14th IACC Bangkok, 10 - 13 November 2010

IACC Theme: Restoring trust: Global action for transparency

IACC Rationale:
With the first decade of the new millennium drawing to a close, transparency now has a place on global, regional and national agendas. It has become fashionable for political candidates to campaign on anti-corruption and good governance platforms. International agreements have been ratified and international firms progressively adopt compliance and oversight programmes. Yet trust in institutions on which our future depends has eroded.

The 14th IACC Declaration sets out the recommendations and findings of the Conference, with a special emphasis on empowering people and connecting people from different countries, regions and sectors in the fight against corruption.
