Declarations

Previous IACC participants have summarised the conclusions of past conferences in a joint statement at the close of proceedings:

The Declaration of the 12th IACC in Guatemala City in 2006 contained an Action Agenda outlining practical measures to curb corruption.

The Seoul findings of the 11th IACC, in Seoul Korea 2003, stated the participants “strong conviction that there is absolutely no substance in the myth that corruption is a matter of culture. Rather, it offends the beliefs and traditions of us all.”

In Prague in 2001, conference delegates reaffirmed their commitment to building global standards of transparency and accountability not only for governments but also for the private sector, civil society and international institutions. Their reaffirmation to the fight against corruption is outlined in the Prague Agenda.

In Durban in 1999, the determination of the conference participants to continue their work against corruption was expressed in the Durban Commitment.

The IACC in Lima in 1997 culminated in the formulation of an unprecedented international anti-corruption work programme - the Lima Declaration Against Corruption.
