Anti-Corruption and Complaints

Corruption undermines the respect for and protection of human rights. Civil Rights Defenders has zero tolerance for corruption and work to combat corruption and misconduct directly and indirectly. The organisation will avoid conflicts of interest in all its work and undertakings.

Transparency International defines corruption as “abuse of entrusted power for personal gain”. Corruption includes bribery, extortion, embezzlement, conflict of interest, favouritism, and nepotism, thus can be both financial and non-financial.

If you suspect any kind of corruption or misconduct, such as discrimination, sexual harassment, or other types of unethical behaviour, you can report it via the form below. You can also report other types of complaints further down.
