“I am honoured to take on this position at such a crucial time for the anti-corruption movement. Our work is needed more than ever. As the leading global anti-corruption movement, Transparency International will hold the corrupt to account, stop impunity for corruption and ensure that corruption does not blight the lives of the most vulnerable,” said Patricia Moreira.
