COVID-19 has been unprecedented, throwing the world into disarray and having a profound toll on millions through the direct loss of life, rising unemployment and increased instability. Nonetheless, lurking beneath the headlines this pandemic has fertilised opportunities for corruption, whether it be in public procurement, the abuse of human life or the exploiting of opportunities that have directly arisen from the pandemic for personal gain.

On International Anti-Corruption Day (9th December), Transparency International UK will be hosting a panel event that will bring a broad global perspective on the impact this pandemic has had on health, stability and accountability in different contexts and the corruption challenges that have manifest.

Sign up via Eventbrite.

 

 

Date: International Anti-Corruption Day - Wednesday 9 December 2020

Time: 18:00 - 19:00 GMT

COVID-19 has created a challenging environment for all and without our donors, the work that Transparency International UK does in the fight against corruption would not be possible. Now - more than ever - we need your support and therefore a suggested donation of £5 is requested for attending this event (although any amount below or above this will be accepted). Thank you for your understanding.

The Annual Lecture - which usually happens on this day - has been postponed to March 2021.
