IIEP brings its expertise to the 16th IACC

Together with heads of state, international organizations, civil society and the private sector, IIEP will take part in the 16th International Anti-Corruption Conference from 2-4 September in Malaysia.
Held every two years, this year’s theme is “Ending Impunity: People. Integrity. Action”.
As a key player in the fight against corruption in education, IIEP will take part in the debate Engaging Tomorrow’s Professionals in Leading Anti-Corruption Initiatives. Education provides a unique opportunity for societies to resist against corruption through its best ambassadors: tomorrow’s generation of leaders and professionals.
While education can be a weapon against corruption, it is also vital that it is free from it. Moderated by Muriel Poisson, IIEP’s head of Research and Development, the panel will discuss how the global community can  increase integrity across higher education worldwide through a range of simple, but effective measures. By galvanizing an array of stakeholders, efforts can also help students embrace values such as transparency and accountability and equip them with the tools and skills to continue the fight against impunity and corruption.  Please visit the IACC website for more information.
