The ICRN team


What is the ICRN Forum? And who is it for?

The ICRN Forum aims to bring together international junior researchers from all disciplines (including, but not limited to, psychology, economics, political science, sociology, law, anthropology, history) working in the fields of (anti-)corruption and integrity to present their current research, discuss working papers and initiate collaborative research projects. 

The ICRN Forum is especially aimed at junior researchers (PhD, Post-Docs), but advanced Master students can also apply. We also encourage practitioners working in the field of (anti-)corruption to apply and attend the Forum.

What is the aim of the Forum?

Forming a network of junior researchers working on (anti-)corruption is key to Forum activities. The Forum will additionally host several keynote speeches and a panel debate that will be open to the public.

Where can I find the programme and the links for each session?

If you applied and were accepted you received the program with hyperlinks to the Zoom rooms via email. 

If you just want to know what the Forum is about you can check out the program without Zoom links here 

Are there open sessions that I can attend even if I did not apply?

Yes, there is a Roundtable discussion that features a mix of researchers and practitioners to discuss what academia and journalism can learn from each other.

It features Heather Marquette, Jonathan Cushing, Leslie Holmes and is moderated by Johannes Tonn

If you are interested in joining, please register here.

Is it neccessary for me to sign up for each panel with eventbrite or is the zoom link enough?

Yes, it is necessary to register via the Eventbrite session in order for us to know how many people attended each session. Also, each session has limited spots, so once it is full, you may not be able to attend.

I did not receive the programme, who can I contact?
