Spotlight on Corruption is a UK based charity working to end corruption in the UK and wherever the UK has influence. We track how the UK enforces its anti-corruption laws, research the ways in which they can be improved, investigate cases where anti-corruption laws have been broken and hold the government and enforcement agencies to account for ensuring anti-corruption laws work properly. We do this by a mix of monitoring the UK courts and enforcement agencies, conducting indepth research and exploring strategic litigation.



Dr Susan Hawley is an anti-corruption specialist who has worked on anti-corruption issues in the UK for nearly two decades. She has expertise in policy and research in UK anti-corruption enforcement. Previously she was a founder and Policy Director of Corruption Watch UK, where she led the work on monitoring court trials, tracking UK enforcement and pushing for greater court transparency.
