One global movement sharing one vision: a world in which government, business, civil society and the daily lives of people are free of corruption.
In 1993, a few individuals decided to take a stance against corruption and created Transparency International. Now present in more than 100 countries, the movement works relentlessly to stir the world’s collective conscience and bring about change. Much remains to be done to stop corruption, but much has also been achieved, including:

The Land Portal is a Foundation registered in the Netherlands in 2014.
The vision of the Portal is to improve land governance to benefit those with the most insecure land rights and the greatest vulnerability to landlessness through information and knowledge sharing.
We are pleased to announce that the Land Portal Foundation, Mokoro Ltd and Transparency International will co-host an interactive webinar on sextortion in land governance and its implications. The webinar will feature an interactive discussion among expert panelists led by a facilitator, which will be followed by a question and answer session with webinar participants.
Sextortion is defined as the abuse of power to obtain a sexual benefit or advantage. Sextortion is a form of corruption in which sex, rather than money, is the currency of the bribe. Although laws often exist that could be used to prosecute and deter the abuse of power to obtain sex, few sextortion cases appear to be prosecuted outside the employment context.
Although some forms of sextortion have received more attention, such as in immigration proceedings and in education, there is relatively little information available on the relationship between sextortion and land governance. Nonetheless, there is evidence that it is a persistent problem that needs to be addressed. Consequently, this webinar aims to explore the topic, discuss key questions and recommend paths for dealing with this troubling phenomenon.
This webinar will explore the following questions:
- What does ‘sextortion’ mean and how is it relevant to land governance? Participants will hear about (and have the opportunity to share) concrete examples and experiences.
- What are the primary challenges to discussing and addressing sextortion?
- How can sextortion be tackled and what is needed to bring sextortion higher on the agenda of the land governance and anti-corruption communities?
