Transparency International, the global civil society
organisation leading the fight against corruption, brings people together in a
powerful worldwide coalition to end the devastating impact of corruption on men,
women and children around the world.
TI's mission is to create change towards
a world free of corruption.
Transparency International challenges the
inevitability of corruption, and offers hope to its victims. Since its founding
in 1993, TI has played a lead role in improving the lives of millions around the
world by building momentum for the anti-corruption movement. TI raises awareness
and diminishes apathy and tolerance of corruption, and devises and implements
practical actions to address it.
Transparency International is a global
network including more than 90 locally established national chapters and
chapters-in-formation. These bodies fight corruption in the national arena in a
number of ways. They bring together relevant players from government, civil
society, business and the media to promote transparency in elections, in public
administration, in procurement and in business. TI's global network of chapters
and contacts also use advocacy campaigns to lobby governments to implement
Politically non-partisan, TI does not undertake
investigations of alleged corruption or expose individual cases, but at times
will work in coalition with organisations that do.
TI has the skills,
tools, experience, expertise and broad participation to fight corruption on the
ground, as well as through global and regional initiatives.
Now in its
second decade, Transparency International is maturing, intensifying and
diversifying its fight against corruption.
