Integrity Initiatives International

Overview

Integrity Initiatives International (III, pronounced “triple I”)(integrityinitiativesinternational.org) is an international NGO focused on combating grand corruption by strengthening the enforcement of criminal laws against corrupt leaders, also known as kleptocrats. III’s primary initiative is catalyzing and coordinating a campaign to establish an International Anti-Corruption Court (IACC). The Outreach and Communications Coordinator will play a key role in the emerging campaign for the Court.

 

Support for an IACC has grown significantly since June 2021 when III first released a Declaration in support of the creation of the Court that was signed by over 120 world leaders from 45 countries. Momentum is growing. The Declaration now has signatures from more than 270 world leaders from 80 countries, including 43 former presidents and prime ministers and 32 Nobel laureates. Working with international partners to create an IACC has since been made official foreign policy for both Canada and the Netherlands, and two successive administrations in Colombia have endorsed the Court. III also works with a growing civil society coalition to engage other governments in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America.

 

Integrity Initiatives International is a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE (tsne.org).

 

Responsibilities

The Outreach and Communications Coordinator will – in collaboration with the Program Director, Chair, and members of its Board – take a leading role in building the global coalition of civil society organizations for the IACC and in planning, designing and executing a communications strategy to inform and educate key governments, the public, media, and other audiences about III’s activities and accomplishments.
