The UK Appoints New Anti-Corruption Unit: A Look at the Global Ramifications
Authors: James Campbell, Nancy A. Fischer, Steven P. Farmer, Matthew Oresman, Aaron R. Hutman

Given London’s role in international business and finance, the UK Bribery Act 2010 promised to form a potential strong counterpart to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Now, the UK government is taking steps which could bring expanded enforcement punch in developing countries. The International Corruption Unit (“ICU”) is being established under the umbrella of the UK National Crime Agency, and it is being tasked to investigate the bribery of foreign officials and money laundering by corrupt foreign officials and their associates. This latest development follows the trend of new anti-corruption initiatives and enforcement efforts in multiple jurisdictions around the world, and may help enhance that trend, considering how foreign investigations often coordinate with and piggyback on UK and U.S. efforts.

Authors: David A. Livdahl, Jenny (Jia) Sheng, Chunbin Xu

China’s current leadership has attached significant attention to network security, which is deemed to be a core aspect of national security. In early 2014, China’s President, Xi Jinping, who is also the head of the Office for the Central Leading Group for Cyberspace Affairs, stated that “network security and informatization are key strategic issues related to national security and development,” and “No cyber safety means no national security.” On July 1, 2015, the National Security Law of the People’s Republic of China came into effect. Immediately after the National Security Law became effective, on July 6, 2015, a draft Network Security Law (Draft Cybersecurity Law) was released by the standing committee of China’s National People’s Congress (NPC) for public comments.
