|Lebanese Transparency Association|
LTA, which was established in May 1999, is Transparency International (TI)'s Lebanese chapter. It is the first Lebanese NGO that focuses on curbing corruption and promoting the principles of good governance.
Realizing the unacceptable levels corruption reached in Lebanon and the need to act against it, a group of business people, academics, economists, lawyers and intellectuals joined forces to found LTA in May 1999 in a bid to curb corruption through civil society.
The organization resorts to all appropriate means to fight corruption, improve the quality of life, and encourage civil society to take measures towards transparency and accountability.
LTA does not investigate or expose individual cases of corruption, instead, LTA advocates for reform by focusing on systemic improvement and by building coalitions with other anti-corruption stakeholders, including the government, parliamentarians, the private sector, media institutions, the international community and civil society organizations.
