The sixth edition of the ICRN - Interdisciplinary Corruption Research Network Forum will take place on June 16-18, 2022 at the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the University of Bologna (Palazzo Hercolani, Strada Maggiore 45, Bologna).

The event is hosted by the ERC-funded research project BIT-ACT (Bottom-Up Initiatives and Anti-Corruption Technologies) and is also supported by the CMI/U4.

The ICRN Forum aims to bring together international early career researchers from all disciplines (including, but not limited to, anthropology, economics, history, law, political science, psychology, sociology) working on the topic of (anti-)corruption, open government and integrity to present their current research, discuss working papers and initiate collaborative research projects. Forming a thematic network of early career researchers is key to the Forum activities.

The keynote speech and the roundtable will be live-streamed for those who cannot be in Bologna.
