The Foundation's TrustLaw news service is a hub of information on anti-corruption and transparency issues worldwide.

Our correspondents identify trends in combating corruption through critical analysis of what works and what doesn’t. We examine the dynamics of change for embedding the rule of law and squeezing out sleaze.

With funding from General Electric, we appointed a senior correspondent to lead our global anti-corruption coverage with a particular focus on countries in transition, including those of the Arab Spring.

Among other big stories, we shone a spotlight on corruption in newly opened Myanmar and on graft in Brazil, where we held a high-level conference in Brasilia aimed at preparing businesses for new anti-bribery legislation. Attendees included anti-corruption lawyers, corporate compliance officers, government and central bank officials and NGOs.

We built up our network of expert bloggers, with regular contributions from authorities in the anti-corruption world including Transparency International, Global Witness and Global Financial Integrity.

Meanwhile, Thomson Reuters Foundation CEO Monique Villa was named the world’s 43rd most influential person in business ethics by think tank Ethisphere, an accolade that reflects the Foundation's deep commitment to transparency and accountability.

Thomson Reuters Foundation has been an influential global organization helping promote transparency in the governance of developing countries, fighting for women’s rights around the world, and promoting anti-corruption tools and measures in the countries that need them most.
