The biennial International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC)
is the premier anti-corruption advocacy and networking forum in the world. It brings together approximately 2000 people – political leaders, heads of state, officials, anti-corruption activists, development actors and representatives of private sector – to discuss issues, share and inspire ideas, exchange lessons learned and devise a way forward to address corruption, and promote transparency, accountability and integrity. The conference is organized by the IACC Council and Transparency International in collaboration with the government of the host country. The first conference was held in 1983 in Washington DC and subsequent conferences were held every two years under a new theme.
