The International Centre for Collective Action (ICCA) was founded by the Basel Institute on Governance

Collective Action in an anti-corruption context engages business, government and civil society to work

Partnering against Corruption Initiative; global or national industry specific initiatives in the transport &

energy, the defence, the arts trade and the financial sectors, as well as national cross-sectoral

initiatives such as the High Level Reporting Mechanisms in Columbia, Panama and Ukraine.
