Corruption and Standard in British Politics: The launch of The Many Lives of Corruption: The reform of public life in modern Britain c. 1750-1950 edited by Ian Cawood & Tom Crook

Confirmed Speakers include:

  • John Penrose MP (United Kingdom Anti-Corruption Champion at the Home Office 2017-2022)
  • Prof Mark Knights (University of Warwick, Specialist in the history of corruption in Early Modern Britain)
     

How has corruption shaped - and undermined - the history of public life in modern Britain? We take a new collection of essays edited by Ian Cawood and Tom Crook as the starting point for an examination of this question. It will consider two and a half centuries of history, from the first assaults on Old Corruption and aristocratic privilege during the late eighteenth century through to the corruption scandals that blighted the worlds of Westminster and municipal government during the twentieth century. And it will reflect on the emergence of the concept of standards of governance in modern Britain and identify potential parallels between the challenges of the era which the book covers and those facing UK politics today.
