Transparency International (TI) is the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption. Through more than 100 chapters worldwide and an International Secretariat in Berlin, Germany, 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.
 
Afghanistan Programme
 
In 2016, Afghanistan stands at a critical juncture that will determine its future as a country. The new democratically elected government has taken power against a backdrop of withdrawing international forces. While immediate prospects for peace remain unclear, what is certain is that long-term stability cannot be secured unless a sustained effort is made to tackle corruption in the country. In 2015, Afghanistan ranked 166 out of 168 countries on TI’s Corruption Perception Index and 90% of citizens said corruption is a problem in their daily lives. Needed reforms can only take place with high level political will to address corruption.
 
Since 2012 TI has been working on Afghanistan actively seeking to change this, and is now on the breakthrough point of establishing a sustainable presence in Kabul with the programmatic and operational support of a Berlin-based team. By developing and implementing a 3-year Programme on Afghanistan (2016-2019), TI is taking the challenge to play a crucial role in tackling corruption and improve transparency, integrity and accountability at the national level. July-December 2016 is a critical period to deliver discrete outcomes for TI’s work in Afghanistan, which is the basis of seeking issue-expert consultants.
