Are you asked to *pay a bribe*? *Stop corruption* and *report it*! You will stay *anonymous*.
We have developed a website with Android mobile application for whistleblowers around the world. This development connects more than 100 National Chapters of Transparency International worldwide to protect the victims of corruption through a global ICT solution which has never happened before. People can record an audio or shoot a video about a specific situation when someone is offering or asking for a bribe. The whistleblower can ask for help if needed or he or she can decide to make this evidence public and share his or her location or just sent it to the local chapter of Transparency International. The whistleblower will stay anonimous but can be contected by experts of the anticorruption organization for further help. The mobile app also contains an interactive game to identify corruption.
The reports appears on a website where not only the evidences but the visualized data of the Global Corruption Barometer is available.
Corruption is one of the most important issue around the world and effects everyone. We cannot accept silence and we need to encourage more and more people to stand up and report corruption. The mobile technology gives us the opportunity to reach millions of people and also provide the necessary protection to them so their identity will not be disclosed. The network of Transparency International is a unique platform so we can reach people around the world through their local activists.
However there are several legal aid services operated by TI but they are using separate online reporting systems. So we connected the chapters through this software and were able to found the link between reporting systems and the legal aid service of TI. And this complex framework can make this development a signficiant step in the global fight aganist corruption.
We finished the prototype and implemented the most important functionality and peripheral user stories as well.
The protototype will be introduced to the movement of Transparency International at the General Assembly Meeting which will be followed by several other events.TI would like to form a working group out of the developers and make further developments, like ios apps, multilangual platforms etc. TI will consider to launch a specific global campaign to reach more and more people with this tool.
