Dr Lorenzo Pasculli: The Impact of Brexit on Integrity and Corruption: Local and Global Challenges

Date: 14 February 2018
Venue: Room 5X104 - Frenchay Campus
Time: 14:00-16:00


Dr Lorenzo Pasculli, Senior Lecturer at Kingston University London, will discuss the consequences of Brexit on political integrity, financial and business integrity and systemic social integrity on the one hand and on anti-corruption legislation and policies both in the UK and internationally on the other.

There is a considerable discussion on the effects of Brexit on business and politics in general. But what are the challenges that Brexit poses for integrity and corruption? This guest talk will analyse the possible consequences that leaving the EU might have on corruption, on the one hand, and on anti-corruption regulations and policies both in the UK and around the world. As for the former issue, the analysis will concern, in particular, the effects of Brexit on political integrity, financial and business integrity and systemic social integrity. As for the effects on anti-corruption, the analysis will consider the effects of Brexit on the UK's exemplary position as global anti-corruption champion, on the use of financial sanctions to fight grand corruption and on lawmaking, with a particular focus on the criminogenic effects of post-Brexit legislation.
