Does the UK have a corruption problem?

  • Brighton Dome Studio Theatre New Road Brighton, BN1 United Kingdom

Interpreted by Sue MacLaine and Mark Schofield

UK scandals have ranged from multi-billion pound arms deals such as the Al Yamamh case in 2007 to the 2008 parliamentary expenses episode. Has the UK sleep-walked in to a situation where corrupt practices are much more prevalent than many realise? If so, what can and should be done about it? Is the UK government up to the task of tackling corruption, or is it in many ways complicit in its development? Join the conversation at our regular panel debate.

Panel to include Sir Eric Pickles (the government's anti-corruption champion), Robert Barrington (Executive Director of Transparency International UK, Dr Liz David Barrett (Sussex Centre for Study of Corruption) and Professor Dan Hough (Chair, Sussex Centre for Study of Corruption.)
