Who Are We?
We tackle corruption by shining a light on the illegal practices and unfair laws that weaken our democracy.
Transparency International Australia is the Australian national chapter of an international coalition against corruption, operating in over 100 countries.
Through Transparency International we are part of a global movement leading the fight against corruption. Each chapter is independent and unique, and together we aspire to a unified vision: a world free of corruption.
We shine a spotlight on corruption through our research, which provides solutions for governments, business and community groups to build a better system for all.
We are working together with governments, businesses, communities and organisations tackling corruption around the world to achieve a shared vision of a world without corruption.
By tackling corruption, we are tackling the barriers to fair and sustainable development, and addressing the root causes of so many of the world’s political, social and environmental challenges.
