TIAC— Transparência e Integridade, Associação Cívica

ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

TIAC is the Portuguese representative of the global anti-corruption net-work Transparency International. TIAC strives for the access to public information by promoting an informed, active and participatory citizen-ship. Recent studies suggest that Portuguese citizens’ awareness regar-ding the corruption phenomenon is increasing, along with the percep-tions of the institutions’ ineffectiveness to prevent and fight this type of crime. Nonetheless, both the majority of the population and policy makers still lack specialized knowledge about international best practi-ces and the most adequate public policies to fight corruption and pro-mote transparency and public participation. TIAC is aimed at contribu-ting to increase and disseminate this knowledge, mobilise citizens and put decision-makers under pressure to define and implement the best public policies on transparency, information access, public participa-tion, and governance, in order to fight corruption and improve the qua-lity of Portuguese democracy.
