A world where governments, the armed forces, and arms transfers are transparent, accountable, and free from corruption.
We strive for a world with open governments served by transparent defence institutions that are accountable to ordinary people and whose primary purpose is the protection of all citizens.
The defence industry supporting these institutions should provide capability based on clear national defence strategies in a fair and open market, and be held to account through effective and independent oversight mechanisms rooted in functioning civil societies and efficient government procurement.
Our principal purpose in pursuit of this vision is to improve transparency and reduce the levels of corruption in defence and security ministries, in armed forces, and in defence companies.
