StopCorruptionInternational Conference on Good Governance

The Event

A few months after the success of its very first International Conference tackling the fight against corruption, organized within Sciences Po (Paris Institute of Political Studies) on December 11, 2018, the #StopCorruption association is looking forward to seeing you soon in Rabat for another exceptional event.
Under the High Patronage of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, co-organized with the National Authority for Probity, Prevention and Fight Against Corruption (INPPLC) of Morocco and the International University of Rabat, the theme of this year’s Conference on Good Governance will be:

“Preventing and Fighting Corruption: A Challenge for the Development of the African Continent, A Necessary Response to the Legitimate Expectations of Youth”

By choosing to organize this event on the African continent, in Morocco, the #StopCorruption association wants to reaffirm its international dimension and its unwavering commitment to defend a fair and responsible governance around the world. This also reflects the sincere willingness of the association’s members to promote a more decentralized approach by giving voice to a variety of actors, who intervene at different levels against corruption.
Once again, the association also wishes to place young people at the very heart of the debates: whether in Africa or in the rest of the world, it is up to them to endorse the values of exemplarity and probity.

For two days, the campus of the International University of Rabat will be transformed into a high-level forum where representatives of the main international and regional organizations, the authorities of many States, business leaders and civil society actors will debate during several round tables.

Partnership with Sciences Po

The Paris Institute of Political Studies (Sciences Po), its director Frédéric Mion and the educational community take a stand against corruption beside the non profit-making organization #StopCorruption.
The students of Sciences Po will write a manifesto promoting good governance and ethics and will present it to every stakeholder at the end of the Conference.

Who We Are

Created in April, 2018, the non profit-making organization #StopCorruption aims at raising the awareness of governments and citizens about the values of ethics.

Across the world, corruption scandals explode and citizens’ trust in their institutions is still dampening. If efforts with telling effect have been made — the fight against corruption becoming little by little a priority in the political agendas — too many excesses of power hamper the functioning of the states, question the democratic principles and destabilize the global economy.
That’s why #StopCorruption is committed to build a more transparent world, in which governments, companies, NGOs and citizens will join their forces to fight against corruption.

By prompting education and academic research in order to nurture tomorrow’s leaders, by contributing to draw the outlines of a new ethical ambition, #StopCorruption intends to endorse the principles of good governance around the globe.

The founding members of #StopCorruption :
• Michel Sapin and Michel Hunault, Vice-Chairs ;
• Daniel Lebègue and Gérard Rameix, Members of the Board.

Former President of France François Hollande serves as Honorary Chairman of the association #StopCorruption.
