International Anti-corruption Day

New public opinion survey shows widespread public alarm about corruption

“Today’s survey shows that people believe corruption is deeply embedded in their countries. When a poor young mother believes that her government places its own interests above her child’s, her hope for the future is dampened. Corruption can be rooted out when people join together to change the system that facilitates it,” said Huguette Labelle, Chair of Transparency International.

Anti-corruption media campaign

Transparency International’s television advertisement: Think Again!

Based on the theme, “Think you can’t fight corruption? Think again,” the ad challenges the view that corruption is inevitable and cannot be fought. It is a stark reminder that corruption has victims.

TV Spot "Think again!" is available in the following languages:

  •  5.78 MB
  •  5.78 MB
  •  5.79 MB
  •  5.80 MB
  •  4.52 MB

Activities around the world

On December 9 TI National Chapters across all continents will be recognizing the achievements made to date in the fight against corruption as well as the challenges that remain.

The Azerbaijani Laundromat one year on: has justice been served?

In September last year, a massive leak of bank records from 2012 to 2014 showed that the ruling elite of Azerbaijan ran a $3 billion slush fund and an international money laundering scheme. One year on, has enough been done to hold those involved to account?

Right to information: knowledge is power

The right to information is vital for preventing corruption. When citizens can access key facts and data from governments, it is more difficult to hide abuses of power and other illegal activities - governments can be held accountable.

Foreign bribery rages unchecked in over half of global trade

There are many losers and few winners when companies bribe foreign public officials to win lucrative overseas contracts. In prioritising profits over principles, governments in most major exporting countries fail to prosecute companies flouting laws criminalising foreign bribery.

Ensuring that climate funds reach those in need

As climate change creates huge ecological and economic damage, more and more money is being given to at-risk countries to help them prevent it and adapt to its effects. But poorly governed climate finance can be diverted into private bank accounts and vanity projects, often leading to damaging effects.
