Transparency International (TI) is the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption. In collaboration with 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.

The project ‘Ending Impunity for Grand Corruption in the Western Balkans and Turkey’, funded by DG NEAR, started in November 2018 and is planned to end in December 2020/March 2021. The project involves six TI National Chapters and one partner organization in Albania. The Programme Coordinator will assume the coordination of this project, working closely with colleagues in policy and advocacy, research, communications, monitoring and evaluation, and SAFE (Safeguarding Anti-Corruption Fighters’ Efforts) teams.
