Senior lecturer in Politics

Dr Liz David-Barrett is senior lecturer in Politics at the University of Sussex and deputy director of the Sussex Centre for the Study of Corruption (SCSC).

Her academic work focuses on the interface between government and business, with particular interests in (i) corruption in government contracting, in developed and developing-country contexts; (ii) the challenges for international business and international development agencies of operating in high corruption-risk environments and complying with anti-bribery laws; (iii) how social norms influence behaviour in corruption-prone settings.

Liz engages widely with practitioners in government, the private sector and NGOs, and recently advised the UK Department for International Development on its international anti-corruption strategy and the UK Cabinet Office on the 2017-22 UK Anti-Corruption Strategy.
