Peter van Veen looks back on 5 (and a half) years of the UK Bribery Act, covering business attitudes, SFO investigations, deferred prosecution agreements and bribery standards.

Robert Barrington outlines Transparency International’s stance on tax abuse after returning from the Annual Members Meeting (AMM) in Panama City, Panama.

In May of this year, the government announced that the UK would publish its first-ever Anti-Corruption Strategy before the year end – a commitment renewed by the government of Theresa May. Here Robert Barrington discusses how the Strategy needs to set out the government’s response and long-term vision in dealing with corruption and the risks of not having a strategy at all.

In a report published today, Professor Mark Knights shows how Britain’s history has shaped what we understand by the term ‘corruption’ as well what measures we see as being effective or necessary to curb it. ‘Corruption’ and ‘anti-corruption’ have not been (nor are they now) universal, timeless, context-less phenomena but should be seen as conditioned by the past.

Why did people vote for Trump? Why did they vote for Brexit? There are many reasons, but a particularly strong theme of the Trump campaign was that the political establishment in Washington is corrupt. Not inefficient, or self-interested, or in a Washington bubble: but out and out corrupt.

The violent reaction of the media and some political figures to the High Court ruling on Brexit seems to have taken the UK into the territory of institutional hatred – and yet leading politicians have been slow to condemn it. This matters a great deal, and Transparency International’s Robert Barrington explains why.

The UK Government made 21 commitments at the London Anti-Corruption Summit in May and Transparency International UK has been working to track the progress of these promises. With the Government’s own deadline to consult on making failure to prevent money laundering having now passed, Jameela Raymond explains why it’s not a promise that can afford to be broken.

Neill Stansbury is Co-founder and Director of GIACC, and Chair of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 37001 Project Committee. In this blog Neil discusses ISO 37001 and its intention to help an organisation implement effective anti-bribery management system in small, medium and large organisations located in the public, private and voluntary sectors.

Everywhere we turn the spectre of corruption haunts our world. This Halloween we take a look at the chilling reality of the ghosts of corruption. From soldiers, doctors mansions and companies – ghosts can be spookingly real.

The new government was very quiet over the summer about its policies. This was particularly notable on anti-corruption issues, given how much had been said in the previous twelve months – not least by the Home Office under Theresa May’s leadership. Here Robert Barrington and Duncan Hames assess the state of play – and where things may be heading.
