WELCOME ABOARD â€“ BE INSPIRED!
WHAT IS TRANSPARENCY INTERNATIONAL?
Transparency International is a global movement that shares one vision:
A WORLD IN WHICH GOVERNMENT, BUSINESS,
POLITICS, CIVIL SOCIETY
AND THE DAILY LIVES OF PEOPLE ARE
FREE OF CORRUPTION Transparency International consists of more than 100 chapters (with an international Secretariat in Berlin) â€“ locally established, independent organisations that fight corruption in their respective countries. FROM SMALL BRIBES TO LARGE-SCALE LOOTING CORRUPTION DIFFERS FROM COUNTRY TO COUNTRY. Since chapters are staffed with local experts, they are ideally placed to determine the priorities and approaches best suited to tackling corruption in their countries. This work ranges from visiting rural communities or providing free legal support to advising their government on policy reform. CORRUPTION DOES NOT STOP AT NATIONAL BORDERS. The chapters play a crucial role in shaping collective work and realizing regional and global goals. 3
WHAT IS TRANSPARENCY Introduction INTERNATIONAL LITHUANIAN CHAPTER?
The Transparency International Lithuanian Chapter is a non-governmental and non-for-profit organisation that promotes transparency, accountability and anti-corruption initiatives in Lithuania and abroad. The Transparency International Lithuanian Chapter is a fully-accredited member of the global Transparency International network and was established on 6 June, 2000 by the Open Society Fund Lithuania. TI Lithuania is involved in a vast number of anti-corruption and transparency initiatives focusing primarily on:
Development of Internet transparency tools
Transparency of public finance and procurement
Transparency of political parties and campaigns
Civic integrity education and empowerment of citizens
Promotion of transparency principles and integrity to youth and their inclusion into anti-corruption initiatives
ACCESS TO INFORMATION – the right by law – often through freedom of information legislation (acts or laws) – to access key facts and data from the government and any public body. Budgets, project approvals and evaluations are typically published although citizens can petition for more materials to be released. ACCOUNTABILITY is the concept that individuals, agencies and organisations (public, private and civil society) are held responsible for executing their powers properly. ASSET RECOVERY – is the legal process of a country, government and/or its citizens to recover state resources stolen through corruption by current and past regimes, their families and political allies, or foreign actors. BRIBERY is the offering, promising, giving, accepting or soliciting of an advantage as an inducement for an action which is illegal, unethical or a breach of trust. Inducements can take the form of gifts, loans, fees, rewards or other advantages (taxes, services, donations, etc) CIVIL SOCIETY is the arena, outside of the family, state and market where people associate to advance a common set of interests. Voluntary and community groups, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), trade unions and faith-based organisations commonly are included in this sphere, making the term broader than an NGO. CLIENTELISM is an unequal system of exchanging resources and favors based on an exploitative relationship between a wealthier and/or more powerful 'patron' and a less wealthy and weaker 'client'. COLLUSION is a secret agreement between parties, in the public and/or private sector, to conspire to commit actions aimed to deceive or commit fraud with the objective of illicit financial gain. The parties involved often are referred to as 'cartels'. 5
COMPLIANCE refers to the procedures, systems or departments within public agencies or companies that ensure all legal, operational and financial activities are in conformity with current laws, rules, norms, regulations and standards. CONFLICTS OF INTERESTS are situations where an individual or the entity for which they work, whether a government, business, media outlet or civil society organisation, is confronted with choosing between the duties and demands of their position and their own private interests. CORRUPTION is the abuse of entrusted power for private gain. This is the working definition used by Transparency International (TI), applying to both the public and private sectors. DISCLOSURE is the provision of information as required under law or in good faith, regarding activities of a private individual, public official, company or organisation. Information can include a political candidate's assets, a company's financial reports, an NGO's donors or a whistleblower's accusations. EMBEZZLEMENT is a situation when a person holding office in an institution, organisation or company dishonestly and illegally appropriates, uses or traffics the funds and goods they have been entrusted with for personal enrichment or other activities. FACILITATION PAYMENT is a small bribe, also called a 'facilitating', 'speed' or 'grease' payment; made to secure or expedite the performance of a routine or necessary action to which the payer has legal or other entitlement. FRAUD â€“ the act of cheating and intentionally deceiving someone in order to gain an unfair or illegal advantage (financial, political or otherwise). Countries consider such offences to be criminal or a violation of civil law. GOVERNANCE is a concept that goes beyond the traditional notion of government to focus on the relationships between leaders, public institutions and citizens, including the processes by which they make and implement decisions. The term can also be applied to companies and NGOs. GRAND CORRUPTION are acts committed at a high level of government that distort policies or the central functioning of the state, enabling leaders to benefit at the expense of the public good. INTEGRITY is behaviours and actions consistent with a set of moral or ethical principles and standards, embraced by individuals as well as institutions, that create a barrier to corruption.
