Working to End Corruption

Spotlight on Corruption shines a light on the UK’s role in corruption at home and abroad.

We want to see a society with strong, transparent and accountable institutions which ensure corruption is not tolerated and democracy flourishes both in the UK and globally.

To achieve this we highlight corruption and the harm it causes, and campaign to improve the UK’s legal systems and enforcement of the law.

We do this by:

  • Undertaking detailed, evidence-based and impactful research on how the UK implements its anti-corruption laws and international commitments
  • Monitoring, analysing and sharing information about how the UK courts deal with corruption cases through our unique court monitoring programme
  • Communicating our findings to key audiences – including policymakers, MPs, civil servants, NGOs and the public – in order to influence how decisions are made and be a spearhead for reform.
