  • Date: Tuesday, 12 March 2013
  • Location: Norton Rose Fulbright, 3 More London Riverside, SE1 2AQ, London, United Kingdom

Corruption is not just a problem in developing countries, but a phenomenon which leaves no region untouched, including the UK.

Date & Time: 12th March 2013, 18:00-20:15

Location: Norton Rose, 3 More London Riverside, SE1 2AQ, London, United Kingdom


Corruption is not just a problem in developing countries, but a phenomenon which leaves no region untouched, including the UK. How does it manifest itself in different settings, and why is it so damaging? How does culture play its part? Can an individual escape endemic corruption in the culture within which she/he lives? NB: The Attendee list for this event is now full. We have opened a waiting list and will notify those registered should spaces become available.

Poverty. Inequality. Broken Public services. Politicians who serve themselves. Business owners who abuse their power. From India to Athens, from Occupy Wall Street to the Arab Spring – all over the world people are taking to the streets. Whilst their grievances are particular to each country, there remains a common thread throughout – Corruption.

Corruption is not just a problem in developing countries, but a phenomenon which leaves no region untouched, including the UK.

How does it manifest itself in different settings and why is it so damaging? How does culture play its part? Can an individual escape endemic corruption in the culture within which she/he lives?

A distinguished panel will draw on their own experiences of encountering corruption and discuss these issues with each other and the audience, who will be given the opportunity to present questions to the panellists. The discussion will be followed by a drinks reception.

The panellists are:
Laurence Cockcroft is a development economist who has worked for governments, international organizations, and private- and public-sector entities. He is a founding member of Transparency International and was formerly chairman of its UK chapter. He is the author of ‘Global Corruption: Money, Power, and Ethics in the Modern World’.
Professor Alena Ledeneva is Professor of Politics and Society at UCL, and the author of ‘How Russia Really Works’ and her upcoming book ‘Can Russia Modernise?: Sistema, Power Networks and Informal Governance’
