In 1993, a few individuals decided to take a stance against corruption and created Transparency International. Now the leading global anti–corruption non–governmental organization, present in more than 100 countries, the movement works relentlessly to stir the world’s collective conscience and bring about change.

Frank Vogl, a co–founder of Transparency International, will present the key findings of his new book: “Waging War on Corruption”. Fifteen years ago he came to Iowa to highlight the challenges before the new anti–corruption movement and now he returns with a message of surprising optimism .
