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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
