Transparency International (TI) is the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption. In collaboration with more than 100 chapters worldwide and an international secretariat in Berlin, Germany, TI raises awareness of the damaging effects of corruption and works with partners in government, business and civil society to develop and implement effective measures to tackle it.

In the past 12 months, TI has moved its Pacific support closer to the region by recruiting a staff member based in Australia to support TI’s plans in the region. In the context of a four-year regional programme beginning in 2020, TI is now looking for an outstanding individual to support TI’s Pacific engagement through empowering national chapters and other national level stakeholders in the region.

Strong and sustainable National Chapters are an essential component of TI’s strategy to be impactful and credible anticorruption actors in the region.

The Regional Coordinator/Advisor will work closely with Pacific TI chapters including Australia and New Zealand, the Pacific Regional Engagement and Advocacy Lead based in the region, as well as the Asia Pacific Team at the TI Secretariat in Berlin.

This is an exciting position that will play a fundamental role in TI’s ability to have impact and enable change in a key region of the world.

Main function: Working closely with, and reporting to the Pacific Regional Engagement and Advocacy Lead, the Regional Coordinator/Advisor is responsible for strengthening TI’s presence, reputation and impact in Pacific countries for which they are the primary contact. The Regional Coordinator/Advisor supports National Chapters’ work at national level, monitors political developments and reputational risks, coordinates capacity development interventions, and helps to ensure implementation of the TI accreditation process and governance principles.

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.

مشكلة في الأعلى

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.

Индекс восприятия коррупции 2019

Индекс восприятия коррупции 2019 года выявил, что огромное число стран практически не показывает улучшения в борьбе с коррупцией. Наш анализ также показывает, что сокращение больших денег в политике и содействие инклюзивному принятию политических решений необходимы для сдерживания коррупции.
