Two seats available for International Anti-Corruption Conference in Copenhagen


Danida Fellowship Centre has two seats available for members of the Danida Alumni Network at the International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) in Copenhagen 22-24 October 2018.

The Call for Applications is open until 9 July 2018 and applicants will be informed about the outcome of their applications no later than two weeks after the application deadline.

The International Anti-Corruption Conference

The IACC is the world’s premier global forum for bringing together government officials, representatives of civil society organisations, as well as private and public stakeholders to tackle the increasingly sophisticated challenges posed by corruption. Established in 1983, the IACC takes place usually every second year in different regions of the world and hosts from 800 to 2000 participants from over 135 countries worldwide.

The IACC advances the anti-corruption agenda by raising awareness and stimulating debate. It fosters networking and global exchange of experiences that are indispensable for effective advocacy and action, both at global and national level. The conferences also promote international cooperation among governments, civil society organisations, the private and public sector, and citizens in general by providing the opportunity for face-to-face dialogue.

To those selected, DFC offers a seat at the conference, coverage of travel expenses, accommodation costs, and allowances during the stay in Copenhagen.

Who can apply and what is expected?   

To be selected for one of the two seats it is a condition that you:

  4. Can and will use the knowledge gained at the conference to further promote the anti-corruption agenda/work.
  5. Are able to travel to Copenhagen and stay during the dates of the conference.

DFC will select the two Danida Alumni based on these 5 criteria.
