11 May 2016
The UCL Centre for Ethics and Law (‘CEL’) is delighted to endorse and release the following statement in support of the London Anti-corruption Summit by leading professional services organisations, reflecting their commitment to tackling corruption in the global economy.
The CEL shares this commitment and is releasing the statement as part of its work on the relationships between ethics and the professions, law and business. In addition to leading research in the international and interrelated fields of Business, Regulation and Ethics, CEL is committed to furthering global understanding and awareness of anti-corruption responsibilities, corporate governance and compliance. The CEL looks forward to working with these professional services organisations in their ongoing efforts.
Professor Richard Moorhead, Director of the UCL Centre for Ethics and Law, said: “Corruption is a global problem that Society rightly demands is tackled much more effectively. We are encouraged by the initiative signalled by the signatories to this statement and Government commitment to this area. That such an initiative envisages working across professional boundaries and jurisdictions is particularly important.”
