Restoring trust: Global action for transparency

Trust in the institutions responsible for a fair and sustainable future has been eroded. In the aftermath of the financial crisis insecurity has flourished and the challenges threatening the livelihood of populations across the world have increased, creating an environment ripe for corruption. Many of the right promises have been made – the task at hand is to ensure that commitments are honoured.

To restore people’s trust and rebuild the credibility of institutions, governments must move beyond expressions of political will to concrete action; the private sector must put a check on bribery and fulfil their obligations as corporate citizens; and civil society must demand accountability. Above all, there is an urgent need for all actors to work together towards a transparent and accountable global governance agenda.

Join leading experts from civil society, the public, and the private sectors, including WRI Program Director Jacob Werksman, for discussions on strategies and recommendations to reset the global governance agenda for a sustainable future.

The conference is jointly hosted by the IACC Council, the National Anti-Corruption Commission of Thailand, Transparency International and its local chapter Transparency Thailand. For more information please visit www.iacconference.org or write to iacc@transparency.org

Together we have the power to dramatically strengthen the global efforts against corruption.
