Transparency International is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation dedicated to fighting corruption.
TI movement vision: a world in which government, business, civil society and the daily lives of people are free of corruption.
In 1993, a few individuals decided to take a stance against corruption and created Transparency International.

Through more than 100 national chapters worldwide and an international secretariat in Berlin, Transparency International works with partners in government, business and civil society to put effective measures in place to tackle corruption.
Transparency International is politically non-partisan and places great importance on its independence. It alone determines its programmes and activities – no donor has any input intoTransparency International’s policies. Its sources of funding are made transparent as is its spending.
Transparency International Italia, founded in Milan in 1996, is the national chapter for Italy.
