Event description

Description

Most countries are failing to deal with corruption which is leading to a “crisis of democracy around the world”. That is the damning indictment from this year’s authoritative Corruption Perceptions Index by Transparency International.

The index shows European states such as Hungary have seen a marked deterioration in their score over the past 5 years and now have their lowest score for political rights since the fall of communism in 1989.

On the evening of Tuesday 9 July at the Palace of Westminster, the Fabian IPG is hosting a special panel debate, which will seek to shed light on the fight against corruption through regional comparisons and stories of best practice. It will also be solutions focused, and explore how progressive political forces and policymakers should respond.

We have a terrific line up of leading political campaigners and experts, which includes:


  • Dr Elizabeth David-Barrett, Director of the Centre for the Study of Corruption, University of Sussex
  • Dr Jozsef Peter Martin, Executive Director of Transparency International Hungary, Seconded Research Director at TI UK
  • Maria Vinciguerra, Dept of Politics, University of Cambridge
  • Mary Fitzgerald, Editor in Chief, Open Democracy
  • Stephen Kinnock MP

We very much hope to see you there!
