FAQs

  • Will it be possible to participate in the conference online?

    Throughout its 40-year history, the IACC has been an exciting opportunity for thousands of people all around the world to meet physically and exchange ideas. In 2020, COVID-19 led to a shift in this approach, opening up the conference proceedings to an even wider online audience. The IACC 2022 will continue this tradition by offering sessions online, but the primary focus of the conference will be at the physical venue in Washington, D.C.

    Anyone interested in fighting corruption is welcome to register for the IACC. Approximately 1,500 people typically attend the event.

  • How does the IACC ensure diversity – both among speakers and participants?

    The IACC is committed to inviting speakers from diverse countries and from a variety of fields – including civil society and community activists, policymakers, business leaders and experts. One of the essential purposes of the conference is to bring together such a variety of leaders to review what has worked and make joint commitments to tackle corruption.

    The Transparency International movement is a network of over 100 independent chapters and national contacts around the world. Through this network, invitations are shared globally to ensure anti-corruption champions from around the world are included in the agenda and among the participants. We also partner with civil society and business networks to spread the word about the conference.
