Our chapters

Map of Transparency International chapters, current as of November 2012

Transparency International consists of more than 100 chapters – locally established, independent organisations – that fight corruption in their respective countries.

From small bribes to large-scale looting, corruption differs from country to country. As chapters are staffed with local experts they are ideally placed to determine the priorities and approaches best suited to tackling corruption in their countries. This work ranges from visiting rural communities to provide free legal support to advising their government on policy reform.

Corruption does not stop at national borders. The chapters play a crucial role in shaping our collective work and realising our regional and global goals, such as Strategy 2015. Transparency International’s multi-country research and advocacy initiatives are driven by the chapters. 

Our chapter accreditation process aims to ensure the quality and integrity of Transparency International’s work around the world.
