Chapter Summary

Transparency International (TI) attempts to combat corruption at the international level, and through its National Chapters at the national level, by raising public awareness of the occurrence and impact of corruption. Corruption is as old as mankind, as is the fighting of corruption and safeguarding of integrity. TI is a global network including more than 90 locally-established national chapters and chapters-in-formation. Unlike other NGOs, TI accepts direct financial support from governments and the business world. The authorities of TI are the board of directors, the international secretariat, the national chapters, the individual members, and the advisory council. Transparency International receives funding from governments, corporate donors, individuals, foundations, and other development organizations. TI has consistently resisted extending its campaign to so-called 'facilitating' or 'expediting' payments, the purpose of which is to expedite or secure the performance of routine governmental actions.
