About us

About us

The immense financial and social impacts of corporate corruption is driving greater scrutiny on the laws which govern global financial markets and an increasing demand for robust and comprehensive governance to police this industry.

The Centre for Financial and Corporate Integrity (CFCI) aims to create an awareness and understanding of the complex interrelationships between economics, finance, accounting and law that, together, play a crucial role in informing transformative issues and events facing global corporations, such as corporate scandals, global financial crises, economic instability and inequality in welfare allocation.

Through research, our centre has the tall, but important ambition of inciting integrity and ethos in modern business.

Core Themes

Our research is focussed within three core themes which informed our research clusters; Law, Risk and Compliance (LRC), Finance and Governance (FG) and Applied Economic Analysis and Policy (AEAP).

The aim of all our research clusters is to create awareness and understanding of those issues to a wider audience including local businesses, multi-national corporations and other relevant stakeholders.
