The mission of Transparency International is to create change towards a world free of corruption. Corruption is the abuse of entrusted power for private gain. It hurts everyone whose life, livelihood or happiness depends on the integrity of people in a position of authority. Transparency International challenges the inevitability of corruption, and offers hope to its victims.

It is a global network including more than 90 locally established national chapters and chapters-in-formation.

Transparency International's Advocacy and Legal Advice Centre (ALAC), which was first opened in 2003 provides free and confidential legal advice to witnesses and victims of corruption. It now has over 100 ALAC offices in over 60 countries.
