Postby JurgHab » Sat Aug 19, 2006 10:29 am

Transparency International, the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption, brings people together in a powerful worldwide coalition to end the devastating impact of corruption on men, women and children around the world.
TI’s mission is to create change towards a world free of corruption.

TI works on a policy oriented basis.
Each National Chapter deploys a conjunctural strategy signifying lobbying activities in the context of the country and its societal situation.
National Chapters are free to develop anti-corruption plans on the basis of standing obstacles in their countries.
The input of Transparency International HQ is critical to supporting the reputation, credibility and legitimacy of TI as an active policy-proposer and whistleblower in society and therefore ascertains a large degree of influence wherever TI operates (currently in 90 countries). It is not a profit making organisation.
Examples of what TI has achieved are eradicating corruption in "less significant" sectors of society such as natural resources management. This is a practical paradigm.
Judicially, TI has been at the nucleus of drawing up the UN Convention for Human Rights and is a whistleblower on its defects. It is also an initiator of the OECD Convention on Human Rights - a large degree of this is implemented in daily examples of Cypriot life - even your own Michalis5354.


Where do you believe Cyprus has ground to stamp out Corruption as presently stands michalis5354?

michalis questions are good ones. And I think you will need a lot of people to be able to make a difference. A group of 20-30 people will not be able to do much i think.

Corruption can never be eliminated. It can only be reduced. Thus, the only way to do so is to decrease the size of government. The smaller the government is, the less the corruption.
