“The mission of Integrity Initiatives International (III, pronounced “triple I”) is to strengthen the enforcement of criminal laws to punish and deter leaders who are corrupt and regularly violate human rights, and also to create opportunities for the democratic process to replace them with leaders dedicated to serving their citizens rather than enriching themselves.
III works to end grand corruption in a range of ways including supporting national measures such as the special anti-corruption court in Ukraine and forging an international network of youth leaders working on the frontlines of anti-corruption in their countries. It is the leading advocate for the establishment of an International Anti-Corruption Court (IACC), and it is now catalyzing and coordinating the international campaign to establish it.”
