Anti-Corruption Scorecard

This Anti-Corruption Scorecard gives the Coalition Government a mid-term ‘corruption corruption-resources-corruption-resources-health-check’, drawing on Transparency International’s research. The assessment will be repeated in future years and used as a basis of analysing the Government’s commitments to an anti-corruption agenda and the major parties manifesto commitments before the next general election.

The Anti-Corruption Scorecard shows that while corruption is not endemic in the UK, there are significant problems in those areas that need to be understood and acted upon:

  • Dismantling of key institutional defences against corruption;
  • Reluctance to address failures in parliamentary ethics;
  • Absence of government coordination on its anti-corruption activity;
  • The UK as a major destination for corrupt financial flows.

The UK, however, has a generally good record in its international initiatives, scoring all of its 6 green lights in this area.

Of the 26 categories of UK life assessed by Transparency International UK:

  • 6 categories are rated as red;
  • 14 categories are rated as amber;
  • 6 categories are rated as green
