Alison Matthews

Programme Lead, Advocacy and Legal Advice Centers (ALACs), Transparency International Secretariat
As Transparency International’s Global Programme Lead for Advocacy and Legal Advice Centres (ALACs), I coordinate the global ALAC network (across 64 countries), provide strategic and operational support and advice to ALACs, and develop knowledge products and tools. I also contribute towards global and regional advocacy in areas where ALACs have unique knowledge and expertise, such as in sexual corruption and public service delivery. I have detailed knowledge of development programming and policy processes through my work at Transparency International and with the Australian Aid Program, where I have held global, regional and bilateral program management, policy development and advocacy roles. I previously worked with a number of civil society organisations, including in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Thailand, Costa Rica and Australia, and as a corporate lawyer at Allens Linklaters.
