Over the past two decades anti-corruption measures have become a standard part of most policy documents, and funding for anti-corruption activism has increased exponentially. The growth of anti-corruptionism has resulted in an interconnected and globalised anti-corruption industry, whose members share ideas about corruption, and convert some of these ideas into programmes, funding opportunities and policies. The chapter argues that international concepts about corruption have been woven into the fabric of both organisations. It first examines the rise of the international anti-corruption industry and provides a background on the arrival of international anti-corruption organisations in PNG. The chapter then introduces TI PNG. After providing a background on this international NGO it examines the organisation's official and unofficial narratives about corruption. The chapter examines the 'on-stage' (official) and 'off-stage' (unofficial) communications around corruption. It discusses what these findings mean for understanding the nature of anti-corruption efforts in PNG.
