Date & Time: Wednesday, 11th December 2013, 14:15-17:15
Location: Clifford Chance, 10 Upper Bank Street, London, United Kingdom
For those in a developing country who cannot access corruption-resources-corruption-resources-health care, corruption-resources-corruption-resources-education or even food and water without paying bribes, corruption is a daily problem. It is well-known that corruption arrests economic development and it often remains entrenched because a rich and corrupt elite has a strong self-interest in retaining power.
Although corruption is not endemic in the UK, there are significant problems which need to be addressed. Transparency International UK (TI-UK)’s recent Corruption in the UK report highlighted corruption vulnerabilities in some of Britain’s key sectors and institutions. Scandals involving issues such as lobbying phone hacking and money laundering have further highlighted the existence of the problem and the urgent need to address it as public trust in government is rapidly eroding.