MONEY LAUNDERING is the process of concealing the origin, ownership or destination of illegally or dishonestly obtained money by hiding it within legitimate economic activities. NEPOTISM is a form of favouritism based on acquaintances and familiar relationships whereby someone in an official position exploits his or her power and authority to provide a job or favour to a family member or friend, even though he or she may not be qualified or deserving. PATRONAGE is a form of favouritism in which a person is selected, regardless of qualifications or entitlement, for a job or government benefit because of political affiliations or connections. PETTY CORRUPTION is everyday abuse of entrusted power by low- and mid-level public officials in their interactions with ordinary citizens, who often are trying to access basic goods or services in places like hospitals, schools, police departments and other agencies. PROCUREMENT is a multi-step process of established procedures to acquire goods and services by any individual, company or organisation — from the initial needs assessment to the contract's award and service delivery. PUBLIC SECTOR is the government and its decentralised units – including the police, military, public roads and transit authorities, primary schools and healthcare system – that use public funds and provide services based on the motivation to improve citizens' lives rather than to make a profit. REVOLVING DOOR. An individual who moves back and forth between public office and private companies, exploiting his/her period of government service for the benefit of the companies they used to regulate. TRANSPARENCY is a characteristic of governments, companies, organisations and individuals of being open in the clear disclosure of information, rules, plans, processes and actions. As a principle, public officials, civil servants, the managers and directors of companies and organisations, and board trustees have a duty to act visibly, predictably and understandably to promote participation and accountability. WHISTLEBLOWING is the sounding of an alarm by an employee, director, or external person, in an attempt to reveal neglect or abuses within the activities of an organisation, government body or company (or one of its business partners) that threaten public interest, its integrity and reputation.
WHY IS THIS SCHOOL DIFFERENT? The Transparency International School on Integrity consists of three teaching modules covering the public sector, private sector and civic empowerment. Each module will include theoretical definitions of corruption as it affects different parts of society and how anti-corruption tools are used in practice. PUBLIC SECTOR Abuse of office; State capture; Nepotism; Prosecution of corruption; Accountability mechanisms for public institutions.

IACC GRANTS We believe in young people's extraordinary potential to create change. So, at the TI School we seek to put our alumni in a position where they can use their newly acquired knowledge to test their ideas in practice. The Social Entrepreneurs Initiative (SEI) provides TI School alumni with an opportunity to make a difference by introducing transparency and anti-corruption initiatives in their communities. Since 2012 the International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) and Ashoka have supported this TI School scheme to encourage School alumni to develop new ideas to boost transparency, accountability and to fight corruption. The competition winners are awarded mini-grants between 500 â€“ 5,000 Euros to support the kick-off and implementation of their community initiatives. One of the School sessions is dedicated to a brainstorming exercise, overseen by IACC representatives, to identify the most innovative approaches that could be used in seeking greater transparency and fighting corruption.
