TI’s chapters currently operate more than 60 Advocacy and Legal Advice Centres (ALACs) in more than 45 different countries. The centres provide legal advice and assistance to victims and witnesses of corruption, helping citizens pursue corruption-related complaints and encouraging them to come forward. By using information gained from cases (either individual cases or common themes running through a variety of cases), the centres are then able to advocate for systemic reform based on concrete evidence.
