TINZ and UNA NZ sign affiliation agreement

The United Nations Association of New Zealand (UNA NZ) and Transparency International New Zealand (TINZ) and have made an agreement to fully affiliate and co-operate with each other.

UNA NZ president Peter Nichols and TINZ chair Suzanne Snively signed the affiliation agreement at a meeting of TINZ's Board in Wellington on Monday 23 July 2018.

Both organisations have common interests in promoting ethics in government and business, and advocating for effective integrity systems to maintain trust and confidence in New Zealand. This affiliation relationship can contribute greatly to the success of maintaining high standards of ethics, of being vigilant about the enforcement of anti-corruption measures and of being able to demonstrate how training and leadership can make a difference.

A key opportunity is the facilitation of connections to communicate and network across all of the members of both organisations, which will enhance the capacity of both organisations to promote knowledge about ways to prevent corruption and build strong integrity systems.

UNA NZ is the people's movement for the United Nations in New Zealand. UNA NZ promotes the understanding and education about and engagement with it. The UN, brings all cultures and peoples together to address global issues such as world peace, poverty, human rights, and justice. UNA NZ is a national community volunteer organisation and a registered charity, made up of regional branches, a youth association, and affiliates across New Zealand. Nationally UNA's activities include forums with visiting UN notaries and panel discussions with experts around New Zealand.



TINZ's vision is a world of systems that can be trusted, in which government, politics, business, civil society and the daily lives of people are free of corruption. TINZ believes that good governance, robust integrity systems and transparency are the best ways to stop corruption. TINZ believes that a fairer, safer and more sustainable world can be achieved only with the elimination of corruption.
