Case Studies

Corruption talks

Recent events such as the phone hacking controversy, and allegations of police misconduct in the Cardiff docklands murder case have highlighted the fact that Wales, and the rest of the UK, are not immune to corruption.

Transparency International UK recently published a report which claimed that corruption is a much greater problem in the UK than recognised and that the inadequate response has led to its growing threat.

TI-UK is hosting an event in Cardiff on March 12, to present the findings of the report and discuss what can be done to tackle corruption in Wales and beyond. Speakers are Michael Macaulay, Professor of Public Management at Teesside University.  He has conducted research and consultancy for a number of agencies including Standards for England and Transparency International. Professor Michael Levi is Professor of Criminology at Cardiff University and sat on the advisory board for the research. Chandu Krishnan, Executive Director of Transparency International UK, will chair the event. Similar events are running at Teesside University Business School on April 18 and Macdonald Holyrood Hotel, Edinburgh on May 2 and at Ernst & Young at 100 Barbirolli Square in Manchester on May 15.
