Say “No” to corruption

Today, 9 December is World Anti-Corruption Day.

Your right, your role: Say no to corruption 

“Corruption affects all areas of society. Preventing corruption unlocks progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, helps protect our planet, creates jobs, achieves gender equality, and secures wider access to essential services such as healthcare and education
“While it is everyone’s right to benefit from strong anti-corruption efforts, misconduct and wrongdoing is stealing away valuable resources at a time when they are most needed to respond to and recover from the COVID-19 crisis. 
“The 2021 International Anti-Corruption Day seeks to highlight the rights and responsibilities of everyone - including States, Government officials, civil servants, law enforcement officers, media representatives, the private sector, civil society, academia, the public and youth - in tackling corruption.”

- United Nations

TINZ and TI chapters around the world are signatories on an open letter to governments participating in the 2021 Summit for Democracy in conjunction with Anti-Corruption Day.

From the letter: 

“In the worst affected countries, the failure to combat corruption has meant suffering for people who continue to be denied basic public services, deprived of economic opportunities and locked into poverty. In many others, it has meant policies and decisions that are increasingly skewed in the interest of the few, while accountability mechanisms are weakened or even captured.”


“We would not be facing the problems of such scale today if previous anti-corruption commitments and pledges had been conscientiously implemented by governments.”
