Transparency International is a global anti-corruption NGO with over 100 chapters worldwide, founded in 1993 by Peter Eigen, former Director of the World Bank, and currently chaired by Delia Ferreira. This global anti-corruption network is known, among other things, through its signature analytical products: the Corruption Perceptions Index and the Global Corruption Barometer study. In the 2017 Global Go To Think Index Tank report, Transparency International ranked 51st out of 175 think tanks globally. It also ranked first among the 65 global think tanks working on open and good governance.
Foundation of Transparency International Ukraine CSO
Transparency International Ukraine grew from a Ukrainian NGO Creative Union “TORO” that started operations in 1999 in Kropyvnytskyi (Kirovohrad). Since 1 June, 2012 the organization officially evolved into Transparency International Ukraine with 10 employees on board. In October 2014, Transparency International Ukraine received the official accreditation as a chapter of Transparency International, granted at the annual membership meeting.
Activity Following the Revolution of Dignity
Throughout the Revolution of Dignity, TIU was a source of unbiased information on the situation in Ukraine for journalists and international partners. At that time, TIU joined a nucleus of organizations that would later on form the Reanimation Package of Reforms Platform, and together with its partners developed the foundation package for anti-corruption laws. After the Revolution of Dignity, TIU focused on monitoring of anti-corruption reform implementation and inauguration of new anti-corruption bodies. In 2016, the headquarters moved to Kyiv, opening up broader opportunities for the promotion of anti-corruption reform.
TIU administered the public procurement reform, transferring the respective electronic systems to the government – currently, they are managed by state-owned enterprises ProZorro and ProZorro.Sale. Transparency International Ukraine also helped with the healthcare reform through eHealth.
TI Ukraine played a major part in the launch of the High Anti-Corruption Court. Together with our partners from other NGOs, we managed to conduct a successful advocacy campaign leading to adoption of the respective law consistent with the requirements of the Venice Commission. Transparency International Ukraine has also analyzed the candidates for the positions of anti-corruption judges.
The Ukrainian chapter of TI was one of the first organizations in the country working on support of corruption whistleblowers. TI Ukraine holds annual awareness campaigns aimed at changing public attitude to corruption. TI Ukraine also works on implementation of transparency in local self-government through the Transparent Cities program. The organization executes oversight of compliance with legislation and principles of the ProZorro system through the community united around the DOZORRO project.
