Fighting corruption in more than 120 countries around the world
Since 1993, we’ve been working around the world to stop corruption.
We’ve fought to put in place binding global conventions against corruption. We’ve held governments and companies to account, exposing the corrupt and dodgy deals (saving more than US$2 billion in the Czech Republic alone). We’ve helped hundreds of thousands of people to take a stand.
Thanks to the support of people like you all this and more has been possible. Join us and help create a cleaner, safer and more just world.
