OECD’s Integrity Forum has become one of the leading public fora on integrity and anti-corruption worldwide, bringing together relevant policy communities as well as the private sector, civil society organisations and academia. It takes place during the broader context of the OECD Integrity Week.

The 2016 edition of the Integrity Forum, taking place in Paris on 19-20 April 2016, will offer two tracks:

  • The more general Integrity Track, will focus on other pressing integrity issues, such as the refugee crisis, climate change, extractive industries and state-owned enterprises.


The Integrity Forum is OECD’s premium forum on integrity and anti-corruption, bringing together different policy communities as well as the private sector, civil society organisations and academia. The Forum distinguishes itself by several features:

  • Join the debate with different policy communities, private sector, civil society and academia to advance the integrity agenda towards implementation  
  • Benefit from a truly global dialogue on integrity best practices 
  • Contribute to international and  regional exchanges and foster South-South cooperation
  • Benefit from the rich cross-sectoral exchange of evidence, ideas and practices
  • Integrate perspectives from a variety of academic disciplines, such as social sciences, economics and behavioural research into the integrity debate
  • Stimulate the dialogue on integrity among professional groups
  • Break new grounds by addressing  contemporary integrity challenges
  • Mobilise integrity data to advance policy insights
  • Experiment in the laboratory of innovative thinking  


In response to fast-moving insights from integrity research and practice, the Integrity Forum invites pioneers from a variety of backgrounds and academic disciplines to share their latest evidence and findings. Through poster sessions, participants are inspired to join the debate for mobilising integrity data to advance policy insights.

The poster sessions connect academic insights and evidence with policy-making. They highlight a selection of innovative research on integrity, anti-corruption and trade, resulting from a competitive Call for Papers by the OECD. Research covers topics such as Collective Action, Countering Illicit Trade, Proofing Supply Chains against Corruption, Corruption in Infrastructure Projects and the Impact of International Conventions to prevent Corruption.

The invited researchers will present their findings during the Integrity Forum ResearchEdge poster sessions and guided poster tours will be offered by renowned academics.

The full papers can be found here.

Integrity and Trade Track

International trade is a motor of the global economy and represents increasingly large volumes of goods, services, and financial flows. Yet, the economic benefits resulting from trade can suffer from a lack of integrity throughout the international supply chain. This can result in a substantial loss of revenue for governments, and can hamper competition and business activity. It can also entail important health and safety risks for societies. Integrity measures that protect cross-border trade not only produce advantages for the economy in general, but also for private companies, the public sector and society as a whole.

The 2016 edition of the OECD Integrity Forum will put the spotlight on this hidden tariff. It will bring stakeholders to the table to develop a long-term vision for clean trade. The Integrity Forum fosters dialogue for policy actions and cooperative integrity efforts to prevent corruption in customs and to protect supply chains. In addition, new evidence and insights will be shared for countering illicit trade.

High-level speakers will confront the issues of corruption that impact global trade, informal sessions will provide an opportunity to examine solutions in greater depth, authors, academics and students will share their findings during poster presentations, and lunch debates and roundtable discussions will give you the opportunity to share your experience directly with your peers.

Integrity Track

Recent economic, geopolitical and demographic developments have underscored the growing complexities that governments, businesses and citizens face in our increasingly globalised world. The Integrity Forum provides a platform to address the integrity dimensions of these pressing challenges.

Moreover, the Integrity Forum zooms in on new integrity instruments and responds to the growing demand for evidence-based policy recommendations.

The  programme features the following sessions:

    • In the Public Interest: Preventing Corruption in State-owned Enterprises
    • Use of Offsets in Procurement of Defence Material
    • Exploiting Tragedy: Corruption and the Refugee Crisis
    • Corruption along the Extractive Value Chain: Mitigating and Preventing Risks through Incentives
    • Corruption, Climate Change and Illegal Timber Trade
    • Building Capacity for Collective Action 
    • Standards, Certification and Accreditation Instruments for Corporate Integrity
    • Building the Evidence Base: from Integrity Data to Policy Insights
