The City of London and its Tax Haven Empire

Department of Law public lecture


The City of London is an offshore island inside the British nation state, floating partly free from the democratic rules and restraints that bind the rest of us and fed by a network of tax havens around the world. Nicholas Shaxson looks at how this secretive network emerged and came to underpin the City's fearsome political and economic powers today.

Maurice Glasman is director of the Faith and Citizenship Programme at London Metropolitan University.

Nicholas Shaxson is the author of Poisoned Wells, the Dirty Politics of African Oil, an associate fellow of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House) and an
experienced journalist.
