16 IACC montage

At the 16th International Anti-Corruption Conference in Malaysia last year we announced that the 17th IACC will be held in Panama in 2016. We are now seeking a host country for the 18th IACC to be held in 2018.

The IACC was founded in 1983 and is the premier global anti-corruption forum bringing together civil society, academia, governments, international organisations and the private sector. The Conference welcomes between 1500-2000 participants and features high-level plenary sessions with global leaders, as well as in-depth working sessions to address anti-corruption problems and solutions.
