For Your Diary

Written by Jameela Raymond on Thursday, 3 September 2015

Transparency International UK has several event coming up from September ranging from documentary screenings to panel discussions.



It’s been a busy year for our team at Transparency International UK – we started the year launching our Lifting the Lid on Lobbying paper in Parliament and our Corruption on Your Doorstep report has made waves through the media since its launch alongside our Unmask the Corrupt Campaign, in March.  We launched the second iteration of our Defence Companies Anti-Corruption Index and have been lucky enough to have events with the public speaking directly to Cabinet Officials about the UK’s plans for fighting corruption.

But the next few months are going to be even more jam-packed than the last, and we want you to be involved.

Over September and October 2015 we will be having 5 events. Please see below for details, and remember to check back at www.transparency.org.uk/events for updated information.

Lifting the Lid on Lobbying: Regional Events – 23–30 September

TI-UK’s publication Lifting the Lid on Lobbying was released in February and focused on lobbing risk and regulation in the UK’s devolved institutions.

On September 23rd  and 30th  TI-UK will be in Edinburgh and Cardiff respectively to hold panel discussions on our policy paper that has built upon the

The report’s findings indicate that there is much to be done in order to tackle the risks to our institutions, not least the ability of lobbyists to conceal their interests and activity, the role of ‘big money’ in political donations, the ‘revolving door’ between public and private sectors, and the role of external and unaccountable expertise brought in to inform government policy. 

Details on the event in Edinburgh can be found here

How should the UK Government tackle corruption? – 1 October

TI-UK is bringing together civil society organisations and individuals to discuss the Government’s plans for tackling corruption with newly-appointed UK Anti-Corruption Champion, Sir Eric Pickles MP.

The purpose of the event is to hear directly from the Government about its upcoming anti-corruption agenda, and hear from civil society their recommendations to the Government ahead of the International Anti-Corruption Summit. We hope to have a fruitful discussion about how the Government should best tackle international corruption, UK corruption and the UK’s role in corruption overseas.

Save the Date: Corrupt Capital Report Launch

Finally, on October 27th, TI-UK will be hosting a panel event to discuss the follow up report to Corruption on Your Doorstep: How Corrupt Capital is used to But Property in the UK which analysed how the UK property market makes a house a home for the cash of the global corrupt.

The new report will look at how such Corrupt Capital is laundered through the UK, facilitated by financial services, legal services and accountants, and settling in luxury goods markets, art, antiques and auction houses, and private and higher corruption-resources-corruption-resources-education services.

Details TBC. Check here for updates

From Russia with Cash: Documentary Screening – 3 November 

From Russia With Cash shows an undercover journalist posing as a Russian government minister ‘Boris’, to investigate increasing evidence that London’s property boom is being partly fuelled by overseas buyers laundering money.

The investigative documentary, originally aired on Channel 4, highlights how money laundering through London’s property market is facilitated and encouraged, time and time again.

This event, a screening of the documentary on November 3 will take place in Portcullis House 3-5 in the Houses of Parliament accompanied by a panel discussion including TI-UK’s Executive Director Robert Barrington, Senior Campaigner from Global Witness Chido Dunn, Managing Director of the National Association for Estate Agents Mark Hayward, and Roman Borisovich who plays “Boris” in the documentary.
