SciVortex Corp in the International Anticorrupction Conference #IACC2024

On june 20, 2024, during the Transparency International #IACC2024, Eduardo Salcedo-Albaran, SciVortex Corp director, participated at the panel organized by GIZ , “Building Resilient Democracies: Strengthening Civil Society to Counter Autocratization Tendencies.” With inputs and comments by Eduardo Nunez as moderator, Eduardo Salcedo-Albarán joined three worldleading speakers:





María José Veramendi Villa, Human Rights and Anti-Corruption Officer at the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, pointed out the urgency of acknowledging the circular causality between corruption and human rights violations as a critical step for empowering active citizens.





Karam Jeet Singh, director of Corruption Watch, South African Chapter of Transparency International, underscored the uphill battle in advancing anti-corruption actions in the country and the positive results that those actions have reported for South African citizens, even at the level of public health achievements. Also, the development and adoption of digital tools have proven to be critical for engaging citizens.



Khushbu Agrawal, advisor on political funding at International IDEA, explained cases of digital tools to reveal and trace the funding of political campaigns and highlighted some perverse economic incentives that current digital trends create in the space of political activism. The proliferation of misinformation, deep fakes, and clickbait significantly affects political campaigns, as proven in the recent Indian presidential elections.




Eduardo Salcedo-Albarán I focused on how essential it is for Civil Society Organizations to use tools that allow them to understand the increasing complexity of systems of corruption and autocratization. For this purpose, I presented ARCON (https://lnkd.in/gjk6HsS3), one of the recent robotic tools #SciVortex is developing to analyze and visualize the flows of transnational criminal networks automatically.
