TI Launches Portal on Measuring Corruption

Transparency International has launched GATEway, a new online portal dedicated to documenting and sharing existing knowledge on corruption assessment. The platform offers a collection of materials on different methodologies developed and applied to measure and analyze corruption.

The objective of this initiative is to provide civil society actors, government officials and researchers with easy access to different approaches, in order to enable them to identify the most appropriate tools that can be applied to their work.

The GATEway website already offers more than 250 tools to assess corruption, organized in a searchable database. It also includes guides on the different approaches documented, highlighting best practice and the strengths and weaknesses of each methodology. Additionally, the platform offers a space for discussions and contributions by users.

The full press release about the new project is available at transparency.org
