Inaugural meeting between Civil Society and the UK Government’s Anti-Corruption Champion
Impact Hub Westminster,
Thursday 1 October
18.00 – 20.00
The current UK Government has recognised the damaging nature of corruption, and put it at the top of its agenda of problems to stamp out. Earlier this year, Prime Minister David Cameron gave a speech in Singapore in which he vowed to take a stand against corruption, at home and abroad, and announced that London would host an International Anti-Corruption Summit in 2016.
In light of this announcement, Transparency International UK (TI-UK) is bringing together civil society organisations and individuals to discuss the Government’s plans for tackling corruption with newly-appointed UK Anti-Corruption Champion, Sir Eric Pickles MP.
The purpose of this event is to hear directly from the Government about its upcoming anti-corruption agenda, and hear from civil society their recommendations to the Government ahead of the International Anti-Corruption Summit. We hope to have a fruitful discussion about how the Government should best tackle international corruption, UK corruption and the UK’s role in corruption overseas.
