Recruitment of Research Assistants


Recruitment of Research Assistants to generate data


Transparency International Uganda (TIU) is a national chapter of Transparency International – The global coalition against corruption. It is a registered Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) working to create change towards a Uganda free of corruption. Its jurisdiction is country wide and addresses all forms of corruption.

TI Uganda was founded in 1993 as a pressure group to bring together peoples’ voluntary initiatives to enhance accountability, transparency and integrity among all Ugandans. The organization has since grown from a mere pressure group whose membership was largely composed of lawyers and eminent Ugandans to an autonomous NGO registered with the Uganda NGO board.

This year (2019), TIU received funding from Democratic Governance Faculty (DGF). The project is intended to empower citizens to make their leaders more accountable in effective management of public and natural resources in order to ensure improved service delivery and natural resource governance
