A new research grouping, the Integrity Research Group (IRG), has been established in the Kingston Law School.
The primary aims of the IRG are to positively impact on the policies and activity of businesses, government and public bodies both in the UK and worldwide through promoting integrity, corporate governance, corporate social responsibility and other ethical values, such as participation, transparency, proper management and accountability.
The IRG has been convened by Dr Lorenzo Pasculli of the Kingston Law School whose research focuses on the prevention of global forms of criminality, such as corruption and organised crime. His experience in this area led him to identify a need for a focal point for exploration and engagement in London. It was in collaboration with Dr Gauri Sinha, also of Kingston Law School, that the foundation for the group was set. Gauri is an expert in corporate compliance, financial sanctions, anti-money laundering and financial crime.
The interdisciplinary research group has already attracted interest from academics across the University. It also welcomes external or guest members from other universities or research institutions and beyond. The multidisciplinary nature and international reach of the group contributes to its potential to initiate some important projects in this significant and topical area.
The inaugural symposium of the IRG will be held this Friday, 23 September 2016 at the Kingston Hill campus.
More information about the group can be found on the IRG webpage.
