Poverty. Inequality. Broken Public services. Politicians who serve themselves. Business owners who abuse their power. From India to Athens, from Occupy Wall Street to the Arab Spring – all over the world people are taking to the streets. Whilst their grievances are particular to each country, there remains a common thread throughout - Corruption.
Corruption is not just a problem in developing countries, but a phenomenon which leaves no region untouched, including the UK.
How does it manifest itself in different settings, and why is it so damaging? How does culture play its part? Can an individual escape endemic corruption in the culture within which she/he lives?
A distinguished panel will draw on their own experiences of encountering corruption and discuss these issues with each other and the audience, who will be given the opportunity to present questions to the panellists. The discussion will be followed by a drinks reception.
The panellists are:

|Our Defence Indices in the IACC||
Thursday, 8th November 2012
Ulysses Guimarães Convention Center
Indexes play a crucial role in the fight against corruption, as credible evidence on identifying corruption risks are essential in providing a road map of which strategies are most effective in mitigating these risks.
This workshop within the International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) addresses the theme of “Defining Our Future: Collectively Shaping the Global Governance Agenda” as it seeks to encourage discussion around recent local and sector-specific indexes that we consider very valuable tools in the field.
Our director Mark Pyman will be part of the panel and will explain our programme's approach towards the Defence Companies Anti-Corruption Index that we released in October and the upcoming Governments Defence Anti-Corruption Index to be launched in January.
You can follow a live stream of the session here.

|Rob Wright and Tobias Bock participate in UN Arms Trade Treaty Conference (ATT)||
Monday, 23rd July 2012
Transparency International's Defence and Security Programme (TI DSP) continues its efforts to push for a strong anti-corruption mechanism in a robust UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). Our senior expert Rob Wright and project officer Tobias Bock have been in New York since the beginning of the ATT Conference to encourage diplomats and ministers from around the world to negotiate a robust Arms Trade Treaty.
TI DSP works with civil society (Oxfam, Saferworld, the Arias Foundation, and many others), governments, and the defence industry to illustrate the benefits of addressing corruption risks at all stages of an arms transfer and to demonstrate options as to how anti-corruption provisions can best be practically implemented.

|Alan Waldron and Tobias Bock will take part in a conference on the Arms Trade Treaty||
Thursday, 19th April 2012
Jalan SS12/1, Subang Jaya
Grand Dorsett Subang
Our senior advisor Air Commodore Alan Waldron, together with our ATT project officer Tobias Bock will take part in the conference “The United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) – Tackling Corruption, Saving lives” organised by Transparency International (TI) Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur on 19 April. They will highlight the importance of strong anti-corruption mechanisms for a robust ATT and discuss all the other elements that would be needed for a bulletproof ATT.
This half-day conference will focus on the implications of the ATT process for Malaysia and the ASEAN region. TI Malaysia is inviting representatives from the relevant Malaysian government departments, the Parliament of Malaysia, the defence industry, academia, the media, the embassies and high commissions in Kuala Lumpur, and civil society.
The government of Malaysia (as well as the governments of Indonesia and Singapore) have been rather sceptical of including anti-corruption in an ATT. TI Malaysia have already challenged this position in op-eds etc., and one key focus of the seminar is to get civil society to lobby for a robust ATT, including strong anti-corruption measures, in the run-up to the July negotiations.
