    CIJ/LSE/Polis seminars in Investigative Journalism and Law‚ LSE, CLM 302, Clement House, Aldwych

    This event will look at how dictators and corrupt politicians use the global financial system to loot government coffers, accept bribes and spend the proceeds of corruption on a life of luxury. Robert Palmer and Anthea Lawson will work through a number of Global Witness case studies – including the recent revelation of which banks held Libyan state funds – explaining the role of the financial sector in facilitating corruption and how to uncover it.
