"Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching"

ICC’s International Integrity & Anti-Corruption Conference 2018

Friday 7 December 2018, Peace Palace, The Hague

In a world where “the goal justifies the means” has become an acceptable school of thought for far too many, integrity is not talked about nearly enough. Reason for ICC Netherlands to organize ICC’s International Integrity & Anti-corruption conference, a yearly multi-stakeholder conference bringing together academics, executives and experts from the public and private sector and NGOs to discuss current matters, raise awareness and promote ethical behaviour. This year’s conference will focus on: Integrity and accountability in the private and public sector: taking it to a higher level.
