TI provides advice and assistance to the host of each conference on behalf of the IACC Council. TI is also responsible for preparing and implementing the conference programme; this includes communicating with a wide range of organisations and individuals involved at the forefront of anti-corruption work. TI also collates programme suggestions, and prepares the conference‘s plenary sessions and workshops. Additionally TI helps the host country with marketing issues, advises on logistics and makes efforts to raise funds for the participating delegates.
Transparency International – National Chapter
Transparency International is a global network including more than 90 locally established NGOs know as TI national chapters. Each IACC is jointly hosted and organised by a TI national chapter. The national chapters hires and oversees the work of the Conference Organising Company. The national chapter is responsible for reporting to the host government, Co-chairs the IACC host Committee and participates in the Programme Committee.
The IACC Council oversees the IACC Conference series. It was established in September 1996, with Transparency International as its secretariat. The council's principal goal is to provide advice and assistance to the host of each conference and to ensure that the conference is conducted in accordance with the principles contained in the established guidelines. Along with TI, the Council contributes greatly to the success and follow-up of every IACC. They both provide integral support for the objectives of the conference. The guidelines state that the objectives are "...to stimulate the global exchange of experience and methodology in controlling corruption and foster international cooperation among citizens and institutions from all parts of the world".
