Transparency International

From villages in rural India to the corridors of power in Brussels, Transparency International (TI) gives voice to the victims and witnesses of corruption. We work together with governments, businesses and citizens to stop the abuse of power, bribery and secret deals.

As a global movement with one vision, we want a world free of corruption. Through chapters in more than 100 countries and an international secretariat in Berlin, we are leading the fight against corruption to turn this vision into reality.

Now present in more than 100 countries, TI works relentlessly to stir the world’s collective conscience and bring about change. Much remains to be done to stop corruption, but much has also been achieved, including:

  • the creation of international anti-corruption conventions
  • the prosecution of corrupt leaders and seizures of their illicitly gained riches
  • national elections won and lost on tackling corruption
  • companies held accountable for their behaviour both at home and abroad.

TI is politically non-partisan and places great importance on its independence. TI alone determines their programmes and activities – no donor has any input into Transparency International’s policies. TI sources of funding are made transparent as is their spending.
