Transparency International - Czech Republic (TIC) is a non-governmental organization, whose objective is to monitor the state of corruption in the Czech Republic and contribute to its systemic reduction.
TIC’s activities concern a number of areas, such as public procurement, issues concerning conflicts of interest or non-transparent public finance management. Education and training courses represent one of major tools for dissemination of anti-corruption know-how in the country.
TIC is one of more than 90 chapters of Transparency International (TI). TI’s mission is to create change towards a world free of corruption. TI and its chapters bring together relevant players from government, civil society, business and the media to promote transparency in elections, in public administration, in procurement and in business.
In cooperation with the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs – within the Transition Promotion Program, TIC implements anti-corruption projects in Georgia and Ukraine. In Georgia, TIC aims to strengthen a capacity of Transparency International – Georgia (TIG) in the area of providing legal advice services to persons affected by corrupt behavior, and to encourage representatives of public administration and journalists in cooperation with TIG on the field of fight against corruption. In Ukraine, TIC supports establishment of a professional and competent anti-corruption NGO.
