The network key figures
The Network for Integrity has an international dimension. It brings together institutions that share common values and missions related to transparency, ethics and integrity of public officials.
“Corruption is a tax that is paid by the poorest in our countries and this, of course, has to do with democracy. (…), corruption erodes democracy and affects governance.”
“To fight today against corruption, we must create a collective public consciousness internationally.”
“None of us knows what we all know, together.”
“Accountability is the essence of democracy. If people do not know what their government is doing, they cannot be truly self-governing.”
"The fight against corruption begins with international cooperation, but will only end when the battle has been won in all sectors of all societies."
“Ordinary people have to fight corruption that they see in their daily lives.”
“A lack of transparency results in distrust and a deep sense of insecurity.”
“In my travels around the world, I have seen the corrosive impact of corruption on the lives of the poor and, therefore, the rapid loss of trust that people place in their rulers.”
"We can't entrust everything to laws, we must set a good example.”
