The Government Transparency Institute (GTI) is a non-partisan think tank researching and advocating good governance. The Institute was founded in Budapest in 2015 to provide an independent, research-driven voice to the causes of transparency, anti-corruption, and good-governance in Europe and beyond.

The aim of the Institute is to better understand the causes, characteristics, and consequences of low-quality governance with interdisciplinary analysis, drawing on political science, economics, law, and data science. GTI helps citizens and companies hold their governments accountable through the publication of novel datasets and robust analyses.

Since September 2019, GTI has offset the unavoidable emissions of its business travel through WLT’s Carbon Balanced programme.
