Announcing the theme for the 19th edition of the International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC)

Designing 2030: Truth, Trust & Transparency

The 18th International Anti-Corruption Conference in Copenhagen brought together more than 1,600 people from 130 countries, drawn from civil society, governments, multilateral agencies, youth activists, musicians, filmmakers, journalists and business.

As a global movement we expressed our concern that around the world the foundations of democracy and the rule of law are under threat given the rise of authoritarian and populist regimes. Over more than a decade, despite countless declarations, promises and action plans, countries and institutions have fallen short of delivering on their promises. The time to act is now. The rise of state capture and the free flow of dirty money fuels human and environmental crimes, loss of privacy and civic space and weakens the capacity for international concerted action.

We need to ask and act on the kind of world we want in 2030.

No matter how much progress is made on other fronts, it is our collective work over the next decade that will define the chances for a fair and sustainable future. When the 19th IACC takes place 2 - 5 June 2020 in Seoul, Korea, the conference and festivals will provide a unique opportunity as a global platform to shape the future we want to see in 2030. A future of truth, trust and transparency.
