Transparency International confirms the disaccreditation of its chapter in the US

Issued by Transparency International Secretariat



Transparency International, the world’s leading anti-corruption movement, confirmed that its International Board of Directors decided on 10 January 2017 to disaccredit Transparency International-USA as the National Chapter in the United States. 

This action took place in accordance with Transparency International's Accreditation Policy and included an initial Board decision on 27 November 2016, and a subsequent recommendation by a reconsideration panel on 2 January 2017, as provided in this policy.  All accredited Chapters of Transparency International undergo an accreditation review every three years to ensure consistency with Transparency International’s mission, values and principles and to confirm mutual interest in continuing working together.

As stated by the former chapter, the basis for the disaccreditation was the Board’s recognition of differences in philosophies, strategies, and priorities between the former chapter and the Transparency International Movement.

Transparency International further confirmed that it remains fully committed to supporting the fight against corruption in the United States, alongside US civil society organisations, individuals, including its Individual Members in the United States, companies, and government agencies, based on Transparency International’s 2020 Strategy and its mission, values and principles.

Nadie es perfecto

Los países con las puntuaciones más altas en el IPC, como Dinamarca, Suiza e Islandia, no son inmunes a la corrupción. Si bien el IPC muestra que los sectores públicos en estos países están entre los menos corruptos del mundo, la corrupción existe, especialmente en casos de lavado de dinero y otras formas de corrupción en el sector privado.

Переполох на верху

Страны с самым высоким рейтингом по ИВК, такие как Дания, Швейцария и Исландия, не защищены от коррупции. Хотя ИВК показывает, что государственный сектор в этих странах является одним из самых чистых в мире, коррупция все еще существует, особенно в случаях отмывания денег и другой коррупции в частном секторе.

Problèmes au sommet

Les pays les mieux classés sur l’IPC comme le Danemark, la Suisse et l’Islande ne sont pas à l’abri de la corruption. Bien que l’IPC montre que les secteurs publics de ces pays sont parmi les moins corrompus au monde, la corruption existe toujours, en particulier dans les cas de blanchiment d’argent et d’autres formes de corruption du secteur privé.
