“When we started the research, we did not think it would become this big” confesses Isam haj Hussein.

In 2011, TI-DSP was approached by a group of civil society organisations in Croatia to work on a project called "public interest- not for sale".

So far this year they have organised two workshops on the topic, and have sent a secondee to our offices to learn about defence corruption.
