The Centre for the Study of Corruption is delighted to announce that Jack Silverman has won the Macfarlanes Prize for the Best Dissertation on the MA Corruption & Governance 2018-19.

Jack’s dissertation tackled the under-researched topic of corruption risks in UK prisons, analysing how prison managerial structures affect the risks, as well as evaluating government action on the pressing issue of staff smuggling contraband into the prison estate.

Upon completing his MA, Jack took up a role in the Cabinet Office Centre of Counter Fraud Expertise. He works within the Government Counter Fraud Profession team, whose key role is to enhance counter fraud capability within the public sector through setting consistent counter fraud standards across Government.

The £250 prize is sponsored by Macfarlanes, a London-based law firm known for the quality of its work, dealing not only with the full range of corporate and commercial matters, but advising clients on their private affairs as well. This prize is sponsored by the firm’s corporate crime and investigations team which is headed by partner Neill Blundell, a frequent guest speaker on the MA Corruption & Governance.
