International Centre for Collective Action (ICCA)
The International Centre for Collective Action (ICCA) was founded by the Basel Institute on Governance
in 2012 with a view to further strengthening the Institute’s on-going commitment to supporting
businesses’ fight against corruption through Collective Action. In June 2013 the B20 (the B20 refers to
businesses that are engaged in interacting with government representatives of the G20 countries),
awarded the Basel Institute the task of creating and managing the Anti-Corruption Collective Action
Hub, in partnership with the UN Global Compact (UNGC). The Hub’s mission is to identify and analyse
Collective Action initiatives and serve as a centre of excellence for utilizing Collective Action strategies.
Collective Action in an anti-corruption context engages business, government and civil society to work
together to address corruption in both the private and public sectors. The Basel Institute is
implementing this programme through the ICCA.
Over the last 10 years, Collective Action initiatives against corruption and money laundering have been
initiated, facilitated and developed by the Basel Institute together with various partners. Examples of
Collective Action range across global cross-sectoral initiatives such as the World Economic Forum
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.
