Besides six high-level Plenaries, the IACC features between 50-60 thought-provoking workshops related to and inspired by the umbrella Conference theme Time for Justice: Equity, Security, Trust, and the five Agenda Tracks. Want to know what the agenda might look like? Have a look at the workshop agenda from the 16th IACC in Malaysia last year.

Time frame

The call for Workshop Proposals has now closed: the deadline for submitting workshop proposals was the 30th June.

The IACC now begins mapping the information and opportunities that each proposal offers, as well as its relevance to the conference theme and objectives. The IACC spends July reviewing the proposals, and then will inform the workshop coordinators of the status of their submission in late August through to October. The full workshop agenda will be published in October.

Who can submit?

Anyone interested in joining the anti-corruption movement can propose and run a workshop at the IACC. Of all the proposals received, the most thought-provoking and thematically relevant 50–60 will be selected to hold a workshop at the conference. We welcome workshop proposals from any organisation or individual, and encourage collaboration across organisations and regions. Panels with diversity in terms of gender, geography and organisational expertise are preferred.

Goal

Through a series of open and frank debates, the IACC’s goal is to support, empower and engage people from all sectors and countries to stand up against corruption.

Objectives

In seeking to to support, empower and engage people from all sectors and countries to stand up against corruption, the IACC objectives are:

  • To generate new ideas and innovative strategies against corruption, showcasing game changing anti-corruption solutions and the people behind them.
  • To connect people in different sectors and across the world to scale anti-corruption ideas globally.
  • To engage new audiences in the fight against corruption.

Workshop Formats

Each workshop at the 17th IACC will last 120 minutes and should leave time at the end for questions from the audience. The thematic agenda for the 17th IACC workshops is framed in two different formats for you to choose from.

  • Interactive Circle: This is a fishbowl-style, interactive set up. Conversation and debate with the audience is encouraged; lengthy presentations and PowerPoints are discouraged.
  • Panel Debate: This is a traditional panel set up, with a table at the front of the room facing the audience. Fewer presentations and more discussion ideal.

Workshop Proposal FAQ

  • What happens now that the deadline is up?
    • Now that we have received all the submissions, the IACC will begin mapping the information and opportunities that each proposal offers, as well as its relevance to the conference theme and objectives. The IACC spends July reviewing the proposals, and then will inform the workshop coordinators of the status of their submission in late August. The full workshop agenda will be published in September.

  • Can I email you my application?
    • No, we would only accept workshop proposals submitted via our online form (see below).

  • How many applications can one individual submit?
    • You can submit as many applications as you wish, although given the large number of workshop submissions we receive for each conference, it is unlikely that more than one submission from a particular workshop coordinator would be selected for the programme.

  • How many applications can one organization submit?
    • As above, it is unlikely that the same workshop coordinator will have more than one session accepted, but often large organisations will collaborate with multiple other groups or organisations and therefore be represented on several workshop panels by experts in different areas of corruption.

  • Do workshop participants need to find their own sources of funding for flights and accommodation?
    • Yes, workshop participants should fund their own travel and participation at the IACC or seek funding support from other organisations. The IACC can offer a limited Workshop Participation Fund (WPF) which workshop coordinators can apply for if their workshop proposal is accepted. Information about this will be communicated to successful workshop coordinators at a later date along with the guidelines.

  • Do workshop participants have to pay the registration fee?
    • Workshop coordinators, moderators, rapporteurs and experts are required to register and therefore pay the registration fee. Two complimentary fee waivers are granted per accepted workshop. The successful workshop coordinator will receive details about the two fee waivers once the workshop selection process is complete.

  • How much is the registration fee for participation at the IACC?
    • Every person attending will need to be registered for the event. Here are the registration rates for the 17th IACC.
