Opportunities for UK government leadership to tackle corruption in 2013

A paper on the opportunities for the UK to tackle corruption in 2013, as chair of the 39th G8 summit

2012 Available in English

Corruption cripples society, especially those living in poverty. It does this in three main ways:

  • It reduces the quality of essential public services.
  • It prevents resources from reaching their intended destination.
  • It undermines trust as people are excluded from participating in political processes.

In 2013, the UK has an opportunity to contribute significantly to the fight against corruption through its role as chair of the G8, co-chair of the Open Government Partnership (OGP), and chair of the High-Level Panel on post-Millennium Development Goals.

This paper was assembled to highlight possible areas of tackling corruption in 2013 through robust UK and international action.
