About Transparency International Sri Lanka

Transparency International Sri Lanka (TISL) is a National Chapter of Transparency International (TI), the leading global movement against corruption. TI raises awareness of the damaging effects of corruption and works with partners in government, business and civil society to develop and implement effective measures to tackle it. TI has an international secretariat in Berlin, Germany, and more than 90 Chapters worldwide.

Transparency International Sri Lanka (TISL) commenced active operations at the end of 2002 and has since built a strong institution arduously fighting corruption in Sri Lanka. It functions as a self-financing, autonomous Chapter of TI with its own strategic directions and priorities.

The mission/purpose of TISL’s existence is to contribute to increase understanding of corruption, strengthen anti-corruption structures and processes and to appreciate the upholding of integrity. Envisioning a nation that upholds integrity, TISLs goal is to support the collective effort to eradicate corruption in order to build a future Sri Lanka which is equitable, peaceful and just.
