Integrity is moral wholeness - living consistently in moral wholeness.


Global integrity is living consistently in moral wholeness at all levels - individual, interpersonal, institutional, and international; across sectors and settings; local through global; the systemic and structural.” Global Integrity Day - 9 June


Corruption is moral rottenness, the opposite of integrity - the distortion, perversion, and deterioration of moral goodness, resulting in the abuse and exploitation of people and the planet. It is integroty.


Corruption is "the abuse of entrusted power for private gain." Transparency International


Corruption is "a system of abuse of entrusted power for private, collective, or political gain--often involving a complex, intertwined set of relationships, some obvious, others hidden, with established vested interests that can operate vertically within an institution or horizontally across political, economic, and social spheres of society and transnationally."

- Shaazka Beyerle, Curtailing Corruption - People Power for Accountability and Justice (2014, page 25)
