Transparency International launches Integrity Awards

A signal to encourage those who have made the fight against corruption their mission

Issued by Transparency International Secretariat



Transparency International [TI], the global non-profit organisation devoted to curbing corruption, wishes to recognise the efforts of individuals and organisations, which have made tangible contributions to promoting the cause of transparency and good governance.

TI is now launching a general call for nominations for consideration by the members of the Integrity Awards Committee. It is expected that the first group of awards recipients will be honoured at TI's next Annual General Meeting to be held next September in Ottawa, Canada.

The newly instituted yearly awards will seek to reward those who have undertaken innovative or courageous actions that have a significant impact on existing levels of corruption in a given country or region, and are likely to attract interest or lead to emulation in other parts of the world.

"In many countries the fight against corruption is waged at very high personal risk. We want to acknowledge the courage of those who carry on in spite of difficult circumstances as well as the determination of those deserving individuals and organisations who make it their mission to counter corruption," explained Peter Eigen, Chairman of Transparency International.

Information on eligibility and nomination requirements is available on the TI website at www.transparency.org/.

Individuals or organisations wishing to submit one or several nominations can do so before May 30th. Nominations should be sent to the TI Integrity Awards Committee Secretariat by post, fax or email to the following address:

Legally sanctioned lying: A moment of truth for the Czech Republic?

A court in Prague struck a blow to civil society in the Czech Republic on Friday, ruling in favour of Prime Minister Andrej Babiš in a libel suit brought by TI Czech Republic.

Next week governments can take a step to close down secrecy jurisdictions. Will they?

National financial regulators attending the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) plenary in Paris 16 – 21 February have the opportunity to significantly reduce money laundering, corruption and terror financing. They must not squander the opportunity.

Why don’t the victims of bribery share in the record-breaking Airbus settlement?

Last Friday, French, UK and US authorities announced that Airbus would pay record penalties for foreign bribery. Notably absent in the agreements are any plans to share the penalty payment with the countries where the company was paying bribes.

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.
