This submission is a summary of indicative findings from a research project funded by the British Academy/Leverhulme Trust between October 2016 and September 2018. For the purposes of the work of the committee, this research is less about the provisions of the UK Bribery Act 2010 (UKBA) than about its implementation by UK police forces within the domestic jurisdiction.
The research has completed its quantitative review but the analysis and the qualitative research continues. While the research findings will be unlikely to be finalised by the time the committee has finished its deliberations, the team would be pleased to discuss its emerging findings with the committee if that may facilitate its work. Below we provide an overview of the project before addressing specific issues related to the questions listed in the call for evidence.
