When corruption is rampant, some of us might think that the magnitude and complexity of the situation is hopeless. At the same time, making governments more open, accountable, and responsive to citizens is not a choice, but a responsibility which lies with each and every one of us.

To “break the corruption chain” and encourage turning this fight into a global movement, we, at Libyan Transparency Association (LTA) have launched a global campaign to commemorate the 2014 International Anti-corruption Day in Libya.

The message is simple: “Taking back what was lost to corrupt practices is everyone’s responsibility”. It is the responsibility of our governments and civil society organizations, of the private sector and the media, the general public, and of the youth, who must play a pivotal role in seeing this agenda through so that their future is built on solid and honest foundations.

Today, we, as partners, mark the International Anti Corruption Day. For, indeed, fighting corruption effectively requires a partnership of all stakeholders, not only the government but also civil society, the youth, women, the media, among others. “Break the Corruption Chain”, this year’s theme, is a clear message, capturing the need for us to form partnerships, work together, to raise awareness in societies about corruption, to report it, to prosecute it, to punish it, to deter it, and to ensure integrity and accountability for the benefit of all citizens and governments. Only then, can economic prosperity, equality and justice for all.
