Transparency International

Transparency International (TI) is a non-profit, non-government organisation dedicated to fighting corruption both internationally and at the national level.

It was formed in 1993 and immediately generated enormous interest and support. There are now more than 100 chapters worldwide who work both within their own countries, and form networks with other chapters to pursue our ideals at an international level.

Rather than focusing on naming names or denouncing individuals and companies, TI is committed to creating and working with broad coalitions representing civil society to prevent corruption by reforming systems. It does not investigate or prosecute individual cases and is politically non-partisan.

Transparency International Papua New Guinea

Transparency International Papua New Guinea (TI PNG) is a chapter of TI. TIPNG was formed in 1997 by a group of concerned citizens, headed by the Late Sir Anthony Siaguru, with the aim of combating corruption and 

promoting openness, honesty and accountability in public and private dealings.

With the vision of protecting the integrity of the people, society and the nation, TI PNG's core business is to create awareness on the damaging effects of corruption and empower people to make an active choice against it.

TI PNG undertakes a number of activities to fight corruption in PNG.

  1. Providing a TI PNG position on hot issues of the day, such as public appointments, misappropriation of public money, and the passage of laws pertaining to our mandate, through media releases, letters to the editor and position papers to government.
  2. Research and analysis of the extent and effect of corruption in PNG.
  3. Disseminating information about corruption issues to the wider public, including a quarterly newsletter to all members and supporters.
  4. Supporting the growth of coalitions amongst wider PNG society, such as the Youth Against Corruption Association (YACA) and the Community Coalition Against Corruption (CCAC).
  5. Undertaking projects such as the Electoral Reform and Awareness project, and the Standing Against Corruption Is Your Choice project. TI PNG obtains our funding from contributions from our members, and from project activity.


A country where citizens live in a constitutional democracy and where government, politics and businesses operate free from corruption and subject to good governance. 


To inform, educate and empower people in Papua New Guinea to take action against corruption. To work together to ensure demonstrated high standards of accountability at all levels of society.
