The NGO - Transparency International
Transparency International is a global movement with one vision: a world in which government, business, civil society and the daily lives of people are free of corruption. Through more than 100 chapters worldwide and an international secretariat in Berlin, Transparency InternationaI is leading the fight against corruption to turn this vision into reality.
Since 1993, Transparency International has campaigned for greater transparency and accountability in governments and business. Independent and politically non-partisan they work with partners in government, business and civil society to stop corruption. Every year they provide free legal support to thousands of victims of corruption and conduct in depth research to uncover how corruption affects a particular country or sector.
Corruption is the abuse of entrusted power for private gain. It hurts everyone who depends on the integrity of people in a position of authority. By standing together people have the power to make a difference. Corruption must not pay and the corrupt must be legally, politically and socially sanctioned.
Take action against impunity for corruption: Party’s Over
Transparency International is engaging in a worldwide initiative to stop the corrupt from getting away with it.
Who are the corrupt? Greedy and corrupt politicians, business executives and people in power enjoy unearned benefits and lavish lifestyles, often in full view of the public. It is ordinary people, meanwhile, who suffer everyday as a result of this behavior. The corrupt will continue to abuse their positions of power unless they know there will be real consequences.
How does Transparency International plan to stop the corrupt? The corrupt should be brought to justice and visibly punished. No longer should they receive assistance or protection for their crimes. Prosecuting powers can be strengthened, legal loopholes closed and stolen funds returned to the people. People everywhere need to say no more impunity.
Part of the impunity initiative is to develop a logo/visual identity to communicate its main ideas. The slogan for the impunity initiative is: “Party’s Over”. The corrupt have to be stopped – they should not be able to get away with their behaviour any more.
There are 4 major focal points expressed through the following taglines:
- No votes, no power.
If citizens stop voting for corrupt politicians, they are voted out, they will have no power.
- No bribes, no money.
If corrupt people don't get money from bribes, they will have no money to launder or to buy companies or luxury goods with money that has illegal origins.
- No privileges, no impunity.
If all are equal in front of the law, without privileges then those found guilty of corruption will be prosecuted and serve their sentences instead of getting away with it.
- No exception, no escape.
If anti-corruption measures are effectively implemented, everyone will be subject to the same rules and there will be no place for corrupt people to escape complying with it.
