Global Anti-Corruption Consortium logo

The Global Anti-Corruption Consortium is a groundbreaking partnership that combines the advocacy of Transparency International (TI), the global anti-corruption movement, with the investigative journalism of the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) to fight for justice and bring about change.

The idea is simple: take two organisations committed to creating impact for social good and fighting corruption and allow them to work together for greater impact.

OCCRP has a global network of local journalists and Transparency International has more than 100 chapters around the world fighting corruption. This collaboration allows journalists and Transparency International’s chapters to share data and knowledge, ensuring that the investigative stories have greater impact and that the anti-corruption campaigns are more compelling, widely communicated and successful.

The partnership connects the Transparency International chapters with experienced networks of investigative reporters around the world, including Connectas in Latin America, Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism (ARIJ) in the Middle East, the African Network of Centers for Investigative Reporting (ANCIR) in Africa and the Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN).

This project will produce high quality, high impact investigations. But rather than letting the headlines become forgotten news, these stories and the research will be used by anti-corruption activists to make a real difference, be it starting criminal investigations or pushing for new laws to end impunity. Corruption has no natural enemy on the global level. This project aims to change that.

The Global Anti-Corruption Consortium is supported by a group of funders that includes the US State Department, the governments of Argentina, Australia, Denmark, and Norway, and the Open Society Foundation.
