Bribery: What is needed for the UK Bribery Act to be effective?

A paper outlining the steps needed to avoid bribery both in the UK and abroad

2012 Available in English

Bribery has devastating effects on the world’s poorest and most vulnerable communities.

The UK Bribery Act is a landmark piece of legislation. When applied and enforced, it could be a major step forward in ensuring that UK companies do not participate in or facilitate bribery, both at home and abroad. However, the law is currently not being enforced due to a lack of resources, which leads to poor quality public services and an undermining of the rule of law.

This paper outlines the steps needed to ensure the UK Bribery Act is effective at tackling bribery.
