GAP’s International Program Director Bea Edwards will be presenting in next week’s International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) in Malaysia. GAP is participating to highlight the need for serious anti-corruption efforts globally, and to support those groups in Malaysia who are working under difficult circumstances to fight corruption in their country. We also respect and understand the decision of organizations that choose not to participate in the conference if they determine that is the best course of action for them.
