The 20th International Anti-Corruption Conference to be held virtually in 2022, preceded by In Focus sessions

The International Anti-Corruption Conference Council and Transparency International are pleased to announce that the 20th edition of the International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) will take place in the second half of 2022.

Following the success of the virtual 19th IACC, where more than 10,000 people from over 180 countries joined world leaders to discuss strategies for overcoming the global challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the IACC Council and Transparency International are preparing for the 20th edition of the IACC series. The next IACC is expected to be held virtually in the second half of 2022.

Huguette Labelle, Chair of the IACC Council, said: “Each IACC brings a renewed commitment from all parts of our society and new strategies for fighting corruption as a truly global community. In times when corruption has become increasingly transnational and networked, this cannot be more important. We are excited to reconvene with a stronger, bigger network in the second half of 2022.”

Established in 1983, the IACC series is the world’s biggest independent forum bringing together governments, civil society, private sector and all those dedicated to fighting corruption. Besides the biannual conference, the IACC series also includes initiatives such as Journalists For Transparency, Anti-Corruption Music, Films for Transparency and the IACC Monitor.

Starting from September 2021, the series will also host the IACC In Focus. During these online gatherings, we will take a timely and in-depth look at some of the world’s most pressing challenges and debate solutions to overcoming them. The IACC In Focus will serve as a catalyst for ideas, which will help shape the agenda of our upcoming biannual global conference.

“Last year, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the 19th IACC to go virtual, but this helped make the world’s biggest anti-corruption forum even bigger and more inclusive,” said Daniel Eriksson, Chief Executive Officer of Transparency International Secretariat. “In our quest to continuously innovate, the virtual 20th IACC and the IACC In Focus sessions promise to expand the anti-corruption community and to bring more people along on our collective journey for greater justice.”
