Leaving the EU will have profound consequences for the UK.  But will it be good or bad for the fight against corruption?  Robert Barrington looks at some of the possible consequences.

Another year, another Bilderberg conference done and dusted. Henry Kissinger has left the building. The limousines, bodyguards and snipers have left, the snazzy Airbus bubble-tent has been deflated, but some tricky questions remain. Questions, primarily, for the politicians who attended.

Corruption within the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors is a matter of life and death. It has a corrosive impact on health, negatively impacting public health budgets, the price of health services and medicines, and ultimately the quality of care dispensed. Reports estimate that as much as 6% of annual global health expenditure is lost to corruption

On Thursday of next week, at a luxury hotel in central Dresden, the doors of the annual Bilderberg policy conference will be flung open. Not to members of the press, mind.

We are now two weeks away from the Anti-Corruption Summit that the Prime Minister announced last July in Singapore. Will it be a success?

Last week, the government published the agreements it has just signed with the Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories for data sharing among law enforcement agencies. It’s not exactly the full transparency the Prime Minister has been pushing for. Is it therefore a step forward in a longer journey – or just a smokescreen to make lack of action look like something more impressive?

Transparency International’s Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Programme discusses the accusations against Boots of exploiting an NHS scheme to boost profits.

Robert Barrington expresses the views of Transparency International UK in regards to the Home Office launching its new Anti-Money Laundering Action Plan today: The Plan looks good – will it actually happen?
