Detailed Description

The latest in a series of Global Challenge lectures from the Institute of Liberal Arts and Sciences and brought to you in partnership with the School of Social Sciences.


Building and Maintaining Trust in Politics and Parliament


Devising and delivering solutions to every global problem requires a foundation of trust between the people and communities affected by the problem and the officials and authorities tasked with addressing it.  Lack of trust in our parliamentary and political institutions risks causing those concerned about a range of issues from climate change through to housing, energy and education, to disengage from the democratic process and to look elsewhere for action.  In a world of increasing cynicism fuelled by ever more intrusive media expectations and an online world where it is hard to distinguish fact from fiction and rumour from report, how do we build and maintain that trust in our political and parliamentary authorities and institutions that is essential if we are to provide effective transparent and accountable solutions to today’s pressing problems?


Daniel Greenberg CB took up appointment as Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards on 1 January 2023.  

He is a lawyer specialising in legislation and the legislative process.  He served in the Lord Chancellor's Department (1988-1991), as Parliamentary Counsel (1991-2010), as a consultant at Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP (2010-2016) and as Counsel for Domestic Legislation in the House of Commons (2016-2022).  

He also serves as the General Editor of Westlaw UK Annotated Statutes and Topics Encyclopaedia, and is the Editor of Craies on Legislation, Stroud’s Judicial Dictionary and Jowitt’s Dictionary of English Law.  He holds a number of academic appointments and interests.  He also writes and broadcasts on ethical and religious matters. 


This lecture will be available in person as well as online via Microsoft Teams.  For those attending in person, refreshments will be available from 5.30pm onwards.  For those attending online, please register (by no later than 5.00pm on the day of the lecture) and joining instructions with further information will follow ahead of the lecture.
