Our goal as an independent professional organization is to contribute to mitigating corruption, promoting transparency and accountability in the public sphere of decision making processes as well as allocation of public funds, moreover to improving accessibility of public interest information.
Government, business actors, policy-makers and the general public condemn corruption, and reject all attempts of bribery. As a result of a corruption-free public life, public funds are used in a transparent way, government funding systems are comprehensible. Public information is available and easily accessible. Representations of interests (advocacy, lobbying) operate in a well-regulated environment in a transparent way.
