Recent events such as the phone hacking controversy, MPs expenses scandal, and allegations of fraud in Edinburgh City Council have highlighted the fact that Scotland, and the rest of the UK, is not immune to corruption. TI-UK will present the findings of our recent report on UK corruption and encourage discussion over whether more research is needed on corruption in Scotland.

Recent events such as the phone hacking controversy, MPs expenses scandal, and allegations of fraud in Edinburgh City Council have highlighted the fact that Scotland, and the rest of the UK, is not immune to corruption.

Transparency International UK recently published a report which examined the level of corruption in 23 sectors and institutions.
TI-UK is hosting this event in Edinburgh to present the findings of the report and discuss what can be done to tackle corruption in Scotland and beyond. The evening will consist of a drinks reception, presentation, and Q&A discussion.
