Blog, tweet and film the 14th IACC

Are you a journalist or a professional blogger? Are you young – and we actually have a broad definition of young here? Are you working in an Asian country?

Then it would be great to have you join me to form a small team of journalists and bloggers that will cover the 14th International Anti-Corruption Conference in Bangkok, this November, 10-13!

Under the motto “Restoring Trust: Global Action for Transparency” the conference will address the key challenges in fighting corruption, identified as peace and security, transparency and accountability in the natural resources and energy markets, climate governance, an accountable corporate world, and reaching the Millennium Development Goals.

I will be leading this social media team with the objective to open up the conversations during the conference inviting interested people around the world to join the discussions. By blogging about new approaches and ideas presented, tweeting the most relevant thoughts, and video-interviewing the most interesting participants, we want to encourage everyone, who could not be at the conference in persona, to follow the conference and chip in with their thoughts and viewpoints. Hopefully, we will be able to make sure that more people can contribute to the exchange on the most challenging issues in the fight against corruption.


It would be great to meet you in Bangkok!

    Dear all,

    we have received a great number of amazing, talented and very qualified applicants. I wouldn’t have expected that so many people would be interested in joining the 14th IACC!

    Now we will have the hard time of choosing the eight that will be part of the social media team. We will do so this week and announce them on the website and here. For the moment, I simply would like to thank you all for taking the time to apply.
    Warm regards, Georg

    Dear Georg,

    Today’s already Saturday, the end of this week. I wonder whether you’ve made the decision yet… (and me being one of the lucky eight, hahaha)

    I really hope we can meet in Bangkok.

    ooops, I meant today’s Sunday.
    hope the minor typo wouldn’t cut my chance to be in Bangkok…
