Can British politics be ‘sleaze-free’?

About the Event

How do we ensure that politicians use their power for the right purposes? Since the ‘cash for questions’ scandal in the UK in the 1990s, a system to maintain standards in public life was established. Yet, this has been recently put under particular strain, with several politicians having seemed to breach these standards, bringing their integrity into question. Is the existing standards system fit for purpose? Is there a cultural problem in British national politics? And what is the sustainable alternative?

Join us on Thursday 17 March 2022 to explore how we can tackle these issues with Professor Elizabeth David-Barrett, Professor of Governance and Integrity at the University of Sussex.
