Thank you to all those who attended the 12th International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC), held 15-18 November 2006, in Guatemala City, Guatemala.
With the theme "Towards a Fairer World:
Why is Corruption Still Blocking the Way?" the Conference sought to answer why, after nearly two decades of research, advocacy and reform, corruption remains such a huge problem. Attended by more than 1300 experts from around the globe, the conference featured speakers such as the Secretary General of OAS, José Miguel Insulza, the President of Guatemala, Oscar Berger, the President of Costa Rica and Nobel Prize Winner, Oscar Arias, the President of the IADB, Luis Alberto Moreno and many more.
In producing a large number of outputs, namely declarations, resolutions and reports, the 12th IACC has set the agenda for the global anti-corruption community for many years to come.
We want to thank all of you who have actively contributed to the 12th IACC Conference Programme and Activities and give a special thanks to the Guatemalan people and government for their hospitality.
