Transparency International is a non-governmental organisation dedicated to increasing government accountability and curbing both international + national corruption. National chapters try to build systems that combat corruption.

TI have been closely + independently monitoring the implementation of The OECD Anti-Bribery Convention which marks a turning point in the international fight against corruption and argue that its success or failure depends on full, swift and effective ratification and implementation by all signatory states.

In 2000, Ian Marshall of TI-Canada produced an interesting background paper focused on Corruption Issues in the Mining & Mineral Sector with case studies from individual mining companies, and details on the role of governments.
