UPDATE on 5th Forum


JUNE 16-18, 2021, VIRTUAL

 The Interdisciplinary Corruption Research Network (ICRN) is happy to announce the Fifth edition of the ICRN Forum, which will take place virtually. Thanks to the kind partnership with Global Integrity we are able to have a Forum this summer!

Details about the exact dates as well as all technical details will follow soon.

So far, we can say, that the Forum will be virtual but we will try our best to keep the personal vibe alive.

Also we are delighted that  our First keynote speaker confirmed: Prof. Tina Søreide (Norwegian School of Economics, NHH)


We are glad to announce that we will be hosting the Forum virtually 16-18th of June. Importantly, in the interest of fairness, applicants that were accepted will not need to re-apply. We will send out a link to ask you to confirm participation, just in case your plans have changed.

In case any of you have any outstanding queries, please do not hesitate to email us. We will do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.

Our very best wishes to you all - from a safe social distance of course :) 


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.


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.

We welcome theoretical and empirical contributions that discuss various manifestations of corruption, understandings of integrity as well as important anti-corruption initiatives at the local, national and international contexts. Contributions examining dynamics of corruption, anti-corruption and integrity pertaining to formal and informal institutions, the role of elites, new technologies and international organizations are also welcomed.



We look forward to seeing you  (virtually)! 

The ICRN team
