Who’s involved

The TI Integrity, Independence and Accountability of the Judiciary Initiative (TI Judiciary Initiative)

is led, on behalf of the movement, by TI Romania who has played over the last 15 years a

“constructively critical” role by pointing out weaknesses as well as pro-actively identifying potential

solutions and developing instruments to help remedy the judicial vulnerabilities at national and

regional level.

The Initiative works with the TI-Secretariat, a network of 10 core chapters from all the regions and

an advisory board of reputable TI and non-TI international experts to advocate for an independent

and free of corruption judiciary, through new partnerships and new tools made available.

We work with TI Chapters and other international partners and build of the existing initiatives, such

as the Grand Corruption Campaign of TI; the IBA Judicial Integrity Initiative, the Judicial Integrity

Group or the Anticorruption Programme of UNDP, the Rule of Law Unit of OSCE Office for

Democratic Institutions and Human Rights or the International Commission of Jurists to make

judicial corruption a business case for practitioners, citizens and decision makers

We provide timely and tailored answers to judiciary-related queries from Transparency

International's movement as well as our international partners.

We work with judicial officials, encouraging them to stand for the integrity of the judiciary and to

demand for a change of attitude and practice from with the system

We work with civil society, anti-corruption and human rights defenders, think-tanks and grass roots

organizations to make public scrutiny of the judiciary accessible to citizens and local communities.

Our approach

Corruption undermines justice and ruins lives in many parts of the world. However, we believe that

engaging a diverse spectrum of actors – judicial practitioners, decision makers, international donors,

civil society, the business community and regular citizens – to demand an independent and honest

judiciary, we can break this vicious circle.

To build functioning judiciaries that can effectively limit the devastating impact of corruption a change

of attitude and practice is needed. To achieve a sense of achievability and urgency:

We make new evidence and solutions available

by facilitating the mapping, analysing and

reporting of systemic failures that compromise the integrity, independence and accountability of

the judiciary. This enhanced knowledge and new evidence will enable the proposal and adoption

of concrete solutions that strengthen the integrity, independence and accountability of the judiciary.

We encourage donors and other international stakeholders’

to allocate financial and technical

aid to justice sector reforms.

We support national governments, policy makers, key stakeholders within the judicial

sector and relevant oversight agencies

to adopt, monitor and enforce anti-corruption laws,

standards and procedures
