WHAT IS TRANSPARENCY INTERNATIONAL
Transparency International (TI), the only one nongovernmental organization universally devoted to combating corruption, brings civil society, private sector and governments on a global coalition.
Through its chapters in the world and its International Secretariat, Transparency International, discusses the different facets of corruption, both within countries and in terms of economic, trade and international policies. The purpose is to understand and cope with two faces of corruption: who corrupts and who can be corrupted.
Internationally, TI drives awareness campaigns on the effects of corruption, promotes the adoption of political reforms, the establishment of international conventions on the subject, and encourages adherence to them and then observe the implementation of such agreements by Governments, corporations and businesses. Also, at national level, Transparency International chapters act in pursuit of greater transparency and the realization of the principle of accountability. To this end, TI monitors the performance of key institutions and pressing for nonpartisan adoption of reforms that are needed.
TI does not report individual cases of corruption (which we understand a fundamental task for journalists, with many of them in chapters TI), but instead focuses its efforts in a perspective of sustainable achievements in the long term, favoring the prevention and systems reform.
Perhaps the main tool in the fight against corruption is access to information. That’s why we offer this web page to all stakeholders to actively participate in the fight and activities of Transparency International. We hope that this website will be a valuable contribution to assessing the achievements of recent years and to address the challenges ahead.
