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

ICC’s International Integrity & Anti-Corruption Conference | Closing Conference Week of Integrity


ICC’s International Integrity and Anti-Corruption Conference is a yearly multi-stakeholder conference, an initiative of ICC Netherlands. The conference brings together academics, executives and experts from the public and private sector and NGOs to discuss current matters, raise awareness and promote ethical behaviour.

In 2017 ‘The Integrity Advantage’ and ‘Collective Action’ were at the centre of the conference, emphasizing on concrete action, the importance of (public-private) cooperation and the ‘business case’ of integrity. For an impression of the conference, watch the video below.
