The three principles of international humanitarian action have long been held to be neutrality, impartiality and independence and Transparency International comes under the purview of these principles of humanitarian action.
There have been major criticisms levelled at the 2010 National Corruption Survey by Transparency International Pakistan (TIP) in the media, for example that the report has an unfair bias and targets the PPP government unfairly.
Imran Khan for one in The News (June 9), questions the sampling of TIP saying, “The 2009 survey differs from the other two when it comes to the provincial sample size. In 2002 and 2005, the sample size for each province was somewhat reflective of its overall population proportion in Pakistan. But in 2009, each province had the same sample size, 1,300.”
