The Justice Initiative works to combat high-level, transnational corruption, which drains resources from developing countries and fuels repression and violence.  

We support a broad, global effort by Open Society to combat corruption in all its forms, with our legal efforts aimed largely at challenging international networks of corruption.

We seek to break through the complex financial and legal structures used to conceal corrupt money flows, seeking prosecutions and the effective return of corruptly acquired assets. We also seek new approaches that expand the reach of the law, such as holding corporate actors accountable for the war crime of pillage, or using human rights law to challenge corruption’s impact on economic, social, and political rights.
