14th IACC to take place in Bangkok, Thailand, 10-13 November 2010 09/13/09

Berlin, 09 September 2009

The 14th International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) will be held in Bangkok, Thailand from 10 – 13 November 2010 on the theme, “Restoring trust: Global action for transparency”. As the world’s foremost anti-corruption event, the IACC is the international forum for engaging in innovative debates on the corruption challenges of our future.

In the aftermath of the financial crisis insecurity has flourished and the challenges threatening the livelihood of populations across the world have increased, creating an environment ripe for corruption. Many of the right promises have been made – the task at hand is to ensure that commitments are honoured.

To restore people’s trust and rebuild the credibility of institutions, governments must move beyond expressions of political will to concrete action; private sector must put a check on bribery and fulfil their obligations as corporate citizens; and civil society must demand accountability. Above all, there is an urgent need for all actors to work together towards a transparent and accountable global governance agenda.

Over 1,500 participants from over 135 countries are expected at the 14th IACC, drawing together heads of state, academics, civil society, business and government representatives. The conference will serve as a platform to reshape the international agenda by creating collaborative strategies and advocacy on a national and global scale. The IACC is held every two years in a different region of the world and features an impressive line-up of prominent global leaders.

Be part of the solution. Join leading experts at the 14th IACC where the international community will produce strategies and recommendations to reset the global governance agenda for a sustainable future.
