Cobus de Swardt on Transparency International and the fight against Corruption

Cobus de Swardt

Cobus de Swardt is the Managing Director of Transparency International (TI) which is well known for producing the annual Corruption Perceptions Index which ranks 180 countries on a scale of 0 to 10 for their level of perceived corruption. As Cobus emphasises in the interview, this is only one part of the work of TI, the main impact of TI is in its many country-based ‘chapters’: small, grass-roots TI organisations which work for greater transparency and accountability in their host countries.
