International Anti-Corruption Day 2016

International Anti-Corruption Day 2016

Today, 9 December, is Anti-corruption Day and people throughout the world are taking action! Please join them and commit to playing your part in defeating corruption.

People are dying because money meant for health care is stolen. The proceeds of large-scale corruption laundered in luxury property. Women and girls subjected to sexual demands in return for passing exams. Democracy undermined by money in politics. Factory workers losing their lives when unsafe buildings certified by unscrupulous inspectors collapse. Hard earned tax payer money misappropriated.

Directly or indirectly, rich or poor, male or female, all of us are affected by corruption. But it does not have to be this way. All of us also have the power to fight corruption.

Imagine a future where people throughout the world act together to reject corruption. Together we can and will bring about real change. This is what you can do in your daily life, in your place of work, in schools, hospitals and places of worship to be part of this change:

  • Do not pay bribes
  • Do not seek bribes
  • Work with others to campaign against corruption
  • Speak out on corruption and report on abuse
  • Only support candidates for public office who say no to corruption and demonstrate transparency, accountability and integrity

Please show your solidarity with the billions of victims of corruption around the world and add your voice to those who are saying enough is enough! Please sign the Declaration Against Corruption and encourage your family and friends and colleagues to do so.

For any press enquiries please contact press@transparency.org
