Spotlight on Corruption works to end corruption within the UK and wherever the UK has influence 

  • We track how the UK enforces its anti-corruption laws

  • We research ways in which they can be improved

  • We investigate cases where anti-corruption laws have been broken

  • We hold the government and enforcement bodies to account for ensuring anti-corruption laws work properly
