Transparency International is a global civil society organisation whose mission is to create change that will lead to a world that is free of corruption.
Our Mission is: To promote transparency, good governance and ethical practices;
- In New Zealand’s private and public sectors (whether operating in New Zealand or overseas);
- In the South Pacific; and
- Internationally, as part of the global Transparency International movement.
We are committed to ensuring that:
- New Zealand’s public service and commercial organisations demonstrate ethical, transparent, and corruption free practices,
- New Zealand fully implements international anti-corruption conventions, especially the OECD Convention on Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions, and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC)
- New Zealand’s public and private institutions have full access to non-partisan information on matters relating to corruption and transparency.
- We are able to provide financial and technical support for the anti-corruption and transparency work in the Pacific
Our activities in New Zealand include:
- Monitoring the transparency of New Zealand’s budget and public accounts.
- Improving the awareness of transparency and corruption issues in New Zealand.
- Encouraging non-partisan debate with regard to the conduct and funding of elections.
- Monitoring the implementation of New Zealand’s anti-corruption commitments.
- Supporting the investigation of allegations of bribery in international trade.
We are active in the Pacific Region
Corruption in the Pacific is a major impediment to good governance. It represents a significant risk to the stability of the South pacific Region. TI Members in Pacific Chapters have demonstrated their commitment to Transparency International through the formation of country chapters. These chapters lead the work against corruption in their countries, often at great personal risk. Transparency International New Zealand supports Pacific chapters through the provision of financial and technical support. This work is sustained through a funding and work programme agreement with NZAID.
