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.

Thank you for a great year in 2015 – we achieved a lot in the fight against corruption.
In September we welcomed over 1,200 people to Malaysia to share knowledge and find solutions to help end impunity for corruption.
We had globally important Plenary Speakers, and world class experts who joined us for five plenary sessions and 37 workshops.
People. Integrity. Action
We supported people who wanted to fight corruption through the Social Entrepreneurs Initiative (IACC SEIs) and the Young Journalist Initiative (IACC YJs).We gave seed grants to seven new SEI grentees form the MENA region and globally, and two from the previous year.
We also brought 15 new YJs and nine old to the IACC in Malaysia where they reported on the conference.

We are delighted to announce that in exactly one year the 17th International Anti-Corruption Conference will begin! The 17th IACC will take place from the 1st-4th December 2016 in Panama City, Panama.
It will be hosted by the Panamanian Government represented by the Autoridad Nacional de Transparencia y Acceso a la Informacion (the Panamanian National Authority of Transparency and Access to Information) and organised by the IACC Council and Transparency International, with the participation of the Fundación para el Desarrollo de la Libertad Ciudadana (Transparency International Panama).

At the Closing Ceremony of the 16th IACC, after the reading of the Putrajaya Declaration by two young journalists, we were able to announce the commitment of a number of governments, including Germany, Norway, the Republic of Korea, Switzerland, the UK, and the USA, to end impunity. This is a landmark commitment from some of the world’s most powerful governments. We will be watching their progress closely between now and the 17th IACC in Panama next year.
Below are the general commitments that these six governments have made. Some, like the US government, have already added specific goals to each commitment. For example, when it comes to asset recovery, the “FBI will formally launch Asset Recovery Teams at IACC. The goal of these teams will be to investigate allegations of international corruption, particularly as they relate to bribery and theft of foreign government funds.”
