“Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching”
ICC’s International Integrity & Anti-corruption Conference 2021
Friday 10 December 2021, 09.00 – 17.00 hrs CET, Peace Palace, The Hague
On Friday 10 December 2021, the day after UN Anti-corruption day, the 6th edition of ICC’s International Integrity & Anti-corruption Conference will be held. Participants from around the globe will join us in an exciting and insightful debate on the year’s central theme:
‘Restoring Trust, Revitalizing Economies’
The current covid-19 crisis, governmental responses, measures taken by the private companies, and growing income inequality are undoubtedly affecting perceptions of trust. The lack of trust in businesses, governments, NGOs, and media contributes to a loss of society’s legitimacy. It also affects the willingness to cooperate, and it is clear that an effective recovery from a global crisis entails a global response; hence trust and cooperation are now needed more than ever.
This conference will debate what will be needed to rise stronger from this crisis. Why is restoring trust so important in the global recovery from this pandemic? What will be countries’ measures to repair trust? Will economic systems indeed be rebuilt by promoting ethical practices and sustainable investments, with people at its center? What needs to done by the private and the public sector to repair trust and rebuild economies?
Executives and experts from both the public and private sector, academia and NGOs, anybody engaged in integrity, anti-corruption, sustainability, and responsible business conduct.
Registration will be open by end September or by early October. For questions, please contact the organizers via firstname.lastname@example.org.
