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.

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.

Following Wells Fargo’s agreement to pay US$185 million in settlements to US regulators over admissions that, in order to meet sales targets, employees of the bank had created around two million unauthorised customer accounts and credit card applications since 2011, TI-UK looks at incentives and hoe they can lead to corrupt and unethical behaviour.

The Telegraph’s exposé of Sam Allardyce and investigations into accusations of corruption against eight current and former Premier League managers plus Barnsley assistant head coach Tommy Wright have received widespread coverage. What do they tell us about the state of English football?

When public contracts are won by companies with hidden owners or with links to anonymous companies, public money can be wasted and services weakened. The individuals behind these secret companies have been found to overcharge, siphon off and steal amounts equivalent of a national education budget – all for personal profit.
