    Integrity Initiatives International
  • Overview

    In 2016, Mark L. Wolf, Justice Richard Goldstone of South Africa, and colleagues formed Integrity Initiatives International (“III”) (www.integrityinitiatives.org) to combat grand corruption, also known as “kleptocracy” -- the abuse of public office for private gain by a nation’s leaders.

     

    The mission of III is to strengthen the enforcement of criminal laws in order to punish and deter leaders who are corrupt.

     

    III does this by:

    • Supporting national measures, such as the recently created High Anti-Corruption Court in Ukraine;
    • Promoting understanding of the close connection between grand corruption and violations of human rights;
    • Collaboration between human rights and anti-corruption organizations;
    • Forging a network of young people dedicated to combating corruption in their own country and around the world;
    • Catalyzing a campaign for the establishment of an International Anti-Corruption Court (“IACC”). 

    III is a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE MissionWorks (www.tsne.org).
