Mobilising people: connecting agents of change

With the theme, “Mobilising People: Connecting Agents of Change” the 15th edition of the biennial International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) will be held in Brasília, Brazil from 7 - 10 November 2012.

What is the IACC?

Since 1983, the conference series has served as the leading independent global platform for people who want to limit the damaging impact of corruption on governance, the economy, the environment and most importantly on people’s everyday lives, especially the most vulnerable.

The last edition of the conference, held in Bangkok, Thailand in November 2010, brought together more than 1300 people from over 135 countries, including Thailand’s Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva; Sri Mulyani Indrawati, Managing Director of the World Bank; Gareth Evans, President Emeritus of the International Crisis Group; and Salil Shetty, Secretary General of Amnesty International; as well as grassroots campaigners from around the world and young journalists from across Asia, to name a few.

Building a more dynamic movement for transparency

That conference ended with a call for greater emphasis on empowering and mobilising people, and agreed on the need for the anti-corruption movement to adopt a more innovative and interactive approach to begin with.

Connecting people who want to change the rules of the game.

People are exercising new ways to push for greater transparency and accountability and fight for social justice. Yet systemic corruption and impunity remain huge obstacles. Only by mobilising people to work against them in a lasting and meaningful way, will this change.

Be part of the solution

Over 1,500 participants from more than 135 countries are expected at the 15th IACC, from the public and private sectors, the judiciary and law enforcement; activists, academia, media, and civil society.

Join the 15th IACC where the global community will produce strategies and recommendations to reshape the global governance agenda for a fair and sustainable future. Visit for more information.

About the hosts

The IACC series is organised by the IACC Council and Transparency International in partnership with national hosts. Next year’s conference hosts will be the Brazilian Government represented by the Office of the Comptroller General (OCG) and two civil society hosts, AMARRIBO Brazil and Instituto Ethos.

هل سيشعل الفساد المستشري فتيل الخريف العربي؟

خلال الشهرين الماضيين، اجتاحت موجة من الاحتجاجات شوارع مصر والعراق ولبنان. وبلغ عدد المحتجين الذين نزلوا إلى الشوارع في لبنان أكثر من مليون شخص ينددون بالظلم، وكان ذلك غالبا في تحدّ للقمع العنيف الذي تمارسه السلطات. وعلى الرغم من اختلاف المطالب التي نادى بها المحتجون في البلدان الثلاثة، بل تختلف حتى فيما بين الحركات في نفس البلد، إلا أن هذا الغضب العارم قام على قاسم مشترك بينها: الفساد وسوء الإدارة المالية للحكومات.

Right to information: a tool for people power

Globally, approximately 120 countries have right to information laws. In some countries, these laws are top notch, but in others, the laws either don’t exist or need significant improvements. On International Right to Know Day, citizens are speaking out around the world to demand greater accountability from government. But are most people even aware of their right to request information in the first place?
