Sports Lovers All!

TI UK has recently released a guide on how to prevent match-fixing in soccer at club level.  The guide targets football club officials and those who work with football players at all levels in the United Kingdom.

 

G20 whistleblowing laws – a lesson from Australia

TI Australia Director, Prof. AJ Brown, notes that ‘Legal protection for whistleblowers living in the world’s biggest economies, the Group of 20, is patchy at best and needs to be strengthened to bolster the fight against corruption. The good news is that G20 leaders meeting in Brisbane in November can help make this happen.’

 

To End Poverty: Strong, Accountable Institutions Matter

TI research confirms the strong correlation between the rate of bribery and several key development indicators, and joins UK Prime Minister David Cameron and many round the world calling for more open and accountable governance. Governance and anti-corruption must be top priorities when new development goals and targets are set in September 2015.
