Transparency describes the openness of institutions—the degree to which outsiders such as citizens or stockholders can monitor and evaluate the actions of insiders, such as government officials or corporate managers. Achieving the appropriate transparency balance is a vital part of confronting both the familiar problems of development and new challenges of globalization, from the local level to the global level of governance. IPD’s Transparency Task Force brings together scholars and activists from all regions who are working to improve global understanding of what transparency can accomplish and how it can be increased.
