These effects, including poverty and inequality, hit the most vulnerable people hardest. The UK’s leading anti-corruption organisations last week launched a manifesto of 10 actions for the UK to

From suspicious spending splurges to London kleptocracy bus tours, the UK’s dirty money problem has caught the public eye in recent years. Much of this attention has focussed on the palatial properties and outrageous opulence enjoyed by those who have abused the power entrusted in them by their people for personal profit. However, those responsible

I’m delighted to be launching Transparency International UK’s new report, At Your Service, which shines a light on the role played by UK services in some of the biggest corruption cases of our time. From Argentina to Azerbaijan, businesses from Britain and its offshore financial centres have played a key role in over 400 corruption cases
