With headquarters in Berlin, Transparency International (TI) is an international non-governmental organization dedicated to combating corruption in its many guises across the world. As their website notes, TI “focuses on prevention and reforming systems”. With a well-designed and rather elegant homepage, visitors will find much to admire here. The top of the homepage provides access to their “In Focus” feature, which draws attention to some of TI’s more recent work, such as the Global Corruption Report for 2006. Below this feature, visitors will find links to recent news stories dealing with corruption, such as the recent Kenyan government scandal and anti-corruption initiatives in West Africa. Visitors can also utilize the “Corruption: Learn About it” area, as it contains FAQs on corruption, and a number of indices, such as the global corruption barometer as well as a number of regional surveys. For pragmatic material, one need to look no further than their “How to Fight Corruption” section, which contains an anti-corruption handbook and a set of business principles for countering bribery.
